    Pediatric CPAP/BiPAP in the Pre-Hospital World

    Pediatric CPAP/BiPAP in the pre-hospital world.  Should we be doing it?  if not, why?  MedFlight Radio brings back Chris Newsome (Nationwide Children's Transport Medic) and Rob Glaze (Current MedFlight Medic and Retired from Westerville Fire Department ) to discuss this very topic.
