Nurses Week! with The Rapid Response RN: Discussing Cardiac Events in Sports after Damar Hamlin (Sarah Lorenzini, RN)

IT'S NURSES WEEEEEEK! What better way to celebrate than to CROSS-POST an episode from one of our FAVORITE NURSES? Sarah Lorenzini, host of the Rapid Response RN podcast, graciously had Jeremy as a guest after NFL player Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest and collapse on the field in January of 2023 during Monday Night Football.

In this amazing episode of Rapid Response RN, Sarah and Jeremy discuss what it takes to be prepared for a catastrophic cardiac event OUTSIDE of the hospital. How can we feel empowered to step in and step up in a critical time of need to increase someone's chances of survival? Let's learn from the PROS (our critical care nurses and team docs) to help our fellow humans.

Check out this fantastic, high-yield episode, friends!

Julie Bruene

Dr. Julie (Julia if we’re being formal, Julia Rose if she’s in trouble) Bruene is a sports medicine physician at Midwest Orthopaedics at RUSH, a renowned, nationally-ranked orthopedic practice in Chicago. She serves as a team physician for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, and DePaul University. Aside from her obvious interests in sports and medicine, she is a true crime obsessive and is a total sucker for rescued cats. She lives in Chicago with her husband and partner-in-crime, Adam, and with several of the aforementioned rescued cats. We don’t need to get into specifics about the exact number here. She likes when people are kind to one another and when animals dress up like other animals. Rock over London, rock on Chicago.
