Inside EMS Podcast: Evaluating danger, risk during small acts of terrorism
Our co-hosts discuss a scenario about a mall stabbing and how to stop bleeding without getting grossly contaminated
In this Inside EMS Podcast episode, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss what EMS professionals need to know when dealing with pipe bombs and small acts of terrorism.
They pose this question: You are in a mall and a guy has stabbed three people. One person has a gusher of a wound coming from the neck or femoral. How can you stop the bleeding without getting yourself grossly contaminated?
Chris and Kelly also take a seat at the Guest Table and are joined by EMS1 columnist Dan Limmer. Dan shares his experience and opinions on DNR's, the grieving process and what educational standards we need to prepare EMS for dealing with the families of terminally ill patients.
