This Month’s MedicCast Live Show EMS Radio Consults
A special thanks to Dr. Ginger Campbell of the Brain Science Podcast among other shows (find Ginger’s stuff at GingerCampbellMD.com). She suggested the topic for this week’s episode and was gracious enough to come on the show live and share her thoughts about receiving radio patient information in the ER.
Also, a thank you to Dr. Craig Corey for taking the time to write his thoughts down even though he couldn’t be on the show live. Craig is the inventor of the OxyPhone pediatric nebulizer device. You’ll find that and Dr. Corey’s home page at OxyPhone.com.
The central point brought out by both of these ER docs was that we must get to the point of the call quickly, focusing on the key problem, immediate life threats and interventions taken, time to the hospital, etc. and then let the ER ask any follow up questions. Vitals are important but not as important as patient’s chief complaint and your impression of the stability of the patient.
Ginger also stressed the importance of talking to the physician after the call to learn from what you saw or did during the transport to the hospital. She said that her respect for the EMT or paramedic rises significantly when they want to learn from the calls – good and bad.
