EMS Medical Directors Chart the Future of EMS at Annual Gathering of Eagles

The Metropolitan Medical Directors Coalition (AKA “Eagles”) 21st Annual Retreat (AKA “Eagle Creek”) was held Wednesday and Thursday, February 27 and 28, at the Dallas Sheraton Hotel under the leadership of Paul Pepe, MD. The closed, invitation-only retreat is attended by 70 medical directors from the most-populated metropolitan EMS systems as well as 18 EMS fellows—33% of the nation’s current EMS fellows. This group oversees EMS for a combined population of over 114 million people in the United States and abroad, with representatives from Canada; Germany; New Zealand; Italy; Amsterdam, The Netherland; Bangkok, Thailand; the United Kingdom and France. In two agenda-packed days, participants chart the future of EMS, discussing major issues such as the problem of opioid overdoses, behavioral health, news media coverage and inaccuracies being inflated or misreported nationwide; as well as areas to address in the future. The Eagles conducted an amazing number of member surveys during 2018, and the group is an important network facilitating the collection of data and information to plan, develop, change and advance EMS practices. Although exact details and discussions are restricted to attendees, JEMS got an inside look at some of the key medical and trauma areas discussed this year. Resuscitation and Head-UP CPR A topic of particular note was the synergistic effects of head-up CPR in conjunction with active compression-decompression CPR (ACD-CPR...

Some readers have recently been asking me about curcumin and Covid-19. Is it good or bad to be taking it if you contract coronavirus?  Can it reduce your risk of contracting Covid-19? (See my post on vitamina D, incidentally.) I don’t know. If I had any answers, believe me, I’d be publishing them…immediately. Well, it just so happens that this afternoon I read a very interesting Science Daily article that may shed some light on this matter. It discusses the case study of ONE myeloma patient, in Wuhan, who was given an immunosuppressant drug, a monoclonal antibody, called tocilizumab. Here’s th...

We report a case of bilateral complete occlusion of the extracranial portions of the internal carotid arteries in a HIV+ve patient who presented with a syncopal episode due to intraventricular haemorrhage. Compensatory blood flow from the posterior cerebral circulation via the circle of Willis resulted in small telangiectatic vessels arising from the posterior cerebral circulation which probably accounted for this rare haemorrhagic complication of an occlusive arteriopathy.
