Our new podcast, AMPED (Air Methods Prehospital Education), is back this week with a new installment. The podcast, which was launched last month, is designed for prehospital and in-hospital care providers and 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 can share their stories from the frontlines and learn from each other’s unique experiences in providing lifesaving care.

In this week’s episode, airing today, Joe, Phil, and John are joined by critical care physicians Brian Fuller MD MSCI FCCM and Amjad Musleh MD to discuss a case study involving the complicated “mix shock” state their patient is dying from, and the treatments they chose to provide. 

Critical questions around the cause of the patient’s shock and why it might be fatal arise when typical solutions for shock aren’t working and the patient is dying. Listen in as they tackle preparing a systematic approach based on a fundamental understanding of the types of shock, figuring out the cause of shock, and choosing the right treatment.

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.

In the first episode, the hosts interviewed a flight nurse about a case in which a patient was thrown from a motorcycle at 105 mph and needed emergency transport. The nurse recounts the unique details of the case and his medical decision-making process that ensured the patient received the highest quality care while in transport to the hospital.
