Intricate Art Emergency Response Skills Courses

Intricate Art Emergency Response Skills Courses


Responding to emergency scenarios requires practice and preparation. The role of the athletic trainer in providing effective, on-site care requires a wide breadth of skills that regularly evolve, as the profession grows. Intricate Art Spine & Body Solution’s Emergency Response Skills series is a four-part approach, designed to assist athletic trainers in updating their skillset with the competencies taught to current students. The program culminates in real-time simulation scenarios designed to establish a safe environment for practicing critical decision-making. Individual feedback and collaborative debriefing will assist the practitioner in improving the outcomes when faced with time-sensitive and higher-risk scenarios.

Adjunct Airways

Effectively managing the airway can have significant impacts on patient outcomes in any emergency situation, particularly when emergency response personnel are not immediately on site. With current CAATE 2020 education standards establishing the expectation that new graduates are able to manage respiratory compromise through the use of adjunct airways, greater legal expectation for employing this skill in a time of need exists. This course provides the knowledge necessary to identify when adjunct airway should be used and teaches the skills to do so confidently.

The ability to manage hemorrhage, wound care, and closure, provide a unique capability for significant wounds commonly associated with athletic participation. The ability to perform these skills in the athletic training facility or on the field in a safe and effective manner can have implications on cost of treatments and return-to-participation decisions. This course teaches wound sterilization, techniques for numbing with lidocaine injections, the knowledge of closure materials, the skills to effectively close wounds, care and maintenance of wounds once closed, and suture removal. Participants will leave the session with their own tools and synthetic skin on which they can practice.

IVs and Injections

Patients suffering from heat-related illnesses and sickle-cell crisis can benefit from rehydration with intravenous saline solutions. Administration of medications through injection for diabetes and opioid overdose can save lives. This session teaches the knowledge, skills, and abilities to know when it is appropriate and how to perform these potentially life-saving measures.

Simulation Lanes

Many of the skills above are perishable. The critical decision-making process necessary to appropriately respond to someone experiencing a life-threatening crisis requires practice and reflection. In this session we seek to provide a safe environment for managing emergencies with guidance and reflection afterwards. We will further help develop the basic skills necessary for participants to build their own scenarios and reflection toolkits to further embed a culture of preparation into their sports medicine program.
