Throughout the course of modern medicine, old methods fall as new ones emerge safer, more reliable, better for patient outcomes, and more. Sims et al., Says this: "Resuscitation strategies that decrease the need for transfusions without increasing complications, therefore, would represent a clinically important innovation". Research is deep and results are shared throughout the world. One of the fastest-growing, most industry-related sections of medicine today is that of resuscitation. In this episode of The FlightBridgeED Podcast, the team of Dr. Jeff Jarvis and Mike Verkest from the highly-rated EMS LightHouse Project Podcast dissect the actual study from a statistical analysis standpoint. Is the data as good as it seems? Is it statistically significant? Is there a place for vasopressin administration early in the resuscitation phase within the realm of trauma-induced massive hemorrhage? Join them and find out!

The debate regarding vasopressor use in trauma has been going on for years. FOAMfrat recently released a blog article called. "Levophed Assisted Transfusion". In this article written by Tyler, he lays out his thoughts on this subject and advocates for vasopressor administration in the early resuscitation phase with patients suffering from multi-systems trauma and associated TBI. This podcast is a rebuttal podcast on that article and the current evidence. Are vasopressors in trauma warranted? Is there clinical evidence? I say... Join me in this review and find out my stance!

Diabetic ketoacidosis patients can be very sick and challenging. There are multiple diagnostic indicators used in diagnosing and treating DKA patients. One standard test used is the urine and/or serum ketone test. This can be inaccurate and does not always give the provider the true story when evaluating an improving or declining clinical picture. However, the earliest ketone body formed during fatty acid breakdown is beta-hydroxybutyrate. This isn't a new lab, but a lab that has become more available in the emergency department.

From the authors of David Olvera, FP-C and Daniel Davis M.D. The abstract introduction: Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is associated with a number of complications that can increase morbidity and mortality. Among RSI agents used to blunt awareness of the procedure and produce amnesia, ketamine is unique in its classification as a dissociative agent rather than a CNS depressant. Thus, ketamine should have a lower risk of peri-RSI hypotension due to the minimal sympatholysis as compared to other agents. The main goal of this analysis was to explore the incidence of hypotension and/or cardiopulmonary arrest in patients receiving ketamine versus other agents during RSI. We hypothesized that ketamine would be associated with a lower risk of hemodynamic complications, particularly after adjusting for co-variables reflecting patient acuity. In addition, we anticipated that an increased prevalence of ketamine use would be associated with a decreasing incidence of peri-RSI hypotension and/or arrest. We couldn’t make this podcast without.

In this episode of The FlightBridgED Podcast, Eric and Dave Olvera carve out some time while they are on the road to talk about airway management preparation strategies. Dave has invested many years of his professional career investigating, and researching, among other important projects, how to best optimize intubation success. For as long as I can remember, we have used difficult airway predictors in our field practice, such as LEMON(S), to help prepare for eventualities when placing an endotracheal tube. Dave and his colleagues have determined that those predictors are great, but may not be as applicable to field intubations. With mountains of research at hand the HEAVEN criteria was created, along with best-practice strategies for increasing intubation success in an ever-changing environment.

We have all been trained to make the numbers “normal” for so many years, that it seems so unnatural to leave a number alone. It’s like a terrible itch that we have to scratch, and we feel satisfaction when we finally optimize our patient’s ETCO2 by shoving it right back to 40 mmHg. We take off our work boots, and strap on our favorite running shoes as we run headlong chasing numbers into oblivion. What if we told you that what you are doing could be considered… murder? Maybe the patient is already dead… Join Eric in this episode of The FlightBridgeED Podcast as we learn how to troubleshoot an out of sorts ETCO2 with the 3 P’s of ETCO2.

A spark of twisted smoke and fire ignites into a blazing inferno of charring flame. In the midst of the flickering light, a man suffers in the terrifying grip of heat and hellish pain. The flight crew is tenuously attempting to rip the patient out of death’s mouth and bring him back from the roaring mouth of oblivion. Will he be saved? How will his care be rendered?

Intra-aortic Balloon Pump Counterpulsation therapy is a miracle of modern science that has roots going to the 1960’s. We have come a long way since those days and now, although not a high volume request, flight crews are regularly transporting patients with these lifesaving devices in place. Because this service is not a high volume request, it’s very important to ensure you understand how an IABP works, what the numbers mean, and how you can help and hinder the mechanical function through the use of medications. Did you know that by giving a medication you believe could help stabilize your patient’s blood pressure, you may actually be potentiating the deficit the patient’s weak, and fragile heart is already experiencing? Download and join us as Eric Bauer takes us through the IABP Pearls. If you love what you are hearing from us, please take a moment and review our show in iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, or wherever you get your podcasts. Your review could mean the difference in others like you hearing this information, or not. Be a part of building the future of pre-hospital, critical care, and emergency medicine!

Throughout the course of modern medicine, old methods fall as new ones emerge safer, more reliable, better for patient outcomes, and more. Research is deep and results are shared throughout the world. One of the fastest growing, most industry related sections of medicine today is that of resuscitation.

Medicine is an ever-evolving practice of learning from mistakes, conquering diseases, and seeing to the needs of a unique individual who is desperate for a cure.

We generally never mix these 2 very unique podcasts together, but this podcast is quite possibly the most important podcast we have ever published. A pillar of our practice is under fire and we need everyone's help. Back in the 70's there were a number of laws written regarding the use, and distribution of controlled substances. Unfortunately for us, back in the 70's EMS looked very different. In fact, it was so different that there were never any laws written specifically to direct the function of EMS within those laws. We have been operating for years under a sort of combined mishmash of laws. Recently, the DEA and other members of the US government have been investigating how we operate and you won't believe what they have determined. There is hope for our profession, but it starts with each of us doing our part. Listen to this podcast, contact your representative and encourage them to rally to our side. Failure with this matter means rapid access to lifesaving medication will go away for our patients, and the pre-hospital industry will be turned upside down. Download this podcast, listen, distribute, share, get the word out to your friends, family, co-workers, medical directors, anyone who will listen. We have to band together for the sake of our patients and our profession.
