Happy holidays from the PEC podcast crew! We hope
you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and are busy planning for the
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
ALSO! As a result of questions
concerning education for LA and ECG roll out, per Dr. Bosson:
"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!
