CRITICAL LEVELS - THE PODCAST -
“Critical Levels” is a podcast dedicated to having critical conversations in paramedicine created for paramedics, by paramedics, with a Canadian and local bias.
The opinions and discussion within the podcast are meant as educational material for paramedics, and it is not meant to establish a standard of care – please do not deviate from your local medical directives.
We hope to release monthly episodes, but we are in this together – please reach out with ideas for guests and topics.
In addition to the podcast, which will be availiable across all podcast platforms, this website serves as a central location for episode summaries and resources.
Pain is a condition that we often see in the prehospital world, yet for a variety of reasons, we’re bad at treating it.
On today’s episode with pain expert Dr. Samina Ali, we go through what pain is, pain assessment, barriers to providing analgesia, and then discuss how we actually treat pain, using both non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic interventions
