Re: Competencies/Educational Requirements


Good morning, Eileen:

How are you doing? Are you and Rick still in SC?? Things seem to be humming along at Air Methods by the size of
the helicopter orders. Marianne and I are heading for Cabo the end of the month for her 60th and our 25th.

All the best,

Russ

Work Schedule Research

Instead of reinventing the wheel I thought I would ask for help for the
wealth of experts on the list.  I am looking for any research, studies,
documentation etc on crew schedules for RW flight crews.  I am particularly
interested in stuff such as rotations, number of days in a row, fatigue
issues based on number of flights or hours on duty, 12 vs. 24 hour shifts
etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Please reply off list.

Respectfully,

Lee Richardson

RE: airway skills lab

Scott,
In my experience live animal labs are the by far the best training tool
for surgical airway skills much better than cadavers. We have used a
variety of training mannequins and while they are good for basic
instruction and identifying land marks they lack realism while
performing the surgical procedure. 
Pig tracheas have worked well for us in the absence of animal labs.
I don't have any noteworthy experience with any intubation mannequins
other than the standard ones we've used in ACLS for the last 20 yrs. Cat
labs work very well for neonatal/infant intubation training.
Hope this is of some help. Would be happy to hear of your experiences
and any information you gain from this post.

Thanks,
Mitch Hathaway, Flight Nurse/EMT
