In this Trauma Healing Learning, we welcome back Dr. Mohamed Elnahal from Episode 10 of Blink of an Eye. His insights on doctor-patient connection worked wonders for our understanding of how the medical system can improve its support of SCI patients and families. Listen in for how you, as an advocate for your loved one, can take a step in the right direction of improving this communication in the ICU. Join Louise and Dr. Elnahal in discussing the complexities of how the spinal cord injury and cardiac spheres intersect. When might a spinal cord injured patient need a pacemaker and why? You’ll even hear an original, authentic unedited recording from Dr. Elnahal’s meeting with Louise in 2015, bedside to Archer. Listen in for a genuine peek into the sounds of Archer’s healing sanctuary, as well as the chaos of the ICU soundscape and the spa noise attempts to neutralize the environment. Louise and Dr. Elnahal also explore how the modern-day COVID-19 pandemic severely affects patient care and relationships in the current hospital setting. Discover ways around the roadblocks to healing and find the path to patient support.
