In this episode, Steve, Dan, and Holly are joined by Dr. Ramsey Selbak, EMTprep’s Physician Advisor. Dr. Ramsey discusses his background in emergency medicine as well as his experience and relationship with field providers. The team then delves into an age old rut into which many EMS providers fall – chasing numbers. What do we mean by this?  Trying to correct specific lab values or vitals without taking into account the entirety patient. What do they look like? Why might this vital or value be skewed? How long did it take the patient to get to where they are now? And, of course, is the patient stable as they sit? Dr. Ramsey provides a couple brief examples of times where seemingly critical patients remain stable with limited intervention in the ED, which implores the crew to discuss the role of EMS providers in the field, and re-evaluate their responsibility to “fix” or “reverse” patients with advanced disease processes.

In this episode, Steve, Dan, and Holly discuss calls that are not “black and white,” and have forced them to think outside the box. Steve provides Dan and Holly with a case he encountered and has them walk through their decision-making. He then reflects on how he and his crew responded to the scenario. Holly reviews a call she had that presented a variety of challenges and forced her to work in the “gray zone” and defend the clinical decisions she made to her agency and receiving hospital. The team closes by reviewing the importance of critical thinking and its application in the world of emergency medicine.
