This week: Burnout, prehospital blood transfusions, more

Traumatic injuries are a leading cause of death for Americans. Many of those who suffer a traumatic injury may die because they bleed to death before medical help arrives.

On this week's "HealthLink on Air," Dr. Jordan Holliday talks about how to control bleeding and prehospital use of blood transfusions. He’s an assistant professor of emergency medicine at Upstate University Hospital, which is central New York’s only Level 1 Trauma Center.

Also on the show, Dr. Kaushal Nanavati talks about burnout and stress and how to tell when you need a break. He is Upstate's assistant dean of wellness and the medical director of integrative therapy.

Pharmacists Eric Balotin and Emily Adamy explain compounding and other specialty services -- plus how to choose a pharmacy. And, Dr. Jason Wallen, medical director of the Thoracic Oncology Program, tells who qualifies for lung cancer screening.
