Wilderness Expedition Dentistry Workshop and Dealing With Facial Trauma In An Austere Environment

Wednesday, October 19th

Wilderness Expedition Dentistry Workshop

This hands on workshop deals with preventing , diagnosing and managing dental issues in an austere environment. Dental Pain accounts for more than 16 % of all Medivacs. Dental pain can be very debilitating. Preventing it would be the best solution. But what can you do on an expedition when you are faced with it. You would be totally outside your comfort zone . Treatment when properly done could give you a simple rapid solution.

This workshop has been running for the last 13 years. We have constantly adapted and fine tuned it based on questions, experiences, situations that medics have faced . We have excelled at this workshop by consistently keeping it hands on, simplified , step by step training .

At the end of this workshop you will be able to give Local Anaesthesia in the mouth, do a dental filling , place a dental splint, save a tooth that’s been knocked out, do a simple extraction and finally incise and drain a dental abscess.

Dealing With Facial Trauma In An Austere Environment

Every Medic thinks that when they are faced with Facial Trauma they can get Medivac quickly and easily. This may not be the case. Weather and other factors could prevent this. This course is based on that situation (the stimulus of this workshop was such a situation , faced by my colleague in Kurdistan)

Jaw dislocation is easy to treat. The longer you wait the harder it gets.

In this stepwise pictorial hands on workshop, you will learn how simple reduction, stabilisation of Jaw Fracture . We will discuss through step by step pictorial slides and practice the various contemporary ways you can reduce dislocated jaw joint. Procedures that can do no harm, but if successful a world of satisfaction. We will go through useful techniques of inserting post & anterior nasal packs. Stabilisation of midface fractures.

This workshop is to influence your adaptive thinking of utilising what you have.

Smart Intelligence

Tuesday, October 18th - Thursday, October 20th

Instructor: Christopher Young

The ideal student has both search and search management experience. The class will not devote much time to instructional techniques, thus the participant should feel comfortable instructing. While the goal is to produce instructors, anyone is welcome since the knowledge you gain could help save a life.

The Intelligence Process of gathering information regarding the missing subject occurs during every search incident. We recognize intelligence information is used to build a subject profile; gather lists of people with firsthand knowledge of the missing subject that we want to talk to; and task investigators to research and mine information from various sources, like social media or cell phone data, to determine where to look and what to look for.

However, during the initial stage of an active search for a missing person, intelligence gathering can be very daunting, chaotic, haphazard or worse not initiated thus delaying the compiling of crucial information that could shorten the time it takes to locate the subject. In any other aspect of the search operation like ground searching or technical rope rescue we preplan, train, and develop processes to be more efficient.

In this course the student will learn the intelligence process in the search for missing persons including but not limited to:

  • An overview for those engaged in missing person investigations and what does law enforcement and search and rescue bring to the incident
  • What is intelligence and the process from gathering raw data, analysis to dissemination and integration (taking action). This includes the value of intelligence in a missing person incident as well as where it can fail
  • The searcher and planning data to obtain and the use of missing person questionnaires
  • The face-to-face interview including the setting, demeanor and whom to interview
  • Other types of interviews including post search, remote, in the field and door to doorSearching in the age of online social media
  • Crowdsourcing and the use of surveillance systems
  • Photo search: metadata EXIF
  • Cell phone forensics guide for search and rescue
  • International mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) catchers
  • Geolocation services: Web-based browser apps
  • Other current and future technologies
  • Prepare pre-plans for the gathering of intelligent information prior to amissing person incident
  • Developing decision trees
  • Developing lists of reflex tasks for the intelligence process
  • Developing algorithms for transitioning between the initial actions into multiple operational periods and eventually to the termination of search operations
  • Develop ongoing training curricula with the goal of creating efficiencies and hone the necessary skills to perform the intelligence gathering process
