In this episode, we pull back the curtain a bit on a well known educator, podcaster, and flight medic, Eric Bauer. He is the founder and CEO of a critical care education company, FlightBridgeEd. I’m a listener of his podcast, have attended one of his courses and have had the honor to form a friendship with him over the last year. We discuss critical care topics like acid-base balance, intubation, ventilators and EKGs. We also discuss leadership topics like mentoring. I even get some marriage advice out of him. Listen in as I pick the brain of the man you want to know if you have any interest in becoming a flight medic or a better ground medic.
