Dennis and Kevin Worth talk about combat anesthesia. The podcast discusses the four pillars of anesthesia, which are…
amnesia, analgesia, akinesia, and autonomic stability. The focus is on the importance of autonomic stability in combat situations. The best medication for amnesia in a downrange environment is Midazolam or Versed, and ketamine is a potent analgesic. The podcast also covers the MAP (mean arterial pressure) and how to maintain it in trauma patients. Finally, the podcast discusses various scenarios that require different types of sedation or analgesia, including the administration of fentanyl or calcium.
