Lightning, Tractors and Gators… Oh My! – Florida’s Environmental Emergencies

The Florida College of Emergency Physicians and the Emergency Medicine Learning and Resource Center’s Lightning, Tractors and Gators…Oh My! – Florida’s Environmental Emergencies series is a collection of lectures that reviews different topics within the realm of environmental and wilderness medicine specific to Florida. From beaches to forestry, alligators to amoebas, farming to tourism, each unique characteristic about Florida also carries with it a particular set of medical needs.

The frequency of encountering a victim who’s been maimed in a farming accident, attacked by an alligator, bitten by a snake or poisoned after touching a toxic coral while scuba diving are not typical occurrences and are dependent upon the locale of the emergency medicine professional. In all of these instances, timely assessment, treatment and management is critical.

Funded via by an educational grant from the Florida Department of Health, each lecture will be created by experts in the field of emergency medicine, toxicology and/or environmental medicine, and review topics such as manifestations, presentations and on-site treatment of a particular environmental or wilderness emergency.
