Doctor tell me what training is necessary for personnel rendering emergency health care. Because answering questions about your health is an important part of your doctor's services. The Minnesota State Medical Association presents doctor tell me here to ask the doctor your questions. Is Janice Hughes dead. Today your health questions will be answered by Dr. S next signer junior surgeon and chairman of the Committee on automotive injuries for the Minnesota State Medical Association Dr. Max signer. Does providing emergency or disaster medical care require specially trained personnel. Yes indeed it is. Require specially trained personnel at all levels and if we might direct our remarks just to the first aid level I think it's apparent that if you were injured in a highway accident someplace you would be very grateful that whoever comes along to care for you know what to do about your broken
bones or your bleeding or your trouble breathing. You know any level of training or knowledge is not required legally for any person who will be called to respond. The emergency services that may be called in May be the ones that come to you in an accident. I don't really have to know anything to have these jobs. I think this is one of the areas that we can improve upon. However Ideally the person should be trained and has taken the opportunity to train himself through the training programs available to the American Red Cross or the Bureau of Mines or the civil defense medical self-help program. There are also advanced training programs that have been made available in Minnesota. Which I could tell you about Janice. Would you. And. The people who are professionally involved are
occupationally involved in attending to accident scenes and to emergency health problems should really have very. Advanced Training over and above what is available through the other programs I mentioned. These training programs are being made available for them through the Minnesota Department of Health and will in cooperation with the State Medical Association and through an organization known as the Minnesota rescue and First Aid Association which is a professional organization in Minnesota made up of people and organizations who are actually involved day by day in their jobs of rendering emergency health care. How about the need to know about cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This is a very important area and it is something that is not covered to tall in the Red Cross and other
general first aid courses. It is definitely a higher echelon of training. And what it means is the ability to maintain breathing and also heart action artificially. For another person until he can be brought to the hospital facility where the curative treatment hopefully can be given. In other words the drowning victim who has stopped breathing but is still possibly alive. The electrocution victim who has stopped breathing or his heart has stopped now. Or the child that chokes on a peanut or something that these people who are properly trained can maintain life artificially almost. If they can do it properly. Thank you very much stock to make signed the Minnesota State Medical Association has presented Dr. tell me recorded in the studios of KUNM at the
