Paramedicís Corner: Ambulance District's medical director retires (http://pulaskicountyweb.com/news.php?viewStory=2172)
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Sept. 29, 2010) ó Before the Sept. 20 board meeting, the Pulaski County Ambulance District board members honored Dr. Barton Warren for his long tenure as the PCAD medical director. Dr. Warren is retiring from the medical director position; however, he remains busy with his practice in Richland at the Central Ozarks Medical Center. Dr. Warren has been very supportive and caring with regards to the paramedics and education development, and we will miss him dearly. During Dr. Warrenís tenure the district continued the progress of remaining state-of-the-art in pre-hospital emergency medical care. Some of the continuous improvements made with his support include new 12-lead monitor/defibrillators with many special components for respiratory assessment and management, new state-of-the-art CPR equipment called the AutoPulse, a machine that performs continuous chest compressions without interruption during a cardiac arrest situation. Good luck, Dr. Warren ó we love you and will miss you. The new medical director for PCAD is Dr. Danelle Richards. Dr. Richards is the emergency room director at St. Johnís Hospital in Lebanon and is board-certified in emergency medicine. A future article will say more about Dr. Richards.
