Managing stress, resilience critical for mental health in EMS

by Bruce Evans, Fire Chief Upper Pine River Fire Protection District and President of the National Association of EMT

Being in emergency medical services is rewarding. You get a chance to make a difference in people's lives. Occasionally, you're lucky enough to save people. But there are also a lot of emotions involved when you're in an EMS environment. And your senses are really challenged. So, it’s important we help our paramedics and EMTs develop techniques they can use to cope with these experiences.

In the setting of life-threatening hemorrhage, the goal of the trauma team is to stabilize and save the patient’s life. Attacking the problem with a focus on decreasing blood loss, rapid and balanced resuscitation, management of both surgical and non-surgical bleeding, and resource utilization will help in that fight. This case included interventions such as vascular access, initiation of MTP, and hemorrhage control utilizing QuikClot Control+® Device, which are all adjuncts in pursuit of blood loss mitigation. Ultimately, it is up to the treatment team to determine when it's best to utilize them.
