EMS on AIR

n this episode, we sit down with three of our key docs to briefly continue the discussion from the last episode and highlight the importance of transporting patients to the ED, as we normally would, because our EDs can handle the patient load and maintain the level of safety necessary.  Then, we get into a deeper discussion and Q&A regarding cardiac arrest care during the COVID pandemic.  You all know Dr. McGraw by this point, but today you’ll get to know Dr. Tressa Gardner, the OCMCA PSRO Chair and Vice President, as well as Dr. Rahul Mehta, who serves as the Med Control Physicians Committee Chair. 

 The Oakland County Medical Control Authority (OCMCA) has produced this podcast series in response to the concerns of our communities regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). It provides context, direction and guidance to EMS agencies and their personnel regarding the current status of the virus, what EMS should be prepared for and where to get the most reliable information.
