File of Life Programming during Family Weekend
The File of Life program is designed to help YEMS and other first responders to quickly obtain your medical history in an emergency. This effort helps support patient needs and establish emergency contact information, helping to save lives.
YEMS ResCo Hands-only CPR Classes
Hands-Only CPR is a program designed for lay people to respond to sudden cardiac
arrest in an out-of-hospital setting. The course YEMS will teach is based upon current guidelines
from Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI), the American Heart Association, and the
American Red Cross. The class will be taught by student members of Yale EMS, all certified
EMTs in Connecticut (and mostly undergraduates). We will teach participants how to recognize
and respond to sudden cardiac arrest and activate EMS.
Harm Reduction and Naloxone Use Information from Yale EMS
Yale Emergency Medical Services (YEMS) is committed to enhancing campus safety by educating our community on harm reduction, particularly in the use of naloxone. In response to the opioid crisis impacting communities nationwide, including university campuses, YEMS seeks to proactively empower individuals to make life-saving decisions. Naloxone plays a pivotal role in this effort, as teaching our campus community how to use it effectively enables them to potentially save lives during emergencies. Our ultimate goal is to create a more compassionate and secure campus environment, with harm reduction education forming a crucial part of our mission, reinforcing our dedication to campus health and safety.
