Nuclear Radiological Injury Patient Management

nuclear injury emergency disasterDr. Joe Holley joins us for a clinical episode this week. We will look at the triage, management, and protection needed for patients in nuclear emergencies. Dr. Joe references training resources from FEMA and the CDC for clinicians.

Radiological Emergency Preparedness

Radiation Emergencies from the CDC

This topic came up as a result of a talk recently with Dr. Kasia Hampton on the show. Doctors, nurses, and others in Ukraine are increasingly worried about nuclear weapons use in the war with Russia. They asked Kasia for specific training resources on nuclear weapons and the patients they might see from such a disaster.

This episode is hosted by Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
