Jamie Todd is a Pre-Hospital Care Consultant for numerous industry sectors. He was in the first group of paramedics in the United Kingdom to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Pre-Hospital Care.
His advice when it comes to airway management is to always know the basics, and have them mastered to your very best ability. “In fact we call them ‘essentials’ rather than ‘basics’ as they will get you out of trouble almost every time,” he says. Prior to his career in Emergency Medicine, Jamie trained as a science teacher and worked in wilderness skills instruction. His favorite part of the job is the moment when he can see everything click for students.
Jamie has combined his EMS and wilderness skills in interesting ways. He has taken journalists around Mongolia for three months, and worked a ski race to the magnetic North Pole.
