Episode 204 is Dr. Peter Antevy and Captian Adrian Castro. Peter and Adrian join me this week to talk about how EMS can help bring closure to a family of a child who has died. The topic stems from an article and podcast this past January from EMS World. Adrian talks about a call that he and his Palm Beach County Florida crew responded to were Adrian had to make a decision not to resuscitate a child. What he did that day made the world of difference to the parents. Peter explains the rationale and reasons that the decision Adrian made was right. Adrian takes through his thought process and the discussion he had with his crews after the call. Peter also talks about the results of a study that asks what parents want after the death of their child. The answers may surprise you. Peter is a Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician and the Associate Medical Director for several South Florida agencies. Peter is also the creator of the Handtevy APP used by numerous EMS organizations. Adrian is Captain and EMS Supervisor for Palm Beach County Florida.
