Today we have the pleasure of talking to Dr. Phil Nawrocki and Dr. Matt Poremba of Alleghany LifeFlight in western Pennsylvania. Dr. Nawrocki is the lead author on a recently released study on the use of push dose epinephrine with their flight team. We get a chance to discusses what they found during the study, why they chose epinephrine and how they encourage their crews to employ it push dose Epi.
Additionally get a chance to discussed LifeFlight’s use of whole blood as a follow up to Dr. Poremba’s #CampECHO talk which was recently released here on the Rotor Wash Podcast (http://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/id/9741833).
