I'm really going to try and make it this year. I went once and met Anthony, Rob, BEorP and of course you 'zilla. Great time with good people and some awesome con-ed. I'll book the time off next shift!

If you have opportunity to attend this event, I strongly encourage it. It is a great experience, full of knowledge and fun.

As I did last year, I will repeat again this year. There will be a scholarship/grant/award to send someone to this event...details coming soon.

It is an incredible opportunity that most long term forum members will have seen me going on about each year for the last few years. It is not everyday that someone offers a learning opportunity like this to EMS providers. Do not miss this chance for an enjoyable day of great education. It is also great to meet 'zilla and the other forum members who make it out. If I can sneak into the country again, I just might make another appearance!

I think you would enjoy it Kate. This opportunity does not come along everyday (well, once a year). I think anyone involved in the medical profession could benefit from the experience.

I'd like to attend this lab. I did the advanced airway cadaver lab at ShockTrauma, but any opportunity to practice those low frequency skills is welcome!

Is there an update for 2012/13?

Alas, I will be stuck taking HESI exams and going to pinning rehearsal (oh joy!) on those days. As one of the scholarship recipients from last year, I can say this was well worth attending. I loved it. One of the best educational experiences in my life.

Not to mention the cute Canadian doctor with the artfully sculpted facial hair... ;-) (just kidding.)

Great chance to do some deeper thinking, practice some skills, get thrown into a pediatric "oh noesies" simulation with a team you've never worked with before... it was fantastic.

Wish I could go this year- maybe next year!

AS one who has attended, I also agree that if you have the opportunity to attend, this is completely the best hands on lab you will get.

where else will you get to see (if you are one of the first in the airway station) the docs initiate a tension pneumo and see the trachea deviate and then, when you decompress the chest with your needle, you see the trachea move back midline. I alas was not one of the first but the discussion of this visual was pretty cool.

And Anthony, if you win the airway gauntlet this year I'm gonna cry "Rigged"

I watched a friend, and City member do a field amputation under the eye of an Afganistan experienced Doc...if you can find that elsewhere...well, I'd still go to this one, but good on you.

I/Os in every location as often as you want, brain discections, scenarios where you're truly tested and then mentored by a medical school doc, and you even get to see our very own City doc surrounded by amazingly beautiful ladies yet looking like he's not slept in a month...C'mon, just seeing him suffer has got to be worth the cost of admission?

Truly, I've never, ever, in a paramedic environment been treated with such respect, and had such clear and vital goals laid out in front of me...I'd gladly pay $400 for this next time I'm available to go....no bullshit...

If you can go, you should go. It truly is as simple as that. $40? Are you friggin' kidding me? I put my hands on, intubated, placed I/Os, and discected a ton of cadavers. This Lab is a gift.

There are so many good things that can be said about CAP lab and that those of us who have been will keep repeating. I think that this point is one of the biggest things that makes CAP lab such a great learning experience though. The doctors there really are interested in teaching paramedics and have respect for what we do. Despite their incredible knowledge and experience, they still somehow manage to teach in a way that is not at all condescending. Rarely do we ever have learning opportunities in EMS where we can get such an amazing learning experience, especially without egos getting in the way.

For content updates, watch the Facebook page. But I'll give you a hint at one particular station: think Kathy Bates in "Misery".

Wendy, I'm totally telling Rupi that you said that.

Yep, I'll agree doc looks like he hasn't slept in a long time, but hey, I was pretty bedraggled myself coming in off duty and not near enough sleep. I definitely will be coming again this year, it's an awesome refresher and was well worth the money. As others have said, you just can't get this experience for so cheap anywhere else. Love the stations ran by the residents with all the individual systems where you can just pick their brains to your heart's content. The year I went the pedi station was great, but can someone PLEASE convince the weather to cooperate so we don't freeze our ever living butts off ? I'm not a fan of 12 degrees ! Too cold ! Otherwise, it's fabulous - so who's on the I'm coming list this year ? Call out !

Yeah, the weather hates the CAP Lab. It can be sunny and 60 degrees the week before or after, but not during. We've endured all kinds of weather for this: snow, sheet ice, howling wind with freezing cold. We talked this year about moving it to a different time of year, but honestly, the local EMS community has come to expect it in November/December. I'm sure that it is doing nothing to improve tourism for the Dayton area, which is actually quite beautiful and sports more park space than any other city its size.

I don't know DocZ, the year that Anthony and I went and Anthony won the airway gauntlet, the weather was cold but not terrible. Are you sure that it's been bad every year.

No, we had one good year. The others, I was washed, blown, or slid out of the parking lot at the end of the lab.

The year I went I froze my ass off!!! t was brutal cold...had to go buy a jacket and hat. The problem was I did not know which hat to buy...this college or that college....would I be killed on sight or welcomed as their own...was a very tough decision standing in Walmart especially when you do not know shit about local teams.
