    Remember to treat the patient, not the monitor

    Remember to treat the patient, not the monitor

    On this episode of Inside EMS, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss the adage of treating the patient, not the monitor. While the numbers are a vital piece of the puzzle, it's important to look at the information in context of what's going on with the patient as a whole, the duo reminds listeners.

    During the discussion, Grayson touches on the concept of defensive medicine, which happens when a provider or ER physician does myriad tests to see what will "stick" regarding a patient's symptoms. Grayson also offers tips for providers who are working to use monitor numbers as a starting point to treating the whole patient.

    Dan Phillips urges first responders to take care of themselves, too

    Dan Phillips urges first responders to take care of themselves, too

    On this episode of Inside EMS, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson are joined by Dan Phillips, national director of Responder Health, who speaks with the co-hosts about first responder mental health and how to make a difference. 

    As most are aware, 2020 was an immensely difficult year for many people, particularly first responders, who were on the frontlines and exposed to the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. From risking exposure to the disease to responding to crisis situations exacerbated by nearly a year of isolation, first responders are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and trauma. And, unfortunately, many don’t have the tools to deal with these extreme emotions in a healthy way.

    “After 28 years as a first responder, and as someone who battled PTSD, the one thing I believe that all first responders have in common is that they are more focused on helping others rather than taking care of themselves,” Phillips said. “In the midst of this pandemic, our first responders need to be making sure that they are taking care of themselves and the other first responders around them. If they aren’t, they cannot effectively help those they are serving.”

    Phillips says intervention from a colleague led to him finally seeking treatment after experiencing severe PTSD stemming from his response as a first responder to the Pentagon after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Now, Phillips hopes to pay it forward and serve as a mentor for others, as his colleague did for him.
