BLS CPAP Added to EMS Repertoire

Monday, September 30, 2019

OVFC EMT's recently went through training on a new BLS intervention known as CPAP (Continous postive airway pressure). CPAP is used on patients with severe difficulty breathing as a result from asthma, COPD, CHF. CPAP has been proven to improve the outcome of patient's breathing and decrease complications, while also reducing the need for intubation (Which can cause complications). We are one of the first BLS only agencies in the area to undergo this training and provide it for our patients. OVFC is continously on the front line providing top level care to our patients.
