2020 EMS LLSA Review with Dr. Casey Patrick

Every other year board certified EMS physicians must take an open book quiz over 20-25 papers felt by the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) to be something all EMS physicians should know. Dr. Jarvis and Dr. Casey Patrick (@cpatrick_89) from Montgomery County Health District EMS gave a lecture reviewing the 2020 ABEM EMS LLSA articles at the recent meeting of the Texas Chapter of NAEMSP. We got together right after our lecture to record this podcast going over these articles. Join us from the Cavalier Room at the Historic Menger Hotel (@mengerhotel) in downtown San Antonio, literally next door to the Alamo.
