EMS Today 2011 Podcasts, Part 2


| Wednesday, April 27, 2011

At EMS Today 2011 in Baltimore in March, ProMed Podcasting hosted their podcast sessions from the exhibit hall floor with live interviews and up-to-date information about the conference. In case you missed it, here's a look at the stimulating conversations from Day 2.

The following episodes were recorded live in the ProMed Podcasting studio sponsored by Medtronic Foundation.

Improving Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survival and Provider Performance
In this episode of the MedicCast, host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, brings together a panel of the top medics in the field to talk about making our survival rates better, one provider at a time. The focus of this episode is on what the individual provider can do to improve their performance on a cardiac arrest patient response. Along for the discussion were Tom Bouthillet of the EMS12Lead.com blog, Dana Yost of the Redmond Fire Department in King County, Wash., and paramedic Tim Noonan of Roguemedic.com.

EMPACT, 12 Lead ECG Training and Online Education
In this episode of EMSEduCast, Rob Theriault and Greg Friese are joined by guests Dan Limmer, Joe Mistovich, and Tim Phalen. The first part of the episode is a discussion of the new EMPACT Training program and integration of textbooks with certification courses. We also learn about the CDC Field Triage Decision Scheme and a presentation Dan and Joe attended during EMS Today. In the second part of the episode, they discuss with Tim Phalen how 12-lead ECG education can involve distributed learning methods.

Heart Rescue Project Doctors Discuss Sudden Cardiac Arrest Saves
In this segment sponsored by the Medtronic Foundation and their HeartRescue Project, EMS Garage host Chris Montera chats with three of the medical directors involved in the Heart Rescue Project. This program looks at the shocking variability in survival rates for sudden cardiac arrest around the country and strives to seek out and share systems and innovations that different EMS agencies and hospitals are using to succeed where others are failing.

Dr. Nichol Discsusses HeartRescue Project
Dr. Graham Nichol talks with Carissa O’Brien about the HeartRescue Project, an ongoing project between the Medtronic Foundation and five universities in five states across the country with a goal of improving survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by 50% in the next five years.
