In this episode of the Disaster Podcast we look at the clinical issue of altitude illness. To cover this we have Dr. Joe Holley and mountain rescue and ski patrol specialist, Kyle Nelson. We look at the various signs and symptoms, potential for long term effects, treatments and more.
Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group is featured in today's episode. He talks about his recent trip to the NAEMSP (National Association of EMS Physicians) conference in southern California. During the conference they focused on building more understanding between prehospital and hospital medical professionals. What do people in the hospital need to know about how first responders do their jobs and manage disaster situations.

Becky talks about the recent wildfire in Colorado that devastated multiple communities and destroyed over 1,000 homes. Dan looks at the multiple winter storms that swept across the country and ended up stranding thousands of motorists on a major highway for over 24 hours.
