Open Airways: Gut Pinches
Hugh Garner "I was very fortunate that in fact I did not take the word of an untrained police officer. Although he meant well, I did assess the scene and I assessed the patient." Paramedic and EMS Education Coordinator Hugh Garner relates one of his most memorable calls, which illustrates the importance of assessing all patients. Open Airways is a project to capture an oral history for the benefit of the EMS Community. EMS responders share some of the most meaningful cases of their careers, sometimes with humor and always with compassion. We hope that they will help us improve your practice and inspire a new generation of caregivers. This series is produced by FISDAP with the support of EMSResponder.com.
