Airway Management

May 8, 2014

In the fall of 2013, the CoAEMSP released their Airway Management Recommendation, which has prompted a lot of questions among program directors looking for a way to collect this information.

In a transcript of the CoAEMSP’s September 2013 webinar about this change, one educator asked:

“So as a clinical coordinator for my paramedic program, I must document ‘50 airway attempts across all age groups’ for each of the paramedic students (student name, date, patient age, etc.). This will be a NIGHTMARE of skill documentation you are generating with this. Any suggestions?”

Well, after the changes we’ve made to help keep your paramedic programs in compliance, we can wholeheartedly suggest Fisdap Skills Tracker as the answer!

Whether students are documenting lab practice on a manikin, quick adding skills in the hospital, or filling out a patient care form for a field run, it’s easy!

Top 4 Bug Fixes from March-April

April 22, 2014
  • Week view and list view corrected when scrolling across months. In the new Scheduler, if you were scrolling down the page and you moved from, say, April 30 to May 1 in the same week, the calendar got confused about which month you were looking at.

Paramedic Psychomotor Competency Package (PPCP) Skill Sheets Updated

December 19, 2013

When we rolled out the new Lab Practice feature early in 2013, the now-outdated NREMT Pilot Mark 2 skill sheets were attached to the default set of Lab Practice items (found in the Lab Practice section of your Skills Tracker settings page).  We have now updated the default set to include the newer skill sheets from the NREMT: the Paramedic Psychomotor Competency Package (PPCP). 

Bug Fix: Shifts no longer auto-locked after being reopened by an instructor

November 12, 2013

In the Skills Tracker, once a shift is locked by a student or an instructor or auto-locked by the Fisdap Robot when the deadline for the shift passes, students cannot make changes to the shift. If the student needs to make changes to the shift, he can ask his instructor to unlock it for him. However, we were receiving reports that the Fisdap Robot would auto-lock the shifts again (often before the student had a chance to update the shift) because the Fisdap Robot would still treat it as a "late" shift. 

New ALS skill definition

September 23, 2013

In the ALS report (the first report under the Student Experience tab), we show you a closer look at ALS runs in the field. For a long time, an "ALS call" was limited to runs where either an ECG and an IV were reported or runs with a medication administration other than oxygen. Due to popular demand, we have expanded the report to include a new definition of ALS. 

With the new definition of an ALS skill, a call will be considered ALS if any of the following are indicated:

CoAEMSP Airway Management Recommendation reflected in Fisdap

August 16, 2013

In accordance with the CoAEMSP’s recommendations for demonstrating competency with airway management, we have made an update to Fisdap’s Skills Tracker. We added a new checkbox field under Patient Assessment that asks students to indicate if they have “successfully managed the patient’s airway.”
