First-on-scene burn treatment

  • Mon, March 28, 2022
    6-7 p.m.

Each year, more than 450,000 people are seen in emergency departments, clinics, or physician’s offices for the treatment of burn injuries. The quality of care that is provided within the first hours of a burn injury can impact the burn victim’s long-term outcomes.

Lee Faucher, MD, co-director of UW Health's Burn and Wound Center will discuss the initial management of small and large burns of various etiologies. Attend this event and gain a better understanding of the challenges related to burn treatment.

Learning points will cover airway management, fluid resuscitation, pain control and how to cover burns for safe transport. Care for both pediatric and adult burn patients will be discussed.

EMS providers (all levels) and emergency department staff are welcome to attend.

The event is free. CEUs will be provided for EMS providers.

The event is an online WebEx hosted by the Emergency Education Center.
