    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.

    Physicians Evaluate Employees Online, at Home and at Work

    in Health

    If employers want to maintain or reduce healthcare spending, one of the best places to start is with employees’ use of hospitals. The long-time mantra in addressing health care costs is to keep employees out of emergency rooms, avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and, if an employee or their dependent is admitted, get them out of the hospital as quickly as possible. 


    A growing number of employers and insurance companies are using different strategies to direct employees to the best care, including concierge medicine and virtual-physician-diagnostic services for minor medical conditions.


    Join the CoHealth community as we talk with Alan Roga (StatDoctors) and Natalie Hodge (PersonalMedicinePlus) -- two physicians who are changing how and where physicians meet patients, including via virtual, computer-based visits, mobile apps and concierge services.

    A Review of Todays Trucking News

    in News

    We will be reviewing the stories affecting trucking today and hoping some drivers will join us for a discussion regarding how enforcement of the sleep apnea rules are affecting them and what they are doing to comply with the physician's recommendation.  Are there more 3 month med cards being issued?  Are the physicians over stepping their authority? Did FMCSA not give enough guidance to physicians?  Have you tried to be proactive and address any issues prior to going for your DOT physical?  What's working, what's not?  Have you searched the web for miracles?  Why is it that many drivers have bad eating habits, lack of time to exercise or just plain can't pass physicals?  Drivers?  Companies?  DOT? Physicians? Truck Stops?  I believe all share the responsibility.  Let's discuss it?


    DISCLAIMER:  We do not pretend to have all the answers nor know all the regulations, rules and rights.  Remember states have the right to adopt all or some of the Federal Regulations so you must know your state laws as well as the Federal laws.  We offer an arena to discuss both our and your experiences and best practices.  Please keep in mind our goal is to improve the safety of our highways and byways across our great nation.  We humbly defer to the regulatory agencies both state and federal to help all of us be the safest we can be.


    We encourage everyone to contact the appropriate regulatory agency directly, however if you are not comfortable doing that please contact the Safety Mentor.
