Rural Emergency Medical Experience

Jeff practices pre-hospital emergency medicine as a part-time volunteer Emergency Medical Technician, operating in the rural areas of West Virginia.  West Virginia mountains and waterways attract a great deal of adventure tourism, and Jeff has the opportunity to practice what he teaches in class most very week.  He has performed real-world CPR, utilized the Heimlich maneuver on a few occasions, treated numerous bone fractures, burns, bites, stings, bleeding, infections (local and systemic), heat and cardiac illnesses, allergic reactions and airway obstructions -- all of the topics that he teaches in his classes.  Working as an EMT greatly enhances Jeff's instructorship, and enables him to bring real-world experience into the classroom.
