9:30 AM  -  10:45 AM
Lake Superior Ballroom N,O

Description: Trying to figure out what direction to travel when EMS responds to a call with a chief complaint of “Altered LOC” can be difficult. Making sure we are treating for the right field diagnosis is important for quality patient care. A look at case studies and proper patient assessment along with differential diagnoses will be covered.

Objectives:

  • Understand the pathophysiology of AMS complaints.
  • Define several causes of altered mental status
  • Outline an approach to the assessment and treatment of the patient with altered mental status
  • Explore a differential diagnosis approach to managing patients
