Emergency in the Land of the Thunder Dragon

Kevin Grange

Along with being the world’s most mountainous country, Bhutan has the distinctions of being the last Buddhist Kingdom in the Himalayas, not having a single traffic light, governing by a policy of “Gross National Happiness,” and having one of the toughest treks in the world.

At 216 miles, with 11 high mountain passes, (including seven over 16,000 feet), Bhutan’s epic Snowman Trek is a 24 day boxing match for the hiking boots. More climbers have scaled Mt. Everest than have finished the Snowman Trek. Historically, less than 120 people attempt the trek each year and, of those, less than half finish.

In 2010, Kevin Grange was guiding the Snowman Trek when a client went comatose at 13,400-feet (4100 meters), three days from the nearest road in the middle of a snowstorm. What followed was a miraculous rescue where Grange, the Bhutanese support staff and his clients banded together to help save a life.

Along with being entertained and engaged, students will be left with important information on incident command, altitude sickness, frontier medicine, leadership and practical tips they can utilize on expeditions or at their own agencies to improve their patient care.

Salisbury Suite at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
