    Caught early, SPO2 started heading down about 2 hours later and there was an increase in Troponin I. Interesting was the early onset of chest band tightness and "muscular discomfort" between shoulder blades that could be changed with movement/resp.

    What is your service doing to attract applicants?

    Well, for the fun job, we pay people to ski, they get to throw bombs, and we're a first in, primarily trauma agency, but it is still getting competitive. Local ambulance companies are in to the $20/hour+ with up to 6k bonuses. It's getting crazy out there...

    COVID VACCINE - The Megathread

    Joining the USAR as a 68w; Worth it?

    Community Paramedic - Certified

    I would add that most military medics train to treat 18-40 year old physically fit trauma patients. The addition is that the medics on the line are very familiar with basic maintenance. For example, I was speaking to some local healthcare recruiters about what our medics could offer their...

    Should Tactical Medics be armed?

    There is a much larger difference between PJs and medevac, firstly that the one is medevac and the other isn't... Now onto the rest, while the medevac helicopter is not armed the crew most definitely is if they are flying in a combat theater. Yes, standing orders were that medevac has an...
