Teenage Follies

A session at National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation (NCEMSF) Conference 2012

Friday 24th February, 2012

8:10pm to 9:10pm (EST)

branding and a mind numbing array of other risk taking behaviors found among
today’s teenagers. These actions are promoted by a readily available supply of new
chemical stimulants as well as familiar agents making a resurgence like PCP and
heroine. With these new creative feats comes a range of medical and trauma related
issues that the pre-hospital provider of a decade ago could never imagine. This
lecture will discuss some of these trends and focus on the medical challenges
