GRMC to thank EMS

On May 22 at 8 p.m., Great River Medical Center is hosting a free event to say thank you to all local EMS providers. The evening will begin with a meal from the grill followed by two hours of education. Difficulty breathing is one of the most popular emergencies that EMS is called into action for.

On scene, EMS quickly assesses the patient and needs to make the life sustaining decision to use a nasal cannula, non-rebreather or CPAP. The class will inform guests how these tools are used in the field. To reserve a seat, call 319-768-4070.
