Lecture Overview

When responding to an emergency incident, you are often only given the bare-essential information regarding the patient's situation provided by those on the scene. From here, the first-responder must act quickly to deduce what has happened and formulate the plan of care. Cassandra Holland offers a real-life case study to highlight just how the paramedic's detective skills can be utilised when you don't know exactly what you're walking into.
