Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 18: The Cost of Experience

7/20/2022
First responders see the unique, the unusual, the horrifying and the heartbreaking on a regular basis. On some calls, all the breaks go your way. On other calls, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. That's the cost of experience. On this episode of AMPED, our team discusses an accident involving a rock crusher in a quarry with complex, interlocking problems, and unusual circumstances that led to lessons hard-earned. Our team is joined by: Amber George, RN Brian Gremminger,...

Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 16: Stroke a Cord

5/18/2022
Did you misread that title? Maybe you did and maybe you didn't.

This usually leads our team down the right path, but sometimes leads them astray and takes them down the wrong clinical pathway for a patient. This episode takes the listener through these biases and discusses how to combat them, as we are joined by flight nurse, and host of The Q...

Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 15: Caring for the Caregiver

4/20/2022
First responders and clinicians often see things that are unimaginable to the average person as a part of their jobs. Yes, this is the nature of the work, but first responders and clinicians are human, and sometimes what they see affects them deeply. First responders have a 2.5x increased risk of suicide compared to other jobs. How do we help our colleagues handle trauma? How do we care for our caregivers. We discuss that in this episode as we are joined by: Stephanie Queen, RN, Taylor...

3/16/2022
When a tornado strikes and causes a mass casualty incident (MCI), how does the team integrate itself into a larger team of first responders doing a variety of different jobs? How does the team arrive on scene when flight is impossible? And upon successfully saving one life, how does the team reconcile that success with the multiple other lives lost? These questions and a harrowing story await in this edition of the podcast. We are joined by: Amy Boultinghouse, RN, Chase Niewoehner,...
