2/16: Venomous Bites and Stings Lunch Talk 🐍 🦂 🕷

We learned about the management and treatment of envenomation by rattlesnake and spider bites, as well as scorpion stings, from Dr. Dan Quan, founding member of Toxicology Consultants of Arizona. The Phoenix Herpetological Society brought rattlesnakes, scorpions, tarantulas, and gila monsters to campus for educational demonstrations.

4/10: Airway Clinic with EMIG

We learned about managing critical airways via intubation and cricothyrotomy, practiced CPR skills, and applied our knowledge to a simulation on anaphylaxis.
