This will be my first time teaching a Provider Course and I’m looking for some pointers.

Included are pointers when teaching a Handtevy Provider Course for the first time:

  • Familiarize yourself thoroughly with the Course content including but not limited to: PowerPoint slides, scenarios, and equipment.

  • Engage participants through interactive discussions and real-life examples to enhance the group scenarios.

  • Teach a small group as practice and be adaptive to the learning styles of your audience.

  • If you have any questions, please reach out to our education support team.

I am receiving an error with a link in the PowerPoint.

Issues with a link embedded in the PowerPoint are usually due to an old or outdated PowerPoint. Be sure to download the most recent PowerPoint slide at least one day before your Course date.

If the error persists, please contact our education team and provide details about the error or the specific link to help diagnose and resolve the problem more effectively.

What medications can be delivered through the distal femur?

Medications that can be delivered through the distal femur route typically include analgesics and some anesthetics. There is recent data to suggest that giving Amiodarone or Lidocaine through the IO reduces the efficacy of the medication as they are lipophilic and are therefore absorbed by the fat in the bone marrow. Other than that, all other medications can be used IO. Specific medications may vary based on clinical protocols and guidelines.

Is there a suggested make and model mannequin to use for IO: placement and training?

Teleflex will be releasing a femoral IO trainer (via a 3rd party) this year (2024)

I’m interested in assisting at one of your upcoming Handtevy Instructor Courses. What steps do I need to take?

We appreciate your interest!

To assist with one of our upcoming Handtevy Instructor Courses, please contact our education team. We'll provide you with details on the application process and any prerequisites.

How do I assign roles including pit crew roles to Providers as I prepare to run scenarios during my Provider Courses and how should they be assigned?

  • Cardiac Arrest Scenarios: Here we recommend using the High Performance CPR model which uses numbered positions

    • Position #1: Compressor

    • Position #2: Monitor / IO placement

    • Position #3: Airway

Tailor this concept to your agency and typical personnel configuration.

  • Non-Arrest Scenarios: One person acts as the moderator and the parent on the scene

    • Acting as the parent provides additional stress for the team working on the call.

    • When the team asks for information such as assessment or vital signs, this person will provide it (then immediately return to acting like the parent).

The team working on the call should split into a minimum of two roles:

  • Front person: This is the team lead who makes the initial assessment after interfacing with the parent and child. They ask their other team members to perform tasks

  • Medication person: This person is the only one using the Handtevy app during the scenario. They draw up and administer the medication using the medication administration cross-check process.

  • Additional team members (EMT or PM) who can assist in any way needed.
