Our podcast, AMPED (Air Methods Prehospital Education) is back this week with a new installment. The podcast, which launched in early 2021, 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 one-another’s unique experiences in providing lifesaving care.

In our previous episode, flight nurse Christopher Becker recounted his transport of a sick patient in shock. The AMPED Podcast crew, with the help of ICU docs Dr. Brian Fuller and Dr. Amjad Musleh, discussed the different types of shock and diagnosing its states.

In this week’s episode, airing Wednesday, we address treatment options for this patient. The AMPED team with Dr. Fuller, Dr. Musleh, and our new guest, Dr. Eliza Dunn, discuss which vasopressors, inotropes, or inodilators would be most helpful when treating this patient. 

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.
