EMS Cadaver Anatomy Procedure (C.A.P.) Lab
The Department of Emergency Medicine has offered Cadaver Anatomy Procedure (C.A.P.) Labs at Wright State University since 2006. These one-day seminars are designed for emergency medical services personnel who want to learn more about human anatomy and basic and advanced procedures used in EMS. Participants receive hands-on experience, have the chance to handle specimens and gain a detailed working knowledge of the human body. This is achieved through intense training led by emergency medicine faculty and residents. In 2012, C.A.P. labs will be offered on Wednesday, Dec. 5, and Thursday, Dec. 6, on the Wright State University campus.
Registration for the CAP Lab is $50 per person, which includes a continental breakfast and bag lunch. Refunds will be given until Nov. 21 with written request; no refunds will be given for cancellations after that date. For more information, please contact Cassandra Browning at firstname.lastname@example.org or (937) 395-8839.

The Greater Dayton area is widely known for having a high emergency patient caseload in its 21 regional hospitals. Advancing the skills of area EMTs and Paramedics will yield concrete benefits for the community. This seminar provides an extraordinary educational opportunity for anyone involved in emergency medical services who wishes to receive physician instruction on anatomy, physiology, and basic and advanced procedures.
Attendees obtain experience with new and innovative products. They receive information on some of the latest technologies in EMS care and have a chance to evaluate the new equipment first-hand in the lab. Advanced simulation models provide life-like experiences and allow participants the opportunity to utilize their EMS skills while getting real-time feedback and instruction. Participants gain an understanding of human anatomy as it relates to the EMS provider in addition to being more informed on the future of EMS care.
During the day-long program, participants rotate through multiple teaching stations with small group, hands-on instruction. They also have the opportunity to perform or observe many different procedures including, but not limited to, the following:
- Oral and Nasal Intubations and advanced airway techniques (with numerous airway devices, including relatively new and innovative designs)
- Cricothyroidotomy - Surgical and Percutaneous (Pertrach, quicktrach, Nutrach, etc.)
- Needle Chest Decompression
- Tube Thorocostomy
- Ultrasound guided venous access
- Intraosseous Access (EZ-IO, B.I.G. IO, FAST-1, etc.)
- High fidelity interactive simulation cases (both geriatric and pediatric)
- And many more...
Due to overwhelming positive feedback, Wright State's Center for Immersive Medical Education and Research as well as Miami Valley Hospital Simulation Lab will both offer high fidelity, state-of-the-art simulation cases to test participants' knowledge, skills, communication and teamwork.
Eight EMS Continuing Education credits (cardiac: 2; geriatric: 2; neuro: 1; pediatrics: 1; trauma: 2) will be provided by the National Center for Medical Readiness to all participants who complete the course.
