    Paramedic Continuing Education

    So with the FOAMfrat, the online $12.99 a month one says that it only gives 25 hours but also says that it meets the NR and is 60? Am I missing something?

    Paramedic Continuing Education

    I would love to say I have one, but I don’t have a training officer and I’m moving from being an in-hospital medic into kind of a dual role of both... I’m thinking about just recertifying by just taking the test because this is such a huge mess.

    Paramedic Continuing Education

    Does anyone understand how the assignment to different course topics works? I am a little confused on how we know what component and course topic to assign different classes to. I was thinking about using the JBLearning platform as I can import CAPCE credit classes in, but things like a PALS...

    IO Infiltration?

    I thought about going out the back after the initial placement but if that were the case, I wouldn’t have gotten good blood and marrow return. Additionally, the RSI medications would not have worked because the needle would have been outside of the medullary cavity or in the periosteum. Am I...

    IO Infiltration?

    Hey all you experienced medics out there... Just got off of work in a busy emergency department here in Omaha. At the end of shift we had a code 3 unresponsive party, no gag reflex, with snoring respirations. We opted to intubate but after 2 IV attempts, I placed an IO. She was a bigger lady...

    NTG and Morphine I’m Inferior AMIs

    Hey everyone, I know that it took me a long time to get back to all of you and I apologize. All of you had amazing responses and I appreciate your input. A lot of you brought up that administration of NTG should be taken out of the protocols for analgesia in an AMI whether with RVI or not. Most...

    NTG and Morphine I’m Inferior AMIs

    Alright guys, I know this has been covered before but I want to restart the conversation. With recent studies, (I will try to find them and link them) I want to kind of talk with the more experienced medics and leave an in-depth discussion for those in medic and learning. During school, it was...

    Continuing Education?

    Hey, Everyone! Just wondering if anyone happened to know of the best in-class continuing education classes? Trauma, airway.... It doesn’t matter what the topic is but what companies and courses are they through!? Thanks!

    Airway Labs

    Hey guys! Thanks for the responses, everyone. I would absolutely love to get into an OR and do some intubations and shadow an anesthesiologist. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to do that in my area. They don't even really allow FD medics that run 911 and since I am on IFT, I am more of a...

    Airway Labs

    Hey Everyone! Has anyone done an invasive airway lab? As it has been outlined plenty of times on this forum, EMS education is extremely deficient in the US. Since I haven't intubated since the middle of paramedic school, I think it would be beneficial to maybe get some hands-on practice with a...

    Event EMS

    I’m located in Omaha, NE from Las Vegas. I know that CrowdRX runs the medical staff for Burning Man and I may think about applying with them. I have an interview tomorrow for Joffe Emergency Services over the phone to work for the Warrior Dash up here.

    HALL AMBULANCE

    VentMonkey, thanks for the information! When you get to 24s or 48s, is it a set rotating schedule or is it when you want and can work? Understandably they want career minded individuals. That’s a good question about CSUB and without going into my who life history, I am looking at medical...
