SPINAL INJURIES AND HEAT ILLNESS POSITION STATEMENT

The NCATA, NCOEMS & NCHSAA have jointly created a statement regarding spinal injuries and heat illness and how we each should work together and under the same protocol. This was shared with all NC EMS workers and administrators. I fully expect ALL ATs to also review this document and be familiar with it. It might be something you print and share with your local EMS providers during your EAP review / safety time out before your games.

ATHLETIC TRAINING CHALLENGE:  REGISTER ALL AED 

We know AED can save lives but you have to know where they are located.  Download the PulsePoint AED app and report every AED you see.  Building an electronic registery of AED can also save lives!  More than 350,000 Americans each year have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) where the heart stops beating, and only 12 percent survive, according to the American Heart Association. The chance of survival decreases by ten percent with every passing minute without CPR.
