Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 20: Juggling Two Lives


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, the AMPED team was joined by Ashley Howe, RN, and Dr. Michelle Mclean as they discuss a unique and perplexing case of stopping bleeding from the delicate internal jugular vein when usual interventions wouldn’t work.

We have talked on this show before about the complexity that can arise after suffering a stroke… but what if the patient also goes into pre-term labor while suffering the stroke? What interventions do you do? Which issue do you tackle first? What if your transport occupancy doubles mid-flight? Our team is joined by: Jeffrey Cutright, EMT-P, Dr. Nida Jamal, and Dr. Barry Campbell.

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.
