CRITICAL LEVELS - THE PODCAST -
“Critical Levels” is a new 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.
On June 8, 2021, the Honorable Justice Arrell gave his judgement finding two Hamilton Paramedics guilty of failing to provide the necessities of life in relation to a call they attended on December 2nd, 2017. This is potentially a precedent setting case not only for paramedics but for the greater health care community. On todays’ episode we analyze the case and what it means with former paramedic and current lawyer Chris Robertson.
