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 take a look at several reminders for EMS providers to watch for specific types of patients in our communities.

Then in our tip segment interview I bring you another segment from EMS Today with a look at how Phoenix Fire Department is being extra vigilant for EMS patients who are veterans. How can we be more aware of the unique issues with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and PTSD in these patients? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.

Tip of the Week: EMS, Veterans, PTSD and TBI

EMSToday-Pedrotti-screenshotI got the chance to interview Dean Pedrotti, Fire Captain with the Phoenix Fire Department. Dean co-presented at EMS Today 2015 along with Thomas Winkel of the Arizona Coalition for Military Families, on the topic of returning veterans and PTSD and traumatic brain injury. He wants EMS providers to be more aware of the challenges of managing these patients when we encounter them and to help them find community resources to get the help they need. Check out that segment.

A special thanks again to EMS Today and especially to Physio-Control for sponsoring our podcast studio at the EMS Today conference this year.
