How do you know when to call 911 vs. when to handle the emergency yourself? Why is it best to use a land line when calling 911? How can you help EMS workers quickly size up the situation and get the most appropriate treatment? These are a few of the questions Rod Brouhard discusses in today’s show and in his book, Life’s Little Emergencies: A Handbook for Independent Seniors and Their Caregivers.
The interview also discusses decision making about heart attacks and strokes. Mr. Brouhard has more than 20 years of experience as a paramedic with ambulance and fire crews. More recently he has been training EMS and paramedics, and administering training programs. His nitty-gritty experience results in very practical advice.
