Thank you and have a great day!

New CAPCE courses coming soon:

Stroke: A New Standard of Care for Large Vessel Occlusions

  • Lecture Credits: 0.5
  • Designed for: MFR, EMT, Paramedic
  • Category: Medical

The 2015 AHA Stroke Guidelines are driven by five groundbreaking studies, which emphasize validated technological advances in stroke care. This course is designed to introduce large vessel occlusion (LVO) strokes and the profound impact that early recognition by EMS can have when combined with transport to an interventional stroke center.

Stroke: Anatomy and Pathophysiology

  • Lecture Credits: 0.5
  • Designed for: MFR, EMT, Paramedic
  • Category: Medical

Stroke is a serious and costly problem facing our nation. In the United States 800,000 people are having strokes every year, making this the 5th leading cause of death and the number one cause of disability. Thousands of these patients are suffering from long-term neurodeficits. Ranging from memory loss to paralysis, these men and women will have to make enormous changes to even the smallest of everyday activities. With so many people suffering from strokes each year we must ask ourselves, "are we identifying every stroke we encounter in the field?” This course seeks to help EMS responders to more effectively identify the signs of a stroke.

Stroke: EMS Transport Options

  • Lecture Credits: 0.5
  • Designed for: MFR, EMT, Paramedic
  • Category: Medical

Following the onset of stroke it has been estimated that with every passing minute, prior to reperfusion therapy, a mind boggling 14 billion synapses and 1.9 million brain cells are lost. As EMS professionals we must strive to make quality emergency decisions. When it comes to a patient having a stroke your ability to quickly recognize, and respond with the appropriate treatment and transport decision, plays a critical role in determining the patient’s overall outcome. This lesson is designed to empower EMS professionals to make quality emergency transport decisions on behalf of stroke patients, by identifying the capabilities and limitations of various destination options.

Special thanks to our sponsors for helping to bring this education to you.
