Association of Field Performance and Cognitive Knowledge: Episode 131

In this episode of the EMSEduCast we talk with Dr. Jon Studnek about EMS research. We specifically discuss research he has helped conduct related to cardiac arrest, airway management, and EMS education. We focus in on his recent publication, The Association Between Emergency Medical Services Field Performance Assessed by High-fidelity Simulation and the Cognitive Knowledge of Practicing Paramedics.
