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.
On this month’s episode, we discuss acute coronary syndrome (ACS) with Dr. Jesse McLaren
We define ACS, we cover pathophysiology, and some common causes. Importantly we discuss the assessment of this patient population – paying attending to both objective and subjectives signs and symptoms. We spend some time talking about electrocardiograms, and perhaps most importantly, we chat about the management of this patient.
