A Scoop for the Medic Cast

Ive just been out walking my dog and using the opportunity to catch up with my plethora of podcasts that I like to listen to.

This morning was the turn of Jamie Davis’ Medic Cast.

The latest episode has Jamie  and Tom Bouthillet, the ECG and Cardiac Guru himself, and author of Prehospital 12 Lead blog interviewing Dr. Monica Kleinman, incoming Chair of the Emergency Cardiovascular Care committee at the American Heart Association ( about the 2010 AHA Resus Guidelines.

These were published on the same day as our European Guidelines and they pretty much match up. Tom and Jamie ask some great questions including, why the AHA decided not to implement Cardio Cerebral Resuscitiation (i.e. taking the ventilations out as an intial priority).

It just goes to show what the social EMS scene has to offer. How many other shows have you seen or heard on any media format which have been able to discuss this with one of the authors of the guidelines within 12 hours of the publication of the document!

Great Job Jamie.

Go to the Medic Cast website to listen to or download this fantastic interview. It really is a must.


  1. Thanks for the kudos, Mark! I was very excited when the AHA offered to do this interview and I hope that they will extend their experts for our “New Media” audience again in the future. Keep up the good work here at the 999Medic blog.
