My name is Ben Meadley, and I’m an intensive care flight paramedic working for Ambulance Victoria. I’ve been an ambo for a little over 15 years, and have worked in both rural and urban EMS environments in New South Wales and Victoria, Australia. I currently work on an ambulance helicopter in regional Victoria, as well as plenty of time on “the road”. I am also a sessional lecturer in undergraduate and postgraduate prehospital programs at Monash University.
The aim of this site is to give you, the prehospital professional, exposure to up-to-date happenings in emergency medicine and prehospital care.
