Episode VIII: Rescue Task Force Updates & REMS with Bryan
We jump into some West Coast RTF topics with FF/Medic/Tactical Medic Bryan Howell - discussing the complexity of this response asset and dive into TTP / SOP development, training, and some the ridiculousness that surrounds this topic nationwide…AND we also dig into the REMS (Rapid Extraction Module Support) programs out on the West Coast (RIP Notorious B.I.G.). REMS is basically a bad-ass, complex, and evolving program in which 4-man teams become a QRF for injured line wildland firefighters. The team is required to make access through austere vertical terrain, assess & stabilize the casualty, package and extract, and finally evacuate or handoff for transport to a MTF… anyway,, we discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Episode VI: Operational Hacking- Science- Part 2
Okay...finally -Here is Part 2 of our conversation with Ricky and the Calcium crusade... We hit on more aspects concerning the Ground force - Aeromedical interaction, Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) and Environmental -Based Medicine...and Experienced-Based Medicine
Episode V: Operational Hacking: Science- Part 1
Hacking Science with Ricky Ditzel, Esq. III- Lead R&D guy with SOM-C, the editor for the Journal of High Threat and Austere Medicine, and, flight medic in the Army.
In Part one of this two part discussion, Sean apologizes to Ricky and they discuss the first time they hugged at SOMSA. Ricky spits out disruptive smart guy stuff like a lyrical genius…things like; calcium chloride, calcium gluconate, calcium neutral safe places, and something called DIC…which turned out to be totally different than what Ryan and Sean were thinking. Clotting cascade physiology, fibrinogen and fibrin, and, some info about his working group- which has smart guys with very odd initials and credentials after their names…Also...some protocol creations, a few specific dumb ass comments that others have made in opposition to Ricky's calcium crusade, a little flight medic insight with triage and hand-offs, but, most importantly…we discuss 3 other things, that when combined, will make you appear 33% better looking to 42% of the members of the opposite sex…FACT(ish).
Operational Hacking: Episode IV: Training- Part 2
"Tracking Heffalumps and Woozles"
A continuation of the training talk with Sean, Ryan, JJ, and David.....they discuss the skills you need to pay the bills (aka mastering the basics), Slim Shady as he relates to the Commando Medic, The importance of training like a Tigger, not like an Eeyore....getting lost in Sean's luscious beard and much, much, more. Valiant effort made to stay on topic gentleman, keep up the good work.
Operational Hacking: Episode III: Training- Part I
"Don't Shock Me Bro"
We continue our “operational hacking” series here as we talk shop again with JJ. This time, Sean, Ryan, JJ, and David sit down and mostly discuss training. Yes, they also manage to talk about; donut shops, Compton hats and losing Sean, dog legs, a GPS named Judy, pink bunny and ocelot suits, Pollo Loco, Galileo, the Coriolis effect, Han Solo, training fairies, who may be buried under the Palo Alto Mac store....and oddly enough, staying on task. You'll definitely laugh, you may cry, you'll probably learn a few things, and you could want to shower? Then sit back and relax, part II is on the way.
