Coordinated Attacks and the Active Shooter Tactic: What Emergency Responders Need to Know
The concept of using a coordinated hybrid attack against a domestic civilian and law enforcement population was first publicized during the Mumbai, India Attacks in 2008. In 2015, it was again used against Paris, France with similar results. What if it were to happen inside the United States? How prepared are we and what does the local emergency responder need to know in order to combat and manage such a wide scale and impactful event.

Excited Delirium and Law Enforcement Toxicology
Once a controversial theory, excited delirium is now becoming understood as an acutely life threatening medical emergency. Initially described by Dr. Luther Bell in 1849, it is the end result of a loss of homeostasis from decompensated psychiatric disease, or intoxication from drugs of abuse. Identification of excited delirium is important for EMS, fire, and law enforcement responders to help prevent in-custody deaths, and to ensure responder safety by learning the proper techniques to interact with these patients.
Topics discussed in this presentation will include identification and understanding of excited delirium, physiology and treatment, and the novel role for intramuscular Ketamine. Also covered during the lecture will be the physiologic effects of tasers when deployed on excited delirium and other patients, and the expanding role of naloxone while dealing with overdose patients.
