Friday Morning Zone, Kids, Bullying and CRMC on STEMI

Dr. John Lucas, CEO of Cheyenne Regional Medical Center

Today on The Morning Zone:

7:07AM MDT: Kids-At-Risk series-co-hosts John Frentheway and Renee’ Hansen join Davre Chaffin to discuss the article that appeared in Thursday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle that shows Wyoming high school students report higher rates of substance use, relationship violence, bullying and suicide attempts than the national average. But long-term trends on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and Prevention do show improvement in areas like alcohol and tobacco use. “When we looked through the data honestly, there was some good news and some where we have a tremendous amount of work ahead of us,” said Jerry Zellars with the state Department of Education. “The bottom line is: Any instance of these risky behaviors is detrimental to the kids.”

8:07AM MDT: Bullying Hurts founder, Marvin Nash joins Dave along with special guest, Charles Orchard who says he wants to do everything in his power to help stop bullying. In the past 10 years he has learned a lot about how to teach kids not to be a target, which personality types of children attract bullies and which personality types tend to be bullies.

9:07AM MDT: Dr. John Lucas, CEO of Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is back with Dave to talk about their protocol to recognize and treat a STEMI. (STEMI stands for ST elevation myocardial infarction—which is a certain kind of heart attack.) All heart attacks are high priority, but STEMI patients need to get to the catheterization (cath) lab ASAP. A STEMI can be recognized on an EKG—the ST portion of the EKG will be elevated. A STEMI alert will be issued at Cheyenne Regional when a patient in the hospital or being transported to the hospital has been identified as having a STEMI. The patient will be seen by a cardiologist ASAP and will be sent to the cath lab for treatment. This is a very basic description of our STEMI alert and protocol.
