On this episode, we have filmmaker Ted Setla on the show this week to share his experiences work with American Medical Response (AMR) to document their ambulance strike teams during the recent spate of hurricanes to strike the continental U.S. Ted was deployed with his camera to both Houston for Hurricane Harvey and to Florida for Hurricane Irma. He also looked at the after incident stress management from the Las Vegas October 1 shooting incident.
We examine Ted’s work providing a way to record responder’s and their feelings so that they can get some of this out of their system. It also provides a useful record to help teach future generations of responders how to prepare for the feelings they will experience while treating patients in mass casualty incidents.
Joining Ted on this episode were hosts, Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, Sam Bradley, Kyle Nelson, and Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group.
