Happy holidays from the PEC podcast crew! We hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and are busy planning for the upcoming festivities!
Welcome to episode VIII of the PEC Podcast!
Prehospital ECGs. Do they make a difference? Can they speed up time to definitive treatment? This months podcast delves into these questions with Dr. Nichole Bosson
and our newest correspondent Dr. Joelle Donofrio.
ALSO! As a result of questions concerning education for LA and ECG roll out, per
"We had a countywide training for the paramedics and MICNs. It is both online and
train-the-trainer format. The nurse educators and prehospital care coordinators come to
the EMS Agency for a live training so that they can answer questions at their agency etc.
We created a separate short on-line training video for physicians to introduce them to the
protocol. We are reaching out to individual SRCs as there are issues and educating
them on the protocol."
Also special thanks to Mat Goebel for helping Dr. Donofrio with her podcast!
