EMS on AIR

During this episode, we welcome back Dr. Robert Swor, an emergency center physician at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, in Oakland County, Michigan. For over the last 30 years, Dr. Swor has been a staple in the EMS community in Michigan.  Especially when it comes to the latest research involving EMS and cardiac arrest.  Dr. Swor has an intensive background when it comes to EMS cardiac arrest outcome data and that’s why he’s here. 

In part 1 (S2E6), Dr. Swor discussed the data and related controversies regarding airway, breathing and ventilation and EMS management of cardiac arrest patients.  In today’s episode, we get into the details and data of compressions, blood flow and circulation.  Like many complicated things, the more I learn about cardiac arrest care, the more I realize how much I don’t know. 

Data provides us with an objective look at what is supposed to happen vs. what actually happened.  Sometimes, looking at the data from an objective perspective can reveal controversy regarding the “best” treatment options for cardiac arrest patients.  Bottom line, what we expect regarding how things work or how well they work isn’t always truth.  In this two-part discussion, we discuss many of the controversies that find their way into the discussions of EMS provides and give you with hard facts, as their currently known.
