    What do you look for in a partner?

    Not being a cocky bastige. I prefer working as we call it here, for an unknown reason, limited MIC (1 EMT / 1 Paramedic). An excellent EMT-B is better that a hald assed Paramedic that is a tool bag. I have 2 basic partners and both are incredibly compentent. One is a little cocky but a good...

    In Philly, you have a bunch of transport companies and in the surrounding counties, there are 911 jobs that hire new EMT's. The Philly Fire Dept. only hires Paramedics for the squad / Fire Service medics and the firefighters are EMT-B's. Hope this helps Sam. P.M. me if needed. I used to work...

    Sanford Brown Medic Program SE-PA

    I know personally the director and class coordinator and have friends that teach there, I do not. I have heard bad things about them but have also precepted very good students from there. With that being said, how long have you been and EMT-B? Get some experience would be my opinion. 325.

    Lasix is under Medcomm orders only now and will prolly be taken off the S.O.P.'s. We use lots of NTG and ACE inhibitors (enalapril) and that works. I have seen medics that are older than me (and I was taught this way years ago) that have given 200mg of Lasix and it turned out to be pneumonia...

    How important is experience in EMS?

    Good question. I have 13 years in P.A. as a medic. I have seen 20+ year medics that were total toolbags when it came to medicine and have also seen 2 year medics that I would let treat my mom. We have all seen really good students / medic interns that had book knowledge and were lost on the...

    CPAP vs intubation for CHF

    At least in P.A....First we don't go straight to Lasix. We start serial NTG's with 1 off the bat followed by 3 if the pressure is still over 180 systolic. Thats besides the point. Also in P.A., we use Etomidate (not at the 2 squads I work because the M.D. does not like the profile by itself /...
