hi folks. Today’s podcast is with Dr Adam Darnobid, EMS physician and former flight doctor at LifeFlight Massachusetts. He shares his experience as a prehospital doctor at the Boston Marathon 2013 and the bombing attack that ensued
Here is Adam in his own words :
Some things to link to:The US EM resident association (EMRA) Has a great magazine; I wrote a piece about the marathon in it:As I was looking on the internet Art Hsieh gave a great summary of the NAEMSP lecture:http://www.ems1.com/bomber/articles/1649473-5-triage-lessons-learned-from-the-Boston-Marathon-BombingIf I had to sum it up;-Preparation is key. The didactic lectures, the drills, the training. It all was useful that day. The low yield, mundane topics for day to day clinical practice saved lives.-By having a large number of prehospital providers operating in the “Hot zone” people were extricated and taken to definitive care rapidly.-Boston Hospitals and EMS showed tremendous flexibility and surge capacity, something that needs to be integrated into our systems.-Tourniquets saved lives.The situation has change, we need to be ready for an ever changing threat environment and still need to care for our primary responsibilities at the same time.
