A LUCAS on every ambulance, Tulsa EMS response times, North Carolina EMS fees, and we’ll look at the problem of Traumatic Asphyxia in this week’s EMS Tip of the Week. If that’s what you’re looking for, you found it, right here on this week’s episode of the MedicCast.

MedicCast Episode 360

EjectionWorking_smGood day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. I’m looking forward to this week’s episode including our EMT and paramedic news items. One article I cover talks about how a charitable grant is going to change the way CPR is administered for North Dakota cardiac arrests. Then, after this week’s news, I bring you a tip of the week requested by one of you in an email recently. I heard from an audience member recently asking for a segment on traumatic asphyxia so I’ll have that later on in this episode’s EMS tip segment.

Before we get to that though, please make sure you check out the links and additional information available for you over at the MedicCast blog at MedicCast.com/blog. There’s a show notes link at the top of the page. Click that link and it will take you right to the most recent episode and you can scroll down there to find any previous episode. There’s also a search box there for you on the right if you are looking for something in particular. Take some time and make sure you follow up on the information you get on the show and understand how it applies to your EMS practice and protocols.

Tip of the Week: Traumatic Asphyxia EMS Review

I got a request for this week’s topic from an audience member a few months ago and I wanted to make sure we got it covered here on the show before I forgot. If you have a topic you’d like covered on the show, don’t forget you can send in your comments and suggestions for future episodes by email or over on our show’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/mediccast. I always respond back to you and it’s a great way to contribute to the show. So here’s the requested segment on the phenomena of traumatic asphyxiation.
