Tara's kids...doing all the same things other kids do!!!
A while back now, I got an email from Weingart stating that he had received correspondence form a Canadian paramedic by the name of Tara Anema. Tara really wanted to get the word out about a particular pediatric patient population that she had seen mismanaged by all levels of emergency provider in all types of situations. Why all the hubbub about this particular group…well the condition is hemophilia and her own two sons are effected. After speaking to Tara I knew her passion and message was perfect for the show. I have also brought in our hemophilia expert from the University of Kentucky, Dr. Vlad Radulescu to answer all your burning questions about how we SHOULD be taking care of these children.
As a bonus this month, stay tuned to the end of the show when Dr. Marianne Gausche-Hill and I do a little update on Pediatric Readiness and be sure to check out her most recent publication below!!
