SaferCare Texas Podcast Episode 8 “Managing Psychological Stress During an Emergency”

How do you respond to emergencies? Perhaps you are hopeful that somebody else will intervene? Some acute events require prompt actions when lives are at stake, yet naturally, we “fight or flight.” In my 23 years of healthcare experience, I’ve never responded to a code blue without psychological stress. Dr. Jeff Beeson has served many emergency roles: Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Paramedic(EMT-P), Registered Nurse(RN), and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine(DO). He now serves as an Emergency Physician responding to disasters. Listen to our next episode as Dr. Beeson describes how to manage psychological stress during emergencies.
