This week we return to the topic of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing with Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. Bryan Canterbury. Dr. Canterbury was one of many medical professionals, but only a few ER docs, who ran to the finish line on that sunny April day to treat the hundreds of victims injured after 2 bombs exploded during Boston’s hallowed race. With his typical candor & humility, Dr. Canterbury remarks on the differences between working traumas in the street versus the natural habitat of the ER physician, a well stocked & staffed hospital.

 

Note:  I would like to correct the name mentioned in the podcast. The man who held the femoral artery of Jeff Bauman is name Carlos Arredondo, a Costa Rican-American and Gold Star Father. Carlos’ son, Marine LCpl Alexander Arredondo, was KIA in Iraq on 25 August 2004. Since then Carlos has worked as a peace activist as well as an advocate for Veteran mental health. He was at the 2013 Boston Marathon finish line to cheer on runners from National Guard Tough Ruck, one of whom was running for his son.  I encourage you to find out more about Carlos Arrendondo

It’s our first on-location recording! This week we venture out to Inova Loudoun Hospital in Leesburg, Virginia to hear what happens when critical care medicine meets classical musicianship.

This week we stay on the topic of medicine, but the species is a bit different as we delve into veterinary medicine with UK equine vet Naomi Mellor. While some of the terms & concepts may be similar, Naomi proves the old adage, “a whole different animal” really rings true when treating horses compared to humans.

Storytelling is a powerful part of human culture as clearly evidenced by the power of podcasts particularly this one, which focuses on medical anecdotes to both entertain & inform. However, the emotional response of anecdotes can be used to spread misinformation & create harm when used to contradict evidence based medicine by anti-vaccine or so called “alternative medicine” advocates.

Lucky for us, Dr. Jonathon Howard, a neurologist & psychiatrist, who has written a book on critical thinking & cognitive biases in medicine joins the podcast this week to explain why are brains like stories & how that can be used against us.
