Interview with EMS Physician, Cliff Reid

I was able to cajole Cliff Reid of the amazing blog, resus.me on to the EMCrit program. Cliff is truly a doc after my own heart as you will hear from the cast.

He is currently an EMS physician and Director of Training at the New South Wales Ambulance Service.

Cliff’s blog, resus.me is an incredible collection of timely articles on emergency medicine, ems, critical care and resuscitation.

Cliff and I discuss prehospital intubations, helicopters for EMS, and upstairs care, outside the walls of the hospital.
