In this episode we were lucky enough to catch up with Sam Sadek, EM Consultant at The Royal London hospital and HEMS doctor and also Zaf Qasim EM Consultant in Delaware in the United States. Both have been heavily involved in the setup and delivery of REBOA service in their respective posts.
In this podcast they share their experience and expertise on the topic of setting up a REBOA service. A huge thanks to both of them as this is a superb podcast for anybody considering getting involved in REBOA.
