I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. First up we have a special interview with Christian Adams who gave bystander CPR to a collapsed man she encountered on a jogging trail. She was assisted by the dispatcher in what she should do to continue doing good, high-quality CPR on the man in cardiac arrest.<br> Then we will go back to check out another special segment from EMS World Expo in New Orleans with a look at what it takes to be a Maryland State Police paramedic on their medevac helicopters. I interview a State Trooper about the opportunities available for the right paramedic in their department. Then we look at one of our product picks from EMS World Expo in the final segment.<br> All of these segments this week were recorded thanks to the continuing support and sponsorship of the <a href="http://physio-control.com" target="_blank">Physio-Control corporation</a>.

But that’s exactly what she ended up doing when she encountered a man collapsed on a trail near her home. She credits the help of the 911 dispatcher and telephone CPR assistance with helping to save the man’s life.
