The Ten Minute Medic

Hosted ByBill Young

The Ten Minute Medic (TMM) Podcast is for busy EMS students who need information in bite size portions to listen to between calls or while standing in line.  Brought to you by experienced EMS educators, who are busy themselves, we will never waste your time with useless fluff!

Airway and the Trauma Patient

The Ten Minute Medic takes a look at the airway of the trauma patient.  In this session, you will learn:

1.  the role of external and internal respiration.

2.  factors that influence alveolar and cellular gas exchange.

3.  the dangers of hyperventilation of your patient.

Next weeks podcast will continue the discussion of the airway of the trauma patient.  If you would like to have a topic covered, drop me a line at bill.young@eku.edu
