I've had TWO cardiac arrest fully resusciated and talking to me in the truck in as many weeks.
Guy on Thursday arrested in tbe checkout line at the grocery store. Bystander CPR and 3 AED shocks had him in sinus tach when I got there. Amazing. He was asking me what happened and asked me to call...

I'm so sick of the stigma that accompanies any discussion of mental health in EMS.
it's an embarrassment to our profession that when I try to have an honest discussion about a provider that I'm worried about I'm told "they'll get over it" and I...
I keep hearing that there's no shortage of EMS providers, but I'm curious how many of your agencies are fully staffed. In central PA, a paramedic (who's not a Effup) can have their pick of jobs and with some negotiating skill, get a very decent wage.

Does anyone here use a "CPR Report Card' to provide feedback to the providers after an arrest? I've seen a few examples, but can't seem to find them now!
I'm looking for a standardized format for reporting following each arrest.
How often is your agency in the news? We send a press release out almost every week. We are on TV several times a month and the TV stations now know that that can always come to us for any thing that is first responder related. This week they did a whole piece on our new Zoll X series monitors...
As some of you know, I've recently accepted a leadership/education position at SVEMS. We are in the process of doing some great things here, both in education and in the field. We're looking to be the game changers in Central PA EMS. If you'd like to join the family, we'd love to talk to you...
Does your service mandate video laryngoscopy? If so, how did you make the change? What drove the change? How did the medics react? Did your first pass success rate improve? What VL are you using?
Can you tell I want to know everything?
