​In this week's Inside EMS podcast, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss how emergency medical personnel need to shift their thinking in terms of tactical EMS in light of a recent high school stabbing in Pennsylvania. 

They also talk about airway management in the clinical issue segment of the podcast and their thoughts on medics intubating patients in the field. 

"We've gotten so far away from what this was really meant to do," Chris said. "We don't spend enough time training it, growing that skill and I think that we allow our ego to get in the way."

Chris and Kelly interview Kyle Norris, public information officer with the Code Green Campaign, in their guest table segment about how to assist responders that suffer from PTSD or depression.
