MedicCast Episode 478

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 look at a good problem to have, sedation of cardiac arrest patients who wake up because of good CPR. Have you had this happen to you?

Then, in this week’s special tip segment for EMS, I have a special interview on patient simulation technology with a representative of SimGHOSTS.org. Check out EMS educator Lance Baily as he shares the resources of this group with you and your team. Can they help your educational sessions be a little more exciting? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.

EMS Tip of the Week: SimGHOSTS Help Educators Simulate Medical Care

According to conservative estimates, more than 440,000 patients die each year from medical errors in the United States alone, and millions more suffer associated injuries.[1] Thankfully, emerging healthcare education simulation programs around the world are addressing this very issue through advances in modern technology. In these sim labs, new students and recertifying professionals enter realistic patient care environments that house high-fidelity, life-like patient manikins that speak, breathe, and react to medications.

In this episode I have Lance Baily on from SimGHOSTS the society for medical simulation experts and those seeking that expertise. The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose goal is to provide the technical and operational training support required by individuals and institutions around the United States that are improving patient care outcomes by educating healthcare professionals via advanced simulated learning environments. Check out this interview with Lance.
