The Verdict Is In

JEMS S. Wood & B. Podsiadlo

Congratulations to Armstrong Ambulance’s Director of Clinical Integration, Ben Podsiadlo and Armstrong Clinical Educator, Steve Wood for being published in JEMS – Journal of Emergency Medical Services. Ben and Steve wrote a rebuttal letter in response to the Pragmatic Airway Reconstruction Trial (PART), published “ETI vs. SGA: The Verdict Is In” which is a review of the findings of their study comparing a supraglottic airway, specifically the King airway, with endotracheal intubation.

Here’s to a future of enhancing education and providing more opportunities to practice and develop skills maintenance.
