On this special follow-up episode, we have David McPartland, an EMS Captain at Berkley Fire Department. He and a colleague, Captain Linda Buell from Oakland Fire Department, participated in the planning of the FEMA USAR training we covered recently in a double episode with Dr. Joe Holley and Memphis paramedic Patrick McDevitt.
In this very timely episode of the Disaster Podcast, we take a look at the extreme technical rescue involved in the recent Thailand cave rescue. As we rejoice that all the boys and their coach were rescued, it is time to talk about the operational aspects of what it took to pull off this rescue.
This week we look at Wilderness EMS Pharmacology. Nancy Pietroski is our guest this evening for the podcast along with Dr. Seth Hawkins rejoining us for this special featured segment from the Wilderness EMS Textbook. Nancy was the primary author for the textbook's chapter on Wilderness EMS pharmacology.
