MedicCast Episode 440

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 will take a look at several items surrounding CPR both before EMS arrives on the scene and what we might be doing once we get to the side of a cardiac arrest victim.

Then in this week’s tip segment we will have some great information about Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty. I also have an interview conducted by EMS Garage host Chris Montera with Medstar Mobile Healthcare’s Matt Zavadsky and Dr. Dan Swayze from Pittsburgh who both update Chris about what their systems are doing to continue to move forward with mobile integrated healthcare programs. How are community paramedics impacting patient care around the country more and more? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.
