    Paramedic Continuing Education

    Does anyone understand how the assignment to different course topics works? I am a little confused on how we know what component and course topic to assign different classes to. I was thinking about using the JBLearning platform as I can import CAPCE credit classes in, but things like a PALS...

    Needle Decompression

    Hey guys.... There seems to be a huge argument between some doctors and paramedics in my area. The docs seem to all agree that when medics do a needle decompression, if there is blood return, it is assumed to be a tension hemo-pneumothorax we DO NOT pull the catheter.
