Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep. 40: MacGyver and Medicine


Any pediatric case comes with a higher degree of tension due to a variety of factors, including compensatory efforts to distress leading to a precarious “cliff” when those efforts cease. When our team is called to assist a 5-year-old child struggling to breathe but still exhibiting strong vital signs, how will the AMPED team react? This episode emphasizes the importance of acknowledging that while we aim for perfection in our actions, sometimes achieving “good” outcomes is sufficient. Recovery is a journey, and there are skilled and compassionate teams ready to take over patient care as we transition. We’re joined by Robert Pringle, MD; Jamie Hogue, MSN, RN, TCRN, CEN, CFRN; and Greg Denz, NRP, FP-C, BS.
