Owning the Airway
This past week, we were able to host our first EMS training in person in several months here at the STHCS training center. Denise Cuillo of Mercy Flight presented “Owning the Airway,” which was a course for both BLS and ALS EMS Providers. This course was available in person with limited attendance as well as a virtual attendance option. Those attending in person were able to participate in a skills session following the presentation.
Thankfully, many EMS providers have received their COVID-19 vaccine making this training possible. Also, social distancing and mask-wearing was observed throughout this training, and it was a great success. We are looking forward to moving toward getting things back to “normal.”
