Can PTSD be Mitigated?

Host: Larry Kaskel, MD

Guest: Capt. Mimi Tompkins

When disaster strikes the human body responds. Is there something we can do, at the scene, to delay or prevent the onset of PTSD? Host Dr. Larry Kaskel interviews Captain Mimi Tompkins, co-founder of the Air Line Pilot Association's (ALPA) Critical Incident Response Program, to discuss what physicians need to understand about the implications that a traumatic event has on the physical and psychological being of victims involved.
