Remote Medic and Emergency Procedures

Statistics show that heart diseases and heart attacks are the worst enemies for business travelers or expats. Getting injured by a car accident is a big worry too. Expat Preventive has developed a Remote Medic training course in order to prepare for injuries of this kind.

Remote Medic and Emergency Procedures' deals with situations in which urgent medical treatment is of vital importance. For example, because your colleague gets a heart attack, you are hit by a road accident, injured by a gunshot or stab wounds through violence or suffer from other injuries caused by working abroad. Medical assistance can be far away. Moreover, it will be different from what you are used to at home. Therefore, it is vital to be able to deal with your own or companion’s medical situation and bridge the time between the accident and the moment medical assistance has arrived. Can you learn how to temporarily stabilize injuries - even if they are life-threatening - through a medical treatment protocol? Read more
