PHARM Podcast 148 South African Paramedic saves life with emergency cricothyroidotomy
— Kayleigh Lachenicht (@FECCEPIC) August 1, 2016
Hi folks, I got sent an interview from South Africa between a paramedic educator and one of their graduates, who performed a life saving surgical airway solo in a prehospital setting. Its worth a listen as we dont often hear such accounts first hand. The paramedic who did the cric is Dane Koekemoer (@d_koekemoer), a Critical Care Assistant who qualified from Netcare Education Faculty of Emergency and Critical Care in Midrand Johannesburg last year December as a Critical Care Assistant.
