FOPS E Course blog
Can’t believe we were on day 8.
Nice early start with a review to consolidate learning.
We then had presentations on Toxicology, Pharmacology and Drug Administration
After the morning break 3 incidents were run,
Teenage boy with undiagnosed hyperglycaemia
And when it was my turn to take the lead an unconscious casualty who was in a town centre suffering from a seizure. Could have kicked myself at the hand over to the paramedic cause I forgot to check blood glucose (Acc proc DRcABCDEfg Done Ever forget glucose). Other than that it went ok.
We then sat our Medicine In Remote Areas exam and passed. 1 brain freeze moment where I reversed the systolic blood pressure at the radial pulse with the carotid pulse…. Dohh
To finish the day, we talked about intra muscular injections, and did practical cannulation on a manikin arm.
