Teaming up on anaphylaxis
Watch as EMS clinicians respond to an allergic reaction at, of all places, an allergy clinic
In this episode of the Reel Emergency Vodcast, EMS clinicians respond to a man having an allergic reaction at an allergy clinic, of all places.
Many EMS clinicians have experience responding to clinics of various kinds; what has been your experience interacting with another healthcare team? This EMS crew immediately recognizes the severity of the reaction, and they treat it accordingly with airway interventions and a variety of medications.
Join Drs. Antevy, Spiro and Piehl who review this case with special guest Zach Dunlap, clinical director at Cypress Creek EMS in Houston, Texas. Also joining is Maia Dorsett, MD, PhD, Prodigy EMS's medical director.
