I have an experience I would like to share with you. This is something that will change the way you teach pathophysiology.
I recently recorded a podcast as part of our 7 Things EMS series. While interviewing Joe Mistovich—a good friend and occasional competitor in the book biz—I realized that the podcast we recorded isn’t just for students. I think you will find benefit from it as an educator. It will change the depth and relevance of the Pathophysiology you teach.
The audio discusses why patients present as they do in hypoxia, hypoglycemia, and hypoperfusion, and how and when cyanosis develops. The podcast explains how pain presents in various conditions and locations and details why altered mental status is so important.
Students must have a foundation in pathophysiology to succeed. It is necessary both for the NREMT and the field. It affects oxygen administration decisions, helps identify criticality, and provides a basis for understanding that will serve your EMT students well when they choose to go to AEMT and paramedic.
This podcast was so in-depth and chock full of information that we had to make it into 2 episodes! Both episodes are now available on all common podcast streaming services. We even have a CE version available at LC-Ready. I encourage you to listen and share it with your students at all levels.
Thank you for all you do. Thank you for the trust you put in Limmer Education. Keep in touch.
