Episode 71: What The Actual, Sedgwick?
Ed and Dan are the hosts for our latest "What The Actual..." episode, where we take a look at an EMS train wreck and try to learn from it...or at least try to figure out what the heck happened.
This time, we travel to Sedgwick County, Kansas, where a prehospital attempt at palliative care goes way off the rails, resulting in everyone involved being sanctioned...except the one you'd think.
Episode 70: Pediatric Cardiac Arrest and Improving Outcomes with Dr Peter Antevy
Ed and Dan sit down with Dr. Peter Antevy and talk about how we can do better with pediatric arrests. Dr. Antevy’s programs in Florida have dramatically improved their pediatric survival from cardiac arrest, by focusing on the basics, staying on scene to resuscitate before moving to the hospital, and by engaging parents with WHY we are doing what we do on scene.
Episode 69: The Problem with Media and EMS

Episode 68: Transgender Awareness with Taylor Sprecher and Matt Streger
The transgender population is a part of your patient population, and we all need to know how to assess and communicate therapeutically with our trans patients.

Did you know that almost one in FOUR trans people avoid seeking out health care because of their fear of how they’ll be treated? Or that trans teens have a significantly higher rate of suicide attempts? Do you know how to address your trans patients’ needs?
