MedicCast Episode 484

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. This week’s show has more excellent content from EMS Today 2016 in Baltimore where I was covering the show from the Physio-Control booth. I chatted there with Cam Pollock from Physio-Control about some big news they announced at the event. Plus I have two segments from Carissa O’Brien on two projects she is involved with. Check those out later on in this episode after the introduction.

All of these segments this week were recorded thanks to the continuing support and sponsorship of the Physio-Control corporation. Thank them for supporting your EMS podcasting community.
