Description

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Environmental Emergencies. Regardless of field or specialty, physicians should be familiar with how the environment affects our patients.  This year alone, we have seen catastrophic flooding in Louisiana and Hurricane Matthew caused a storm surge contributing to the deaths of 1027 people.  According to the NOAA, over the last 20 years, the United States averaged 51 annual lightning strike fatalities, placing it in the second position, just behind floods for deadly weather. This session will focus on Environmental Emergencies with a special look at Weather Related Emergencies.
