Description
This is an intensive course covering the theoretical background and essential skills for responding to emergencies and rescues in avalanche terrain. Stability analysis, terrain evaluation, travel techniques and decision making tools are integral to accessing patients. Avalanche specific medical topics such as Triple H Syndrome have implications for long term patient care. Advanced search and patient transport techniques are inherent to rescues in this environment. Classroom theory will be balanced with in-field practice.
