EMS-4202 – Hot/Cold, Bugs & Reptiles – OH MY!

May 1, 2021 – May 15, 2021



Environmental emergencies can occur in any setting.  Wildernesses, rural, suburban, and urban areas.  They include exposure to both heat and cold; drownings and other water-related injuries; and bites and stings from insects, spiders, snakes, and marine life.  The keys to effective management are recognizing the patient’s signs and symptoms and providing prompt and proper emergency care.  However, and an EMS provider, you must recognize that exposure may not be the only danger to the patient.  Environmental emergencies can involve preexisting or cause additional medical problems and injuries.
