War Zone Medic Mission in Iraq, Part 1

Humanitarian missions as a war-zone medic in areas of conflict is our topic this week. Our guest this week is Daniel Taylor, a paramedic from New York’s Hudson Valley. He has come on the show in the past and returns this week to talk about his recent trip to Iraq on a humanitarian mission. The first part of the mission was in the Kurdistan region.

While in Kurdistan, Daniel helped train Peshmerga soldiers in trauma care. He focused on how to treat hemorrhage with tourniquets and wound packing both in rear areas and in active war zones. There were challenges with educating the troops because of the need to use local interpreters who did not have medical backgrounds.

During the Peshmerga training, Daniel and his team stumbled upon an infectious disease situation in one patient that turned into an outbreak in a community. This required the team to procure local stores of antibiotics to treat the outbreak.

On the show with Daniel were hosts Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley. Also on the show were Kyle Nelson, our disaster weather expert, and Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group.

Check out this episode and if you have questions, leave them here or on our new disaster podcast Facebook Group.
