Somewhere between Canada and Iceland, Dr Éric Contant will talk about wilderness, remote and resuscitation medicine. Articles will be reviewed, physiology will be studied, guests will be interviewed and fingers will be frozen.
We will now switch gear and go from the cold subject of avalanches, to the hotness of volcanoes and their hazards. Many of you most likely heard there is a volcanic eruption in Iceland (again) and it is a good time to review the topic of volcano hazards. Enjoy the show.
