    Upper Extremity Splinting

    I was recently asked how I would splint a broken scapula and clavicle and shoulder. My first thought would to just use the good old sling and swathe method...but are there other ways to do this? Any thoughts? Any web resources with pictures? Thanks!

    Could you let us know how it goes? I know I'll be interested...I'll be moving back home to Boston from Cali at the end of May and Cataldo is one of my top choices.

    Southside Virginia Emergency Crew EMT stops police chase with ambulance - EMT Charged

    We aren't cops. Anyone who interferes with a chase is way out of line. I can bet that his rig was out of service for at least a few hours too. What about the people that he could have been helping while he was dealing with the endless red tape that occurs after a rig collision?

    I definitely cavi my steth, bp cuff after every pt contact. I never thought about my watch though. Now that gets added to the cancer wash!

    Listening To Music While Transporting

    Yeah, I'll also listen up front while transporting. We have rear speakers but I'd never use them unless the PT asked.

    Do u dream EMT??

    I definitely do dream EMS. More so when I was in school, but I still do from time to time. It's always kind of weird though. I had a dream a few months ago that I was suctioning a raccoon. I have no idea what that means.
