PHARM Podcast 005- Interview with Dr. Sean Keogh

G’day folks.

Today on the podcast I interview Dr Sean Keogh, an emergency and retrieval physician from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He is I believe the first prehospital doctor to ever have a reported case of a successful prehospital thoracotomy in which the patient survived in 1993.

Check out these references

From the French Refdoc
From Trauma.org

Sean currently is the Director of Clinical Governance at Careflight Group Queensland. He will tell us about his extensive trauma training experience in South Africa and rural Asia as well as in London. Listen to his accounts of retrieval and telemedicine, as he talks rural doctors through procedures like surgical airway or even a thoracotomy!

As always we discuss a hypothetical retrieval case and hear how Sean deals with it!

Sean is obsessed with emergency airway management as much as I am. He has attended the Difficult Airway course in Las Vegas three times and written and updated his services airway SOPs in the last 12 months.

Pour yourself a beverage, sit back and enjoy the interview!

PHARM Podcast 003 – Interview with Dr. Karel Habig

Minh interviews Dr. Karel Habig, Medical Director, Greater Sydney Area HEMS, New South Wales, Australia

Hi folks

Tonight I interview Dr Karel Habig, Emergency Physician and Retrieval Specialist , in Sydney. He is a brother in arms with Dr Cliff Reid, of Resus.Me podcast and blog site. They both work for the Greater Sydney Area HEMS , a prehospital and retrieval medicine service doing up to 3000 missions per annum. This blogsite gives some useful information about their work and training.

They also have an awesome YouTube channel!

On the interview we discuss a recent annual training trip that Karel, Cliff and other retrieval consultants from their service do and this year they went to South Africa to learn from emergency doctors and trauma surgeons at some of the busiest units in the world! Tune in and hear some great tips described like balloon tamponade using a Foley catheter for vascular injuries.

I also pose a retrieval case to Karel on a patient with acute STEMI and prehospital thrombolysis, requiring aeromedical retrieval but with a low haemoglobin of 8g/dL.

Check out this useful reference article on aeromedical considerations of critically ill patients!
