The world of podcasting has exploded in popularity in recent years. This medium is being used in education as well as in the public sector to share ideas, news, and stories. This paper reviews the research behind podcast success as a news form and in the educational sector and the implications of these findings for the future. Podcast listeners tend to listen to podcasts for entertainment and, notably, to diversify their time while completing other tasks. New ways to directly stream media from portable devices and advances in the internet have helped bolster the popularity of this media form. Podcasting proved to be successful in higher education as students tended to perform better when given access to podcasts. However, they were only successful when using podcasts as classroom adjuncts. This implies that educational podcasts must be produced differently than ones intended for the public. By reviewing the neuroscience behind language, emotion and memory, it was found that narrative formats that also evoked emotions had a positive ability in enhancing the listeners learning and memory. Keeping this in mind, the developed podcast aimed to bridge educational material to the general public by utilizing narrative as a vessel in which to deliver complex information about medicine, science and neuroscience. The accessibility and virtually non-existent barriers to the podcasting world offer a breadth of knowledge and opinions that have numerous factors of social influence. The impact of podcasting on the modern world deserves more research in sociology and psychology as it continues to grow in popularity.

Age distribution in caller descriptions of seizure-like symptoms in 9-1-1 out-of-hospital cardiac arrest calls

Description

Given the high prevalence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), the low survival rate, the high morbidity rate, and the significant cost to both the patient and the system, it is imperative that we address any and all factors that contribute

Given the high prevalence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), the low survival rate, the high morbidity rate, and the significant cost to both the patient and the system, it is imperative that we address any and all factors that contribute to recognition of a OHCA case, any barriers that prevent chest compressions, and improve medical care to treat OHCA events in order to increase survival rate, decrease morbidity, and lessen the economical burden of cardiac arrest events. Additionally, understanding the relationship between seizures and OHCA can help medical professionals, including Neurologists and other doctors, to explain to the public when one should call into EMS regarding a seizure-like event in the event of a possible OHCA. This would help to address and alleviate the result of this major public health concern.
