This course is designed for the winter backcountry user interested in bridging the gap between their avalanche education and medical response. The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is a great introduction to wilderness medicine and basic life support skills. This training focuses on prevention, assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses common to winter backcountry recreation and includes wilderness medicine guidelines for the treatment of avalanche victims.
This specialty course is taught by Desert Mountain Medicine instructors who are employed as either professional mountain guides, or outdoor educators, in combination with emergency medicine (e.g., emergency department, mountain rescue, ski patrol or EMS).
