NEW AMPED EPISODE: MO’ ECMO

by

Our podcast, AMPED (Air Methods Prehospital Education) has returned with another episode this month! The podcast, which launched earlier this year, 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 share their stories from the frontlines and learn from one-another’s unique experiences in providing lifesaving care.

In our previous episode, the team discussed ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). As ECMO has shifted from tertiary care centers to rural facilities, the transport of these patients has increased. Like any medical procedure, there are inherent risks with the transport of these patients.

This month, the team is joined by Chase Niewoehner, flight nurse and ECMO specialist, and Dr. Christina Creel-Bulos, medical director at Emory University Hospital, to dive into another ECMO case that will give your critical thinking skills a run for their money!

Get your thinking caps on because they 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, and John Wilmas, MD, who collectively, bring decades of experience in emergency medical services and an array of diverse perspectives to the table.

AMPED is available on Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and more. To listen to the podcast and to see available streaming options, visit https://ampedpodcast.libsyn.com/. To join the conversation, use the hashtag #AMPEDpod on social media.
