Day 2 Afternoon -- IVs, Complicated Surveys, Body Temperature
The afternoon was a whirlwind of short lectures and demonstrations on a variety of subjects. Aaron and Sophie ran through installing an IV line, and taught the more complicated venus cutdown for difficult IV access cases
Later, Loren expanded on the morning's lessons by going through a detailed primary and secondary survey, while Frank ran everyone outside for a Megacode --- an emergency review in which each medic performed a primary survey on one of their colleagues. Frank then ended the day's instruction with tricks on how to work on a patient while maintaining their core body temperature.
