Episode 154 is Peter Antevy, MD. Peter is a Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician practicing in-hospital emergency medical care at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in South Florida. Peter is Board-certified in pediatrics, emergency medicine and the complex subspecialty of EMS, he is also the founder of Pediatric Emergency Standards, Inc., and he serves as the Medical Director for Davie Fire-Rescue, Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Rescue, Southwest Ranches Fire Rescue and American Ambulance. Peter is perhaps best known for revolutionizing pre-hospital pediatric care by re-setting the boundaries of patient care standards for children and for challenging current conventional wisdom with his pioneering Handtevy Pediatric Standard Program and videos. Of significant note, in 2017, he was awarded the prestigious Ron J. Anderson Memorial Award in Dallas, TX, the international public health service accolade bestowed for his far-reaching public health contributions in emergency medical care, particularly for his efforts to improve outcomes for critically ill and injured children. At the same time, Peter remains a grounded, in-the-trenches EMS medical director as exemplified by his recent involvement in on-scene patient care at the Parkland, Florida high school shooting incident and, in turn, his connected follow-up of patients, families, and rescuers. Peter, as you will hear during our talk, does not take “no” for an answer. We discuss the reason why he chose Pediatrics as a specialty and how he became involved in EMS, which is a great story. We touch briefly his role in the Parkland event and how the crews are doing today. In EMS a pediatric call usually sends chills up our spines and Peter sets out to answer why this occurs and provides a solution. Peter is an extraordinary person and I believe you will feel the same way after this podcast.
