There will be riddles, tasks, and chances to buy a clue, or maybe even two as you sleuth your way to the campfire where the mystery will hopefully be solved, prizes awarded, and super sleuth declared. Individuals welcome. Teams encouraged. Costumes a bonus. A sense of humor a must! So put on your thinking caps, grab your go-go gadget gear and join in mysterious fun while supporting FAST - because we are flight crews for flight crews, there when you need us at a moments notice.

SALAD with "Shorty" (4/3/19 @ 0900-1200) Partial Approval -Free

Available Tickets - N/A

Airway trainers focus on basics such as BMV, placement of NPO, OPA, LMA insertion and laryngoscopy many have the capability to simulate vomit, but this is rarely used. Moreover such systems rely on ‘single dose’ bolus of contaminant via syringe into the esophagus. Dr. James DuCanto has pioneered a model for ‘suction assisted laryngoscopic airway decontamination’ (SALAD), which teaches techniques to both decontaminate the oropharynx from blood/vomit in a static fashion...and to perform laryngoscopy and suction simultaneously in the face of continuing contamination of the oropharynx (eg: GI bleed, epistaxis etc..) "Shorty” is one of only a handful of instructors in the world who are officially blessed by Dr. DuCanto to teach this novel technique. The workshop will include hands on practice and dynamic instruction from an instructor who has evangelically preached this technique all over the world.

Surgical Airway Lab- AM seesion (April 3rd 0800-1100) Partial Approval - Free

Available Tickets - N/A

The inability to maintain oxygenation by non-invasive means is one of the most pressing emergencies in prehospital care. To prevent hypoxic brain damage and death in a “cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate” scenario, emergency surgical airway access must be performed immediately. Even though this emergency is rare, every prehospital and critical care practitioner should be prepared, comfortable, and capable of performing this procedure as the situation will often arise unexpectedly. Clear knowledge of the anatomy, insertion techniques, and repeated skill training are essential to ensure rapid and successful completion of this procedure. Various techniques for insertion will be described for emergency oxygenation and several commercial emergency cricothyrotomy will be discussed.

About the Organizer

E.C.H.O. was founded by operational flight programs to take advantage of joint training opportunities in a less formal and no cost / low cost environment. The group is not meant to replace formal training venues or associations. It was created and designed as a way to informally utilize the wealth of knowledge and experiences brought forth by individual flight programs and their crews. In these training opportunities, the E.C.H.O. group discusses, brainstorms, and attempts to resolve issues common to public safety and EMS flight programs. These gatherings also provide flight crews the chance to share knowledge and gain insight from subject matter experts.
