Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep 3: What Are My Next Steps? (Part 2)


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, flight nurse Christopher Becker recounted his transport of a sick patient in shock. The AMPED Podcast crew, with the help of ICU docs Dr. Brian Fuller and Dr. Amjad Musleh, discussed the different types of shock and diagnosing shock states.

In this episode, we continue the conversation by addressing how to treat this patient’s shock. The AMPED team with Dr. Brian Fuller, Dr. Amjad Musleh, and our new guest, Dr. Eliza Dunn, discusses which vasopressors, inotropes, or inodilators would best help this patient.

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.
