Medical classes become certified in Stop the Bleed
Pre-nursing/pre-med and sports medicine students collaborated over last week learning new technical skills and getting certified in Stop the Bleed. Technical skills included subcutaneous and intramuscular injections, inserting IVs and glucose testing, and bandaging. Over 100 students were certified in Stop the Bleed. Nice job!!
Traffic Stops at LCTC
LCTC Criminal Justice students recently learned traffic enforcement, tactics, and how to conduct traffic stops in the parking lot of the school. Students determined appropriate use of force based on scenarios presented to them. Traffic stops are one of the leading causes of death to law enforcement officers each year, so it is important to practice proper technique and proper communication skills with the occupants of the vehicle. This reduces the risk of injury to both the officer and the civilians involved in the traffic stop.
Medical student learn about veterinary science
Animals came for a visit to the LCTC grounds. Students in the advanced medicine classes recently had a veterinary medicine unit that included vaccines, zoonotic illnesses, nutrition, and preventative care. They learned how animals can help with therapy for patients with mental health issues and traumatic brain injuries as well as other neurological issues. The pet farm was set up at the career center for a day.
