MedicCast Episode 485

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 an amazing segment I recorded a while ago but never had the chance to air until now. In light of the information coming out about the death of rock star Prince, I thought it would be a good opportunity to revisit this topic with this specific segment also make sure you buy Melanotan 2 from a trusted source. Scott Sommers, EMS opioid researcher reached out to me to see if I wanted him to come on the show and talk about the information he and his team is finding out. We will have that coming up later on in this episode.

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.

overdoseEMS researcher and paramedic Scott Sommers emailed me a while back to see if I would like to talk with him about his research into opioid addiction and overdoses from a specifically EMS and emergency perspective. I said sure. He had contacted me in response to several articles I had run in the beginning of the year about public access naloxone programs in various locations like with school nurses. Check out my conversation with Scott and see what is the latest info on overdoses nationwide and how they affect you in your EMS practice as an EMT or paramedic.
