FYI, any AED can be a "home" AED. Get trained, learn how to maintain your AED and be prepared.

[04/07/21]   A Saint for CPR: Saint Giuseppe Moscati (1880-1927) was a dedicated single layman, a doctor who served the poor for free and risked his life to rescue elderly patients during a volcanic eruption. He was a pioneer in the field of biochemistry whose published research led (among many things) to the discovery of insulin as a treatment for diabetes. He was among the first to use CPR and his innovative patient-centered method influenced the field as a whole and encouraged a more holistic approach to medicine.


Foot CPR is now being suggested to First Responders. Yes, FOOT CPR.

Foot CPR rears its' ugly head. Again.

[02/27/21]   Updates for Heartsaver 2020: The AHA has authorized additional course paths so that we may tailor your class to your time constraints. For instance, if your office would like training, but does not need it for a license (like a personal trainer/teacher), we can shorten your class time. If you have a babysitter in the family, we now have a special class option just for our babysitters! Three cheers for flexibility. While this will likely not affect costs (our fees to the AHA are going up), it will allow for a more efficient use of your time. Virtual training options are also available. Simply take the first part of the course online, we drop-off your manikins, and, using a webcam, we can check your skills while maintaining maximum distancing.

[02/18/21]   For our clients and students waiting for certification ecards: Ecards have been ordered. Due to the unprecedented weather situation in Texas (where the AHA is based), ecard issuance has been delayed. Once our ecard bank is replenished, ecards will be issued.

Small Limb Bleeding Control 101 with @nardoctor

How To: Bleeding Control in the pediatric population. Similar to adults, pediatric patients can have life threatening bleeding from the extremities. Below I review how to control the bleed.
Anatomy-In the Upper extremity the brachial artery (Pic 2) is the major vessel and runs along the medial(inner) portion of the upper arm. The major vessels of the lower extremity are the femoral artery and the deep femoral artery which both run along the medial(inner) portion of the leg. The circumflex artery runs on the outer portion of the leg.
Direct Pressure- Direct pressure should be your immediate response to bleeding in a child. Apply direct pressure with your fingers or palm at the site of bleeding and direct pressure to the bone below. Alternately, you can grasp the limb at or just above the site of bleeding and squeeze until bleeding stops. This method often works with small children as their limbs are small enough that getting pressure to the bleeding source is relatively easy. This may be all you need to get them to the hospital with minimal blood loss.
Packing- You can pack a wound in a pediatric patient using hemostatic gauze or packing gauze (if hemostatic is unavailable). Hold packing material in place for minimum of 3 minutes and then secure with a pressure dressing.
Tourniquets- Tourniquets are effective in children for major bleeding that cannot be controlled with direct pressure (or circumstances prevent holding direct pressure). The CAT tourniquet has been successfully used on children as young as 1 year old. Tourniquet should be placed 2-3 inches above (closer to the heart) the source of bleeding and rechecked frequently. To make it easier, bend the base plate of the CAT as you tighten the strap.

[10/26/20]   Just ordered 10 STAT tourniquets. We are putting together a testing scenario to see if these are really "bullet-resistant" and "self-healing" as the manufacturer claims. We ordered them directly from the STAT manufacturer to ensure we get a genuine product. What would you like to see us shoot it with? SW 500? AR-15? .22? M4? We will have options.

🎃👻 great post from @thetraumaguy

Bet you thought this was a @mrs_angemi post, lol!
Which department do you think made this....Trauma/ER, O.R, ICU, Recovery or the Medical Examiner? Lol
Reminder, Halloween is 1 week away 🎃 And while I have your attention remember to apply reflective tape on you and your children's costumes and candy bags and carry a flashlight to prevent Halloween-related pedestrian injuries and deaths among children.
According to a study done by the CDC the number of childhood pedestrian deaths increased fourfold among children on Halloween evenings when compared with all other evenings.
The findings found that during 1975-1996, the number of deaths among young pedestrians was fourfold higher on Halloween evening when compared with the same time period during all other evenings of the year.
Just some facts to think about. Now have a safe Halloween! I've worked the past few Halloweens on nightshift so I'm looking forward to spending it with my wife and kids this year. And yes I'm going to bubble wrap my kids after reading this article and seeing the things I've seen in the trauma unit the past few years, lol.

Our Story

On September 09, 2009, Safety Education Specialists was incorporated in Virginia. Our story, however, starts many years before.

In 2004, Allison and Fred met at the USNA. Allison was a DOD administrator, Fred was Security. After writing Allison up for a safety violation, they began dating. Their 1st movie date was reviewing bloodbourne pathogens training videos.

In the following years, Fred introduced Allison to safety training and the spark of Safety Education Specialists was born. After years of working for 10 different training companies, Fred and Allison started Safety Education Specialists.

From a dining room table, to dedicated training classrooms, Safety Education Specialists has grown to include several employees and to train more than 2,000 students each year.
