Wednesday May 9, 2018 Morning – MLM 12 lead course
My Multi-Lead Medics class was developed 27 years ago after I had a bad experience with a patient because I was not aware of a condition they had. It challenged what I was taught and motivated me to learn more.Since 1990, I have presented this course to thousands of people worldwide. It is very successful and I do not have enough days to cover the requests for the class.

Thursday May 10, 2018 Morning – Stethoscopy for Dummies / How vital are vital signs
Lecture and Lab
How much did you pay for your stethoscope? How much training and lab time did you get in the proper use of the stethoscope? If you are like most providers, you will admit that it is usually inadequate. I present dozens of these classes across the country and internationally annually and I hear that from many of the students in the classes. This is a hands on, (ears on session) that includes a description of the stethoscope and how to use it properly. The highlight of the lab is where you will actually hear real breath sounds though your own stethoscope!
