This was a great lecture! Really enjoyed the section on how to prioritize triages and also the nuts and bolts breakdown of how to quickly assess patients. I know this will help me better understand the flow of the ER from the Technician perspective.

A very nice introduction to emergency medicine.. Direct, applicable! I wish all receptionists would have access to a lecture like this to have them help in the prioritization of cases. Great job!

Megan, this lecture was BEYOND informative. As a client service representative, I feel it is essential to know the basics of triaging, die to the fact that not only do we see the patient first, but we are also monitoring them while they wait in the lobby for a technician or doctor to retrieve them. I think that this information is also helpful like Lisa said, to understanding the technicians decisions and being able to work with and keep clients informed. Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation skills! ~ Erin H.

This lecture is so well-organized and clear! Just from watching this I was able to write up a triage outline to share with my coworkers! Great job, Megan!

This was incredibly well done. Concise, practical, relevant and most of the information is equally valuable outside the Triage setting.
Thank you!

I am a recent graduate (under 1 year experience as a technician) and just started working in a busy 24 hr emergency practice. This was SO informative about what to look for when a new patient walks into the lobby and I am the first person that puts eyes on that animal. Thank you so much for this!
