Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep. 6: MO’ ECMO!


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 flight nurse, Chase Niewoehner and Dr. Christina Creel as they walked us through a complicated ECMO transport.

In this episode we are joined by our two previous guests again as we discuss another ECMO case that will get your critical thinking skills a run for their money! Get your thinking caps on because we will be dealing with all types of shock and lifesaving devices that depend on your fundamental knowledge of physiology and anatomy to save a life.

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.
