"Heavy lies the crown" is a common misquote of "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown" from Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 2. It refers to the responsibility and insecurity of governing an entire kingdom. Likewise, "heavy lies the helmet" refers to the responsibility we face as critical care transport providers working in an autonomous and often unpredictable environment. Our minds are eased with education that better prepares us for any situation that we may encounter. That is exactly what Heavy Lies the Helmet provides.

Founded by two brothers, Heavy Lies the Helmet is comprised of industry leaders still actively working in the fields of pre-hospital critical care and search and rescue. Through an IA MED partnership, we are a CAPCE and California Board of Nursing accredited podcast and blog that openly discusses the world of resuscitation and aviation. We highlight caring for critically ill and injured patients in addition to the controversies surrounding their management. Though tailored to the transport environment, our information is applicable to any intra-hospital discipline working in an emergency and/or intensive care setting. We utilize the most recent evidence to provide applicable and accurate education that can assist in improving individual clinical practice and overall program operations.

We offer continuing education units to any listener and/or reader interested in obtaining credit for their progressive learning experience. Please visit heavyliesthehelmet.com/ce for more information.
