Podcast 141: Borderland with JR Pickett

By Paul July 20, 2023 0 comments

Welcome back to the PFC Podcast with Dennis and guest JR, discussing their work on the southern US border. Dr. JR Pickett, the Chief Deputy Medical Director for Austin, Texas, describes the rugged, rural regions they cover, far from major cities. The area experiences scorching temperatures, and many migrants pass through, making it crucial to provide medical assistance. They encounter accidents, venomous snakes, and challenging terrain.

The team uses various vehicles and equipment, including ATVs and a walking blood donor program, to navigate and provide care. Training and collaboration are essential since most agents aren’t dedicated medics. BLS skills and effective planning play a vital role in delivering care.
