MedicCast Episode 435

Good 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. In this week’s EMS news items we’re going to look at several news items that discuss the hidden challenges and costs of being an EMS provider.

Then in this week’s special tip segment we have another interview from the Physio-Control podcast studio at EMS Today back in February. Dr. Ed Dickson, JEMS medical director, sat down with me to talk about penetrating and crush injury management in EMS. Do you know what to do and best practices to handle these types of injuries? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.
