Month: February 2022
We return this week to cover a topic we hit every year at this time. Ski Patroler and meteorologist Kyle Nelson joins us to talk about the behind-the-scenes event planning for the Winter XGames in Aspen, Colorado. Kyle is part of the medical response and planning team on the hill where both the athletes and spectators are watched for injuries or illness.
We add another clinical topic to our podcast episode this week. Dr. Joe Holley joins us to talk about smoke inhalation injuries. He points out that these sorts of injuries increase during the winter months as more people use combustion sources to heat their homes and apartments.
As responders are deployed for disasters near and far, how do their families react and manage the departure of their loved ones? We dig into the effects of disasters on the families of first responders. What does family preparedness for deployment look like and what is the family's role in helping manage the aftermath of stress on responders.
