0800 - 1700ACLS for Experienced Providers
Experienced healthcare providers now have the opportunity to take their American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification to the next level with "ACLS for Experienced Providers." ACLS for Experienced Providers (ACLS EP) is a nationally-recognized certification offered by the AHA in select training venues. It was originally designed as an MD only class by the AHA. One of these venues is Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington – the only Level 1 trauma center in Washington State. The trainers for this workshop are both ACLS EP instructors at Harborview and have made special arrangements with both Harborview and the AHA to offer the ACLS EP provider-level certification for SOMSA attendees. Prerequisites include current AHA BLS and ACLS certifications. The ACLS EP certificate may substitute for standard ACLS certification. 

This version of ACLS EP has been specifically designed for SOF and Austere providers

0800 - 1700Advanced Cadaver Development Course: Critical Skills, Mobility & Perfusion Realities
The Advanced Cadaver Development Course (ACDC) specifically focuses on evidence-based emergent ‎‎interventions and the reality needed for teaching tomorrow's providers. Participants engage in a ‎‎comprehensive hands-on experience that gracefully blends fresh (non-fixed) human specimens, ‎experienced ‎medical professionals, demanding procedures, and the skill needed for Human Specimen ‎Patient Simulation ‎‎(HSPS). This course is orchestrated to dissect, explain, and train through: bleeding ‎control (digital; wound-‎packing; tourniquets; junctional bleeding, and REBOA), airway and ventilation ‎management (BLS; ALS – video and ‎direct laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, and cricothyroidotomy) ‎vascular access (IV - peripheral, cut-down, and ‎exchange; IO – manual, powered; and central venous ‎access), thoracic injury management (anterior and lateral ‎needle decompression, simple ‎thoracostomy, chest tube placement, pericardiocentesis, and resuscitative ‎thoracotomy), fundamental ‎suturing and securing, and ultrasound usage. Participants will actively locate, ‎visualize, mobilize, and ‎engage the freshly dissected anatomy of the neck, chest, abdomen, and extremities, ‎while ‎simultaneously learning how to safely and legally employ human specimens in a training routine. The ‎‎goal of this course is to singularly enhance human specimen utilization by offering hands-on ‎experience where ‎it matters most‎.

0800 - 1700K9 Tactical Casualty Care  / MARCH
This presentation focuses on prehospital, point-of-injury casualty care for the injured Operational K9 and MWD. The goal of K9-TCC's interventions is to eliminate the MAJOR PREVENTABLE CAUSES OF DEATH with the intent of only providing the medical or surgical procedures necessary to manage problems that immediately threaten life, limb, or eyesight, and to prepare the K9 for evacuation to definitive veterinary care. The lecture incorporates current K9 TCCC/K9 TECC using the M3ARCH2- PAWS approach with adaptations relative to canine anatomy and physiology.

0800 - 1200Introduction to Point of Care Ultrasound
Designed for novices to combat and tactical uses of ultrasound by special operators, or those interested in honing their basic ultrasound skills and learning how handheld ultrasound devices can improve medical care in far forward and tactical environments. Instead of feeling or listening for injuries, literally see through the body and identify life-threatening injuries like never before.  This course will have brief lectures, followed by hands-on ultrasound scanning of each other (please be sure to wear loose fitting clothing).

0800 - 1200Just a Fancy BVM: A Mechanical Ventilation Workshop
Mechanical ventilation is an essential skill for any provider who has advanced airway management as a part of their scope of practice. The ventilator is a force multiplier and improves the care of our patients by providing consistent measurable ventilation with minimal interaction from the provider.This workshop will provide hands-on experience with a range of ventilators available to the prehospital provider utilizing Swine lungs and lung simulators.  Attendees will work through scenarios and troubleshooting to learn to manipulate the ventilator to optimize settings for each patient they may face.

0800 - 1200Maximizing Trauma Training through Simulation
Students will learn and apply educational principals to develop and execute a trauma simulation that yields measurable student learning outcomes using a variety of simulation technologies.  First, students will develop a TC3 centered training curriculum that utilizes simulation technologies. Then students will validate that curriculum through hands-on application by running the simulation for other students reinforcing both TC3 individual skills and TC3 instructor skills.

1300 - 1500Hypothermia Management: From the Backcountry to the Streets
Hypothermia is a condition that is most often associated with trauma patients or those patients who have been exposed to cold environments in the backcountry. The truth is that hypothermia is a complex condition that impacts many patient populations in many situations. EMS providers are just as likely to encounter hypothermic patients in rural environments as the backcountry.    The purpose of this lab is to offer providers from a variety of backgrounds the tools necessary to recognize and address hypothermia in both urban and rural settings. Though commercially available hypothermia management kits will be discussed, emphasis will be placed on practical field expedient techniques for both passive and active rewarming.

1300 - 1700Advanced Tactical Point of Care Ultrasound
This workshop is designed for tactical operators and providers interested in learning advanced ultrasound techniques that are useful for care in austere environments or during prolonged field care. Topics covered include regional anesthesia, intracranial assessment including optic nerve sheath diameter, the Rapid Ultrasound in Shock and Hypotension Exam and advanced point of care echocardiogram techniques.

1530 - 1730Cricothyroidotomy: Master the Feel - Master the Steel
The MARCH mnemonic designates establishing an airway as the second priority after control of massive hemorrhage. If other techniques are unsuccessful or impractical, 'open' or surgical cricothyroidotomy is the FONA (front of neck access) airway alternative best supported by the literature. Building upon the preeminent work of Drs. Levitan, Weingart, Duggan et al, this tri-phased lab begins with a focused, didactic module which addresses the optimal performance of scalpel-finger-bougie technique. This is followed by two, progressive, low-fidelity/high-repetition and high-fidelity/high-intensity skill development drills, both designed to build facilitated psychomotor pathways. Throughout the learning experience, overarching emphasis is placed upon the critical but often under-emphasized effects of psychological preparedness and the decisive objective of truly 'seizing' the airway.
