49 – You Can’t Spell REBOA without the ER – Endovascular Resuscitation of the Trauma Patient – Zaf Qasim
Manage episode 218809943 series 103412
In this episode, Zack Shinar interviews Zaf Qasim about the recent controversies with ACEP and ACS about who can do REBOA. Zaf is one of the world's experts on REBOA and he's an ER doc! Zaf works at the University of Pennsylvania, trained in London
as well as Shock Trauma in Baltimore and teaches at Reanimate. When you come to the essence of this episode, the question is what is the emergency physician's role in the trauma resuscitation? Both Zaf and Zack agree; we need to be the resuscitationist in the trauma suite. We need to manage the airway and then quickly take over the arterial and venous access, interpret the transduced pressures, manage the massive transfusion protocol and be ready to insert the REBOA catheter while the trauma surgeon is involved with the left chest, the source of bleeding and where the next destination for this patient will be.
