Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 16: Stroke a Cord


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.

On our previous episode, we were joined by Stephanie Queen, RN, and Taylor McRoy, RN, as discussed how to help our colleagues and caregivers get the right help they need to handle trauma after some of the things they may have seen in the line of duty.

Did you happen to misread the title of this podcast? Maybe you did and maybe you didn’t. Emergency medicine requires our professionals to work from limited information and rely on instincts and assessment to diagnose and treat a patient. 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 Word Podcast, Nyssa Hattaway.

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.
