Course M150 – Solo Medicine is a one-day (10 hour) immediate self-care course. The course focuses on basic life support principles and how they are applied by the individual on their own behalf. Ideally suited for uniformed first responders and prepared citizens, this course is essential for any who may find themselves in a situation where immediate assistance is not likely to be delivered. In this course, students learn to apply first-aid care to themselves when necessary.
Students in this course participate in guided instruction, practical exercises, as well as situational examinations to ensure mastery of the subject matter. Participants will master skills designed to identify life/limb threatening injuries, all sources of bleeding and hemorrhage control. Also included within this course are the basics of wilderness medicine and disaster preparedness.
Successful participants will receive a basic trauma kit and pocket-sized trauma hand book.
