Bariatric Patient: Care & Transport (v2)
This program illustrates the assessment, treatment, and transport of a morbidly obese patient. Morbidly obese patients often suffer from a multitude of health concerns; assessments can be complex and may need to be modified.
It is important for EMS not to get caught up in the operational aspects of transport and to remember these patients need care and respect.
