11 hours ago · Mayo Clinic Radio: The work of paramedics

emergency medical technicians loading patient into ambulanceParamedics provide first-line medical or emergency care for sick and injured people while they are being transported to the hospital for care. They typically operate in teams, with one person serving as an emergency vehicle operator, while the other continues to provide lifesaving emergency care to the patient while en route to a medical facility.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Angela Jarrett, a supervisor with Gold Cross Ambulance, will share what it’s like being a paramedic. Also on the program, Dr. Matthew Ferber, a geneticist at Mayo Clinic, will explain what information can be uncovered by direct-to-consumer genetic testing. And Dr. Pritish Tosh, an infectious diseases expert at Mayo Clinic, will discuss the recent rise in sexually transmitted infections.
