Stress Management in the Face of COVID-19 Response and Treatment

We brought back Dan McGuire from CISM Perspectives to talk about stress management for all healthcare professionals in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dan compares the stress seen by EMS, ER, and other hospital staff in major pandemic hot spots around the world to the stresses seen by responders on and after the 9/11 attacks.

We discuss the importance of stress management in the face of recent suicides by EMS, nurses, and physicians surrounding COVID. We also enlist 911 Dispatcher and Meteorologist Kyle Nelson into the discussion to talk about the impacts on that part of the first response community.

Also on the show were Dr. Joe Holley, Meteorologist Becky DePodwin, along with co-hosts Sam Bradley, and Jamie Davis.
