  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 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!   Dr. Nichole Bosson (Below) is the Assistant Medical Director for Los Angeles County  EMS Agency, the Medical Director for the J Michael Criley Paramedic Training  Institute, and the Associate EMS Fellowship Director for Harbor-UCLA Medical  Center.  She was recently the Director of EMS and Disaster Preparedness for  Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.                                               Dr. Joelle Donofrio (Below) is currently an EMS fellow at UCSD and a Pediatric Emergency Medicine attending at Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego.  She is  also a fellow of the California EMSC Technical Advising Committee and sits on  the advisory counsel for the EMSC National Resource Center.     Once again thanks for listening and have a safe and happy holidays!   Right click here to download.   Phil Moy MD
