    Dispatch 1 - "Sure looks cold out there!" with Dr Sandy MacQuarrie

    The cold is an extreme environment that some health care workers operate in. But when we talk cold, we don’t mean a balmy -3 degrees Celsius. We mean, if you get things wrong, you and your patient are in a lot of trouble. Travel north to Canada in the dead of winter and back in time to join Sandy and the flight team from New Brunswick AirCare on a time critical call when the temperature reads (with wind chill) -36 degrees Celsius. Oh, and the patient has just been born....at 24 weeks gestation.

    Dispatch 6 - "The potential role of ECMO in accidental hypothermia" with Dr Malin Zachau

    In extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), blood is pumped outside of your body to a heart-lung machine that essentially removes carbon dioxide and sends oxygen-filled blood back to tissues in the body. During this public lecture Dr Malin will discuss the potential role of ECMO in accidental hypothermia patients in New Zealand.
