Air Methods Prehospital EDucation Podcast Ep. 8: No Mistakes, Just Opportunities


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 Russel Height, Lanika Tucker, Thomas Crain, and Bryan E. Love as we discussed a compelling case of a critically ill patient treated in a mass casualty situation.

In this episode, the AMPED team is joined by guests Dr. Timothy Lenz, Dr. Jillian Theobald, Dr. Jeremy Juern, and flight paramedic, Will Scott-Smith. In the world of medicine, great clinicians and organizations are always learning from their patients. We talk about a patient experience that changed the way the clinicians at Air Methods perform needle decompressions.

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.
