Charles Finch, DO, Medical Director for MedEvent911 and a Board-Certified Emergency Physician advocates, "providing prompt, efficient, high-quality medical care to patients experiencing both life-threatening conditions, such as a heart attack or stroke, or routine emergencies, such as rehydration or heat-related illnesses, because it drastically improves the overall outcome of our patients."
MedEvent911 is the health and safety response team for the Milwaukee Brewers in the Maryvale Sports Complex in Phoenix, AZ. Because all of the MedEvent911 are affiliated with an emergency medical response agency, either public or private, and have Fire Department experience, the liaison with Fire and Emergency transport crews, when necessary, is seamless. While the majority of day to day interactions with Milwaukee Brewer fans involves sun screen and band-aids, it is essential that the highest level of emergency response skill be available for the unanticipated crisis or disease complication.
Of course, not all outdoor event emergencies are life-threatening but a positive outcome may depend on the assessment experience of the emergency medical professional. Often seasonal visitors to Arizona are unprepared for the intensity of the sun and the impact of unanticipated heat as the temperature climbs over 100°. A participant or spectator may become disoriented, lethargic, or even combative from conditions ranging from diabetes to heat stroke to food poisoning. The triage experience...knowing the difference between symptoms...of the MedEvent911 crew is an essential safety component for event organizers.
In addition to providing care the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball team and their fans, MedEvent911 served as the emergency response and safety partner for Arizona Senior Olympics at various locations across the greater Phoenix area between February 19th and March 6th, 2011. Among several upcoming events at the Phoenix Convention Center, MedEvent911 will be the on-site safety partner for Shamrock Foods regional food show March 8th and 9th, 2011.
