This episode is a departure from the typical FOAMcast clinical content, we will be back with strictly clinical content soon.
In May 2022, I came across a fellow passenger and stranger in cardiac arrest in the airport. A small team of strangers, including an emergency medicine resident, Dr. Jason Tanner, and an emergency department technician, Angel, assembled to treat this passenger. Billy Frolick, a writer and our patient that day, shares his perspective on his case with us.
In addition, we highlight important clinical pearls, notably the importance of continuous chest compressions and early defibrillation. For more on not doing pulse checks, see this podcast: https://foamcast.org/2022/09/04/pulse-checks-during-cardiopulmonary-resuscitation/ .
