I Had This Esophageal Varices Patient

In this episode, the PragMedics and Scooby sit down and discuss a proper disaster patient, one with an upper GI bleed (esophageal varices). We discuss a patient from the ICU perspective with lessons learned for paramedics.  These patients are challenging to manage, and it’s a great conversation that will help a paramedic manage this type of patient.  Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out our “I had this patient” Facebook group! 

As always, we want to thank our supporters: Priority 1 Air Rescue, Red Clover Coffee, Black Wolf Helicopters, SayAgainOver, and finally Pelican, but also and more importantly to our listeners!

Check out the First Responders Children’s Foundation and Do It For Drew as well and donate to a couple of great causes!
