Two-day EMS series with presenter Bob Page in September

Internationally recognized 12-Lead ECG instructor Bob Page will lead a two-day series at Beaufort County Community College on September 1-2. This will be Page’s first presentation in North Carolina since 2019, and the first time the college offered such a series. The three classes will cover 12-lead ECG, Capnography, and Stethoscopy. These classes fulfill continuing education requirements for emergency and critical care providers. Participants can attend either day classes offered or both days for 16 hours of CE credit. There is no fee for affiliated providers, but participants should email emstraining@beaufortccc.edu to reserve a seat.

Bob Page has presented courses to emergency and critical care providers worldwide for 30 years. Author of 12 Lead ECG for Acute and Critical Care Providers, Page is highly motivating and interactive. He has a Master of Education from Colorado State University and is a Nationally Registered and Critical Care Paramedic. Page has been involved in EMS since 1978 when he became a CPR instructor.

Multi-Lead Medics 12 Lead ECG Interpretation for Acute and Critical Care Providers will take place on September 1 from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. This course will discuss proper lead placement, axis and hemiblock determination, bundle branch blocks, differentiating wide complex tachycardia and myocardial infarction recognition. It will cover the use of a 15-lead ECG for increased sensitivity for STEMI. Participants in the program will read approximately 200 12-lead ECTs to gain experience and confidence.

On September 2, Slap the Cap! The Comprehensive Capnography Course will take place from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Participants will learn the benefits of full ETCO2 monitoring and waveform assessment. The class will review the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system and learn the role of capnography in all aspects of emergency and critical care.

In Stethescopy for Dummies, participants will examine the critical role their stethoscope can play in patient assessment and learn new and improved techniques for using the commonly-carried but not often well-used instrument. This class takes place from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. on September 2, and participants should bring their own stethoscopes.

Classes will take place in the Continuing Education/Building 8 Auditorium. Walk-in participants are welcome, and doors will open at 7:30 a.m. each day for registration, but participants are encouraged to register ahead of the event by emailing emstraining@beaufortccc.edu to guarantee a seat.
