JellyBean 003 Ben Meadley

Ben Meadley of PreHospitalPro is a Flight MICA Paramedic with Air Ambulance Victoria in Australia. MICA stands for Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance.

You will be aware of trials he has been involved in. (Just try to keep up with the list he rattles off here out side one of the lectures at SMACC 2013.)

Air Ambulance Victoria has an unusual model for some of its practice.
Primary trauma response by Rotary Wing Air Ambulance includes a single responder Flight MICA Paramedic.
