Our co-hosts discuss the pros and cons of using ultrasound with a podcast listener
In this Inside EMS Podcast episode, co-hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson talk about the week's news, including a World War II veteran that was recently reunited with an ambulance he drove 71 years ago in Germany and a 5-year-old girl who saved her mother after the woman had a seizure while swimming in the family's pool.
At the guest table, Chris and Kelly talk to Dominick Walenczak, an Inside EMS podcast listener, paramedic from Buffalo, N.Y., and also a podcast host for Critmedic.com, about the many new diagnostic tools EMS providers are using aimed at prehospital care. Walenczak breaks down why more EMS providers should embrace the use of ultrasound in the field.
