Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep. 10


Our podcast, AMPED (Air Methods Prehospital EDucation) is back with another episode this month! The podcast, designed for pre-hospital and in-hospital care providers, sheds light on the unique and challenging clinical scenarios faced by our emergency medical crews. It is a first-of-its-kind platform in which air medical and in-hospital clinicians share their stories from the frontlines and learn from one-another’s unique experiences in providing lifesaving care.

In our previous episode, we were joined by guests Dr. Alexis McKee and Dr. Joan Noelker as we discussed the many facets of diabetes, providing useful background, context and understanding about this health condition.

In this month’s episode, we examine and discuss how the patient care challenge is compounded in the transport of severely burned patients due to the remoteness of the request and the limited local resources. We are joined by flight paramedic Orlando Marquez, burn nurse Kelly Marquez, and Dr. Brett Hartman who directs the adult and pediatric burn units at Riley Hospital for Children Speedway Burn Unit and Richard M. Fairbanks Burn Center.

The podcast is hosted by Joe Hill; Hawnwan “Phil” Moy, MD, Medical Director for ARCH, Air Methods Illinois and Missouri; and John Wilmas, MD, Medical Director for ARCH, Air Methods Illinois and Missouri. Collectively, the three hosts bring decades of experience in emergency medical services and an array of diverse perspectives to the table.
