High in the mountains of Colorado, a crew of unsuspecting docs stumble upon the EMS scene of a head-on collision after an arduous mountain bike ride. Trauma is a Journey is a four part rural trauma mini series that recounts this tale as this group springs into action to assist the EMS crews dealing with two critical patients. Elizabeth Esty hosts a panel discussion with the key players: Dr. Dylan Luyten, Dr. JP Brewer, Dr. Madison Macht, Dr. Glenda Quan and Jeremiah Grantham as this story unfolds.
The third episode opens up with an ode to ATLS and how important those training protocols really are to real-world applications like the one in this story. The group segues into discussion of the various opinions on the essentials for emergency first aid supplies you should have on hand. Dr. JP Brewer circles back to the role of teamwork and establishing roles in order to accomplish a successful resuscitation and the others chime in based on their experiences.
