Presented by Meredith Koch, MS, BS, NREMT
Meredith began volunteering in EMS at the age of 14, quickly finding a passion for patient care and medical
devices. She obtained her B.S. in Biology from Boston
College and her M.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics from the University of Vermont.
General CPR recommendations: Updated guidelines continue to emphasis high-quality CPR: compressing the chest at an adequate rate and depth, allowing complete chest recoil after each compression, minimizing interruptions in compressions, and avoiding excessive ventilation. The recommended chest compression rate is 100 to 120/min (updated from at least 100/min). The clarified recommendation for chest compression depth for adults is at least 2 inches (5cm) but not greater than 2.4 inches (6cm). Integrated teams of highly trained rescuers may use a choreographed approach that accomplishes multiple steps and assessments simultaneously rather than the sequential manner used by individual rescuers. Where EMS systems have adopted bundles of care involving continuous chest compressions, the use of passive ventilation techniques may be considered as part of that bundle for victims of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).
The Vermont Healthcare and EMS Preparedness Conferenceis sponsored by the Vermont Division of Emergency Preparedness, Response and Injury Prevention and will be held on October 27-30, 2016 at the Grand Summit Resort Hotel at Mount Snow, in West Dover, VT.
Our confirmed speaker schedule is posted

Surviving Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are far more complex than they may initially appear and often affect the younger end of the patient spectrum. A first hand account will be given of how the decisions the paramedics, the trauma team, the surgeons, and rehabilitation providers made led to an L1 paraplegic being able to walk, ski, androck climb again. Focus on current treatment and protocols.
