Dedicated EMS Team of 7th Rescue Team Conducted Emergency Rescue Situational Training on 15:00 to 17:00, November 10th, 2016 at its Team Office: Fire Rescue and 12-Lead ECG Operation


The dedicated EMS team of 7th Rescue Team conducted emergency rescue situational training on 15:00 to 17:00, November 10th, 2016 at its team office that included fire rescue and 12-Lead ECG operation.

Team leader Chen Wei-jen acted as the instructor in this training. He instructed standby colleagues to conduct emergency rescue situational training, including fire ground rescue and 12-Lead ECG operation. The instructor first explained the situational procedures in which, in the simulated scenario, a civilian was saved from the fire with blackened mouth and nose and no apparent injury. After the EMS team reached the site and conducted initial evaluation on the civilian’s consciousness, breathing and pulse, it was determined that the civilian had suffered from inhalational injury due to his blackened mouth and nose and was immediately treated with non-rebreathing mask. Besides improving the colleagues’ familiarity on the operation procedures, it further focused on the selection of the mask and the flow of oxygen. In recent years, CVD has become a terrifying disease. According to the 10 leading causes of death in 2015 gathered and sorted by Ministry of Health and Welfare, CVD is the second highest cause of death in Taiwan, indicating the dreadfulness of CVD. The 12-Lead ECG operation conducted inside the vehicle is conducive to the colleagues’ judgment, treatment and evacuation hospital selection regarding myocardial infarction to enhance the quality of emergency rescue before reaching the hospital.

The dedicated EMS team uses daily rescue training and discussions to improve their familiarity with all sorts of rescue techniques so that they can provide citizens with a better emergency rescue quality before reaching the hospital to ensure life safety during the actual emergency rescue process.
