Episode 9: ECMO, what is it and is it coming to your lab?
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO has made a resurgance in popularity and usage across the country. It has become minimized and mobile, removing a lot of barriers that kept it from being used previously. With tons of advantages and a tried and true history of being an effective tool for cardiogenic shock, the newer mobile units are really making a splash at smaller satellite community hospitals. My guest Jason Chan RN and ECMO PRN owner and operator walks us through what ECMO is and why the newer smaller units are making a significant difference in patient lives. If you would like more information about ECMO PRN please feel to reach out them directly at ECMOPRN.com As always, subscribe to the podcast.

Episode 5: Is TCT for me?
The old debate comes around every year, who gets to go to TCT and is it even worth it. In short, YES. TCT is a great place to learn, network and expand your horizons. This week I talk about the elephant in the room TCT is physician focused and we are all to often an after thought. From education credits to availble courses we just simply arnt the bread and butter of TCT. This doesnt mean we can benefit in a huge way. You just have to make the conference work for you, and well adjust your expectations accordingly. Thank you everyone for listening and if you were at TCT this year please hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org

Episode 3: Talking to the boss! How do travel companies operate, really.
This week I sit down with Rebecca Jones, President and CEO of Sharp Medical Staffing. While they are a medical staffing company, they offer a lot more than that. So much so they dont refer to themselves as a staffing company. Rebecca is really taking a different approach to medical staffing. Its her goal to go further than just providing warm bodies when you need them, even though she can do that too. She is more interested in helping solve your staffing problem rather than putting a band aid on it. They offer preceptors, managers, specialized staff as well as a host of other services. As much as the above sounds like a commercial for Sharp, they really are different. So What does all of this mean to you? We get a lesson on what the travel industry is as of now as well as what Rebecca is doing different. I can personally attest to not really understanding the behind the scenes working of what travel companies do. I learned a lot from Rebecca in this interview and I became a fan of her vision a long the way. If your interested in joining her on her mission to do things different and maybe try a different travel company. Please visit them at www.sharpmedicalstaffing.com and please let them know you heard about them on the podcast! Thanks

She has tons of experience and I can personally attest to her skillset.
