We get a researcher’s perspective on healthcare from Lyn Yaffe in this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Lyn is a Baby Boomer who works in Maryland, just outside of Washington DC. His company is called EPR Technologies and specializes in emergency preservation and resuscitation (EPR) which is a life-sustaining technique for use when CPR fails. He also served in the Navy and we appreciate his service to our country.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Lyn Yaffe gave us a researcher’s perspective on healthcare:
· EPR is a method of producing rapid cooling to artificially induce hypothermia which temporarily suspends the body’s need for oxygen. This is especially valuable in individuals who have experienced massive blood loss.
· The success rate of CPR is only about 5% in trauma victims. In cases of a cardiac arrest, the success rate is 15% depending on your location and access to services.
· Quality healthcare necessitates regular checkups at the doctor of your choice with the opportunity to be referred to a specialized healthcare center at the discretion of your doctor and at minimal cost.
