    Patient care: What’s your ’perspective’?

    This episode of the Inside EMS Podcast is sponsored by FirstNet, Built with AT&T. FirstNet uses the latest technology to keep your lines of communication and data open – to help you respond faster, smarter and safer.

    In this episode, host Chris Cebollero interviews co-host Kelly Grayson about his new book, "Perspectives, Volume I: An Emergency Medicine and Public Safety Anthology." The concept for the book came from a successful excercise on Grayson's blog, in which he would create a fictional patient and elicit the perspective of an ER nurse and a police officer to understand how they see the same patient. 

    For his book, Grayson expanded on the concept, and invited a number of public safety and public health professionals to collaborate on the work. Our co-hosts discuss how readers should approach the book, where the idea came from and what a lay person can glean from the pages.

    DNR ambiguity: Making the right call on scene

    This episode of the Inside EMS Podcast is sponsored by FirstNet, Built with AT&T. FirstNet uses the latest technology to keep your lines of communication and data open – to help you respond faster, smarter and safer.

    In this episode of Inside EMS, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss a recent news article out of Florida regarding a Fla. patient's Do Not Resuscitate order. The family of the patient alleges EMS providers violated the legal wishes of Celeste Salanitri, 81, who suffered from end-stage Parksinson's disease, after she was treated for a fall at an assisted living facility. 

    "There is so much ambiguity when it comes to DNR's that EMS providers need to be up on how to handle when nursing staff or family members say there is a DNR in place," Cebollero says. 

    Our co-hosts end the show by describing a series of DNR scenarios to consider how they would respond in the moment.

Please, I’m begging you, equalize the volume

Decent content but they don't equalize the volume between different segments so it’ll blow out your speakers. Yet another case of Big Ambulance trying to ensure a steady stream of patients, who will stop these villains?

Old Dog New Tricks

35 years of EMS EMT-A/B/I/D/CC/P, instructor, District Training Coordinator/Helicopter Medic. I just found this podcast and have been binge listening to it. I crack a smile every time Kelly has to either talk Chris off the cliff or just push him off. I also worked as a dispatcher for NC Statewide Transportation Operations Center so very glad to see them talk about Transportation Information Management (TIMs) Great show everyone can pull so many ideas from this show and EMS Shop. They highlight what everyone is doing around the world..I only do enough to keep my certifications now because I need money so I now am a Biomedical Technician but try to help everyone involved in EMS as I became disabled in the field on the job of EMS.

EMT skills

Great talk on expanding EMT skills for them to run calls for the service and community. I agree that they can be trained to use advance airway devices and run their own ambulance.
