[audio:07_ShockScenarios.mp3] (47:35) This week Ron confesses to making his wife an EMS widow already but at least he got out of doing P90X. Hear the story about how half of Ron’s team got killed during his extraction day scenarios. His scenarios included sucking chest wounds, ejected infants, and belligerent drunk drivers distracting Ron. Kelly also tells us a lot about various kinds of shock including one that makes people faint at the toilet.
We answer two listener questions: “Does the Trendelenburg position help hypotensive patients?” from Vince DiGiulio and “What malpractice insurance would an EMT need?” from Dan Pelzel.
Since we finished talking about Kelly’s book last week we talk about his post “Why y’all looking at me like I’m the douchebag?”
During the gear section Kelly answers “What gear do you carry on the ambulance that you don’t use in the hospital?”
