Being A Critical Care Medic | Is CC Training Beneficial?

This episode I talk with Dominick Walenczak who is a Critical Care Paramedic and also runs the CritMedic Podcast.

We talk about the benefits of the advanced training as well as its use in the 911 arena. Honestly I’m a bit on the fence, but Dominick pointed out genuine benefits to the training and it’s application throughout EMS.
