Treat Or Not To Treat? It May Make Things Worse..

In today’s episode we are joined with Gerard (NYS AEMTP) and Emily (NYS EMT, ER-RN) as well as EMT Basic Intern Kelsey, in the first ever Mid-Month Podcast episode. We review a very thought provoking call that presented with Altered Mental Status and Lethargy. We tie in the previous podcast episode “When To Pull The Trigger” as a decision had to be made whether to treat or not treat this patient. Many times in the EMS field we are faced with choices that could benefit or harm our patients. 

Podcast episodes can now be heard TWICE per month. Every 1st and 15th of the month we upload a brand new call review or open discussion. If you have not yet subscribed to the podcast to get first exclusive access click this link and fill out the subscription form at the bottom of the page.
