Why EMS Dispatchers and Parents Fail Pediatric CPR

AUDIO4

This week on the podcast I interviewed Dr. Peter Antevy of Handtevy.com Pediatric Emergency Standards. This was a great session where Peter discussed:

  • Why dispatchers have a hard time rapidly providing CPR instructions for children
  • The power of reviewing all Pediatric (and adult) cardiac arrest audio tapes at your EMS agency
  • Why our brains are wired to become anxious during a pediatric call and how to overcome it.
    • System 1 & System 2 thinking

This episode is sure to shed some light on dealing with pediatrics in the field and how we can do better.

Check out Peters website at Handtevy.com. Great videos on some important pediatric skills and assessments.

Take a listen to this weeks podcast as Jim, Josh and Dave discuss the sudden bankruptcy of Transcare in NYC, how it took many by surprise including it’s employees and the FDNY.
