Not just for ED docs
This podcast is great for anyone doing patient care in the ED. I’m an ED tech and of course I’ll always be working within my scope but this info and the knowledge gained can really help you be a cut above the rest when it comes to anticipating the needs of your patients, nurses, docs and the rest of the support staff. Lord only knows some of the stress taken off of your docs when you have the equipment they need before they even have to ask for it. If you’re planning on going further in your healthcare career it’s a no brainer to listen to this podcast. Thanks for all the info and keep ‘em coming!
Love this podcast
I’m an EMT studying for paramedic, and this podcast has helped me have a more comprehensive grasp on the patient’s journey.
New listener. Im a PA student entering clinical rotations. I have ED for my first rotation and found this podcast while looking for resources to help me prepare. Podcast is fantastic and exactly what I was looking for. Not heavy on the pathophysiology (which is perfect) but a quick review on the clinical and practical approach to patients who present to the ED with this or that chief complaint. I feel much more confident going into my rotation having started this podcast.
