Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep. 7: It Takes a Village


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 two previous episodes, we discussed two complicated ECMO transfers with flight nurse, Chase Niewoehner, and Dr. Christina Creel.

In this episode the AMPED team is joined by Russel Haight, CCRN, Lanika Tucker, RN, Thomas Crain, Clinical Director at Air Methods, and Bryan E. Love, MD. We discuss a compelling case of a critically ill patient treated in a mass casualty situation. We cover crucial triage decisions, a rare but severe traumatic injury, and stress the importance of falling back to our training.

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.
