Mt. Rose - Ski Tahoe Offers Advanced Life Support Services (08-Feb-10)

Mt. Rose, USA, Feb 8, 2010 - Mt. Rose, Ski Tahoe provides its guests

Mt. Rose – Ski Tahoe provides a service for its guests that is truly unique in the Lake Tahoe region…through a cooperative agreement between Mt. Rose, the Regional Emergency Medical Service Authority (REMSA) and North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District, the Mt. Rose Ski Patrol is now able to provide paramedic level Advanced Life Support for sick and injured guests. Advanced Life Support (ALS) allows paramedics who work as ski patrollers to perform advanced skills and procedures on patients that normally could only have been done by paramedics on an ambulance or medical helicopter. ALS involves the use of invasive and non-invasive procedures such as cardiac monitoring, pacing and defibrillation, pain management, advanced airway management for respiratory emergencies, intravenous access and the ability to administer numerous emergency medications prior to the arrival of ground or air medical transport.

These skills and procedures can prove to be the difference in the survival of critically injured or sick guests and many can be done while the skier is still on the slopes. There is no charge for this additional service. This program allows paramedics from REMSA or North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District who also are Mt. Rose Ski Patrollers to use their ALS skills, training and experience in contrast to EMT basic skills that are performed by most other patrols in the nation.
