10/13/2021 Event: Avalanche Victim First Aid

UPDATE: In case you missed it, here is a recording of the event. Special thanks to Mountain Medical Academy!

Do you know what to expect after you perform an avalanche companion rescue? Do you know what steps to take to render first aid to an avalanche victim?

At the shop later this month, we’ll be hosting Mountain Medical Academy as they present “After the Avalanche: Backcountry First Aid for Avalanche Victims.”

This free lecture will teach backcountry users the common injury patterns found in victims of avalanches and demonstrate the basic first aid techniques that are needed for these injuries.

This presentation is based on research in avalanche injury patterns from Utah and around the world. Mountain Medical Academy partnered with doctors from Intermountain Healthcare, The University of Utah Medical Center, Backcountry Zero, and received input from the Utah Avalanche Center to ensure that this presentation is as accurate as possible.
