Hawk-Ventures-LogoMore talk on wilderness medicine and correlations with disaster response medicine on this week’s show. Disaster Podcast hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley were joined by show regulars Dr. Joe Holley and paramedic Jim Logan from Paragon Medical Education Group to chat with Dr. Seth Hawkins a DMAT and Wilderness EMS doc from North Carolina. This is part two of this two-part interview segment episode. Here’s Part one!

Wilderness medicine is focused on care in austere wilderness settings where there are no nearby resources for care. Dr. Hawkins runs Hawk Ventures which supports a wide range of Wilderness EMS programs, including the flagship Carolina Wilderness EMS Externship program. Each program is personally run by Dr. Seth Collings Hawkins. Hawkins is one of only a few physicians in the United States to be double-boarded in both Emergency Medicine and EMS, and is the first physician ever named a Master Fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine.

expo-disaster-special-needs-screenshotThis special episode of the Disaster Podcast with Sam Bradley features special guests paramedic and mother of a special needs child, Elsie Kusel, paramedic and physician Dr. James Brasiel and paramedic and co-founder of Paragon Medical Education Group, Jim Logan.  All are experts in the handling of special needs patients and talk with Sam about the handling of these fragile patients in times of disaster or major incidents.

How we handle patients with special needs is often dictated by our available resources but for the individual EMS provider or disaster responder, these patients need careful consideration with how to approach them and understanding of each one’s individual needs. Listen to the team of experts Sam has pulled together to hear how they recommend managing this special patient population.

Hungry children in refugee camp, distribution of humanitarian foodThis episode features the return of DMAT team member Wendy Hess, an ER nurse and friend of host Sam Bradley. Hosts Sam and Jamie Davis, the Podmedic are also joined in this episode by Dr. Joe Holley and paramedic Jim Logan from Paragon Medical Education Group. Wendy came on the show to chat with the team about her work with a medical aid group called Santa Cruz to El Salvador.

Santa Cruz to El Salvador (http://www.santacruzalsalvador.org) seeks to enhance and enrich the lives of our sisters and brothers in the Cuidadela de Guillermo Ungo, El Salvador as well as our Monterey Bay participants through relationship-building delegations, Prayer Partner connections and fund raising. Santa Cruz al Salvador is comprised of Lutheran and Presbyterian churches in the Monterey Bay area.

Medical aid teams like this one go to many remote areas of the world without definitive healthcare and provides them clinics to treat illnesses and injuries and attempt to improve the health and wellness of communities there. There are many of these NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations) that operate out there like Doctors Without Borders and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). You can visit these organizations websites and others like them to find out how you can donate money, resources and time to help out communities around the world in need of improved medical care.

Contact Wendy for more information on her trips by email here.
