Dr. David Jaslow on what you don't know about disaster response
Dr. David Jaslow—aka the "Master of Disaster"—has been on the ground in some of the worst disasters in US history, including September 11 and Hurricane Katrina. Now he brings his decades of expertise in emergency and disaster medicine to running the emergency department at Lower Bucks Hospital, just outside Philadelphia.
In this episode, Andy and Dr. Jaslow discuss how emergency medicine got its start in the US, the challenges of providing medical care to disaster victims, and the public's perception of disaster response (in other words, why disaster specialists laud FEMA's response to Hurricane Katrina despite widespread criticism).
