EP.5 Managing Cardiac Arrest as a Paramedic Student

Welcome to the paramedics Guide to the Galaxy! Today I have an interview with a fellow Paramedic student,  Patrick Guziewicz. (@guziewiczp)

Patrick's take home points:

  • EMS is a team sport, be confident, stay humble.
  • Bystander CPR is ESSENTIAL to increase OHCA survival.
  • The paramedic running the code needs to run the code. Not the IV, IO, Drug box, Or monitor.
  • Early Chest compressions and Defib are the priority. 

Nicholas' take home points:

  • Some of the Greatest Atrocities in history were made "Just following orders"
