Acadia Mountain Guides Wilderness EMS Upgrade

  • Improve your assessment and scene leadership skills. Further your risk-benefit and decision-making skills. Understand real shock. Learn to safely move spine-injured patients. Treat ugly wounds and broken bones with greater confidence. Administer epinephrine for severe airway constriction. Reduce dislocated shoulders in the field. Recognize situations you can manage alone and when you need to scream for help.
  • Each day is devoted to classroom interaction and outdoor practical skills. You should expect scenarios with made-up victims and simulated wounds to occur continuously throughout the course. 
  • The course combines discussions, practical stations, and real-life simulations. Topics include assessment and management of traumatic injuries such as fractures, burns, and wounds; circulatory, nervous, and respiratory system problems; common injuries such as blisters, sprains, and strains; medical problems such as anaphylaxis, toxins, altitude, hypothermia, hyperthermia, and infections; and use of improvised materials in remote situations. The course includes information on personal outdoor preparedness, accident management, and prevention and introduces you to simple evacuation techniques and rope work. 
  • Three-year certification through Wilderness Medical Associates International will be granted following successful completion of the course.
