A podcast produced by medics, for medics. The Modern Medic team brings together clinicians and first responders from all over the world to discuss topics in the tactical medical, austere and complex environments. Topics and episodes include military Special Operations Medicine, Street Medicine and Search & Rescue.
In this episode of The Modern Medic I discuss what accessories and tools I carry when working a shift as an Intensive Care Paramedic.
