    Anyone using Ultrasound?

    EFast exam, IVC, lung, cardiac assessment, IV line placement, eventually use it for arterial lines

    Anyone using Ultrasound?

    We use the lumify. We love it. Great price of equipment. The only problem is we keep ours in our bag so eventually the wire at the site of the probe gets worn out and wonky creating problems

    MCHD or Acadian (CO to TX)

    Do the paid fire guys ever work shifts on the medic ? Or is it completely separate ? I know they've only recently shifted to paid fire

    @Tigger I believe they just turned the old BK 117 into the EC-145, and now they turned them into the H-145 T2 model. Supposed to be legitness. We still fly the EC-145, great aircraft, we've just put alot of miles on them.

    Airway Management and Intubating without Drugs

    @DesertMedic66 @GMCmedic same here. We've seen it go up in non-critical patients in whom BP isn't a concern. But we've seen a significant decrease in our critical patients

    Predicting a difficult airway is darn near impossible

    Thats not super uncommon in the very rural parts of texas. If there is a physician in the small ER then he probably isnt board certified and it will be known to him that the local medics or flight crews will be more experienced at airways than him. Plus they will end up taking the patient out...
