  • 5/4/2015 The evolution of Paramedicine and those responsible for its rise

    in Caregiving

    On Monday, May 4 we completed a special live broadcast of Wisconsin EMS Live.  Guests included:  Dr. Eugene Nagel, Randolph Mantooth and Nancy McFarland. 


    The 60 minute program was dedicated to discussing the start of Paramedic systems, those responsible for its rise in the 1960's and 70's, the determination and vision it took, and based on their experiences how they see the industry evolving into Community Paramedicine!


    Eugene Nagel is a retired anesthesiologist. He was an innovative pioneer who served as medical director for the City of Miami Fire Department's rescue operation from 1964 to 1974. During those 10 years, Dr. Nagel developed the first paramedic program utilizing telemetry and voice medical control.  The biophone or “orange box” was a familiar piece of equipment on the TV show EMERENCY!  The TV show’s unit now resides on display at the Smithsonian Institute. 


    Randolph Mantooth is an actor, producer and speaker. Widely known for his role as Paramedic John Gage in the TV series EMERGENCY! -- the show that transformed America's perception and approach to emergency medical care in the 1970s and introduced millions to the word "paramedic" for the first time. Mr. Mantooth is a popular speaker at Fire and EMS events, and an advocate for firefighter health and safety.  His website is www.RandolphMantooth.com.


    Nancy McFarland is a retired LA County Fire Museum board director and Chair of the Pioneers of Paramedicine Committee. Ms. McFarland was instrumental in uniting the four doctors credited with starting the first (fire-based) paramedic programs in the United States in the late 1960s for taped interviews and a Lifetime Achievement Awards Gala in May of 2010.

    4/14/2015 Community Paramedicine and Physicians Advisory Committee

    in Caregiving

    The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.


    The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.  Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright.  All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin.  Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.


    Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas.  An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.  Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.


    At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee.  Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher.  Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.


    As always, the live show offers caller questions.  Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.

    Wisconsin spring football game preview with BadgerBlitz' John Veldhuis

    in Sports

    Who's stood out for the Wisconsin Badgers during spring practice? What are the top positions of concern heading into the spring game and fall camp? Can Joel Stave, Corey Clement and the Badgers' offense find balance, and who's shined for a defense getting sacks and TFLs but no turnovers? We'll ask friend of the show, BadgerBlitz.com's John Veldhuis at 8:20 p.m.


    We'll also discuss the Milwaukee Brewers' poor 2-10 start. They say you can't win the pennant in April, but could most certainly lose it in April -- will this hold true for this year's bunch, as they've dropped their first four series?


    The Milwaukee Bucks are back in the playoffs, but are down 1-0 against the Chicago Bulls in the NBA Playoffs. Can Michael Carter-Williams, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the rest of the Bucks step up and compete with Derrick Rose and the Bulls?

    Wisconsin-Kentucky, The Autopsy. Bobby Gonzalez and Ian O'Connor

    in Basketball

    Yes, Bobby Gonzalez picked Kentucky to go all the way ... but always included the caveat that a lot would have to go wrong for them to lose in this tourney, and a lot would have to go right for someone else to beat them.


    That's exactly what happened last night.


    Kentucky only made three 3-pointers, only shot 10 free throws, got outrebounded by 12 ... but more than anything else, they did not do the things they were known for, the things that got them to 38-0.


    They always played to win in close games, instead of not to lose, except last night they were up 4 with under 5 minutes to go but then got very tentative with their offense, having three shot clock violations and not getting the ball into an unstoppable force, big man Karl Anthony Towns, down the stretch.


    They did not get stops like they always had in the last few minutes, and ultimately Wisconsin did to Kentucky what Kentucky did to everyone else all year ... they closed out the game with all the big shots, big defensive stops and big plays down the stretch.


    Coach Bo Ryan took advantage of matchups and exploited Kentucky with his multi-dimensional and multi-skilled front court of Frank Kaminsky Sam Dekker and Nigel Hayes. All that was up for discussion this morning on Ian O'Connor's radio show on ESPN Radio in New York.
