MedicCast Episode 450

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’ll look at an alarming story out of New York about risks to paramedics and EMTs from synthetic drugs like synthetic marijuana and others. What can you do to protect yourself?

Then, in this week’s special tip and interview segment I have a special interview with EMS blogger, paramedic Sean Eddy who often writes some controversial articles. Recently he wrote about what type of salary EMS providers really deserve in his continuing series on responsible financial lifestyles. Do you think he’s on target with his opinion or way off the mark? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.
