on todays episode I chat to Dr Michael Morgan who is a recent graduate of the University of Utah Emergency medicine residency, and worked with Dr Rob Bryant on the edible cric vs pig trachea project. He is one of the residents that helped fine tune Rob’s surgical airway educational strategy- it turns out it was effective!
He just performed his first every surgical airway 60 days after finishing residency, and the case is a great story, as is Mikes mental preparation for the surgical airway. Mike is part way through his global health fellowship and is working on a project involving an educational outreach to Vietnam.

What is PHARM? Its the area of clinical medicine involved with the assessment and stabilisation of acutely ill or injured patients in the prehospital setting, who require transport to definitive care. It requires a wide range of skills and knowledge including emergency medicine, paramedicine, critical care and aeromedicine. The working environments span the entire range of those on our planet and challenges placed on prehospital providers are both demanding, mentally and physically. There is no backup, you are the backup and what you bring with you is all you have. We who work in the area and face these challenges in hostile and austere settings choose to, with the belief that a patient's location should not dictate the level of emergency care they deserve and we can provide. This is the discipline.
