SORT BY Relevancy
We focus a lot on response in EMS. Our response allong with our training can effect patient outcomes. But what about when response is the focus without equal attention to training. Getting there is only part of what we do, yet is often the one marker that is looked at when it comes to a patients outcome.
This week we talk about EMS response, call types, training and how they reflect on patient outcomes.
Does the 8-10 minute response have a positive impact or is it better training and equipment?
Join us for this discussion.
Timothy Ray Brown is “The Berlin patient”, the man who once had HIV. Although American, he was living in Berlin and receiving treatment for HIV when he was diagnosed in 2006 with leukemia. He was treated by Dr Gero Huetter who had a cutting-edge idea of treating his leukemia with a stem cell transplant from a person who was born immune to HIV infection. The rest is medical history. Timothy is recognized by international researchers as the first and only documented case of a person being cured of HIV. Now, almost 20 years after he was diagnosed, the 45-year-old is, essentially, cured. He now lives in San Francisco and since he decided to out himself as the person who had been known only as “The Berlin Patient”, he has become a bit of a celebrity at various AIDS functions. His most important goal is to assist in making his cure provide an impetus for creating a universal cure for HIV which will be accessible and available to everyone regardless of their economic means or background. He believes that this is one of the most important challenges to medical scientists of our time. He is counting on your support in assisting the achievement of this goal.

Cassia Hill started as a dialysis assistant in 2007 and in 2008
was promoted to a dialysis technician. Cassia's number one priority is

Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient. An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.
In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!
When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.
In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.
But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.
Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.

Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?

Our guest is Dr. Uchenna Onyeachom, Director of Endovascular Researh at Heart and Vascular Outcomes Research Institute in Beverly, Massachusetts, http://www.hvori.org We will be talking with him about the Venous Patient Outcome Registry. We will talk about the kinds of conditions, including peripheral venous disease and varicose veins, about which information is being collected, and why patients and physicians might want to participate.
The Venous Patient Outcome Registry (VPOR), the first-ever patient-centered online registry, was developed to assess patient outcomes and quality of life for the various treatments of venous disease by standardizing the collection and analysis of clinical information, patient trends and practice patterns by specialists nationwide. Since its launch , VPOR is already recruiting sites and patients from all regions of the United States.
VPOR aims to provide clear, impartial evidence on the effectiveness, benefits and harms of available treatment options for both patients and physicians. Align the needs of patients with the performance of physicians, VPOR will help to translate research findings into information that is useful to clinicians, policy makers, payers and regulators for better patient care. http://www.venouspatientregistry.org
The Heart & Vascular Outcomes Research Institute (HVORI) is a non-profit research organization dedicated to the study of heart, vascular and related disorders. HVORI’s mission is to provide excellence in patient-focused outcome research, thereby improving quality of care, advancing clinical outcomes, reducing healthcare costs and driving innovation.
Monday night, November 11, meet Jeff. Learn about how he spoke up and his actions of being informed and getting involved changed the course of his care and maybe even saved his life!
