    Ibuprofen contraindications

    I have tried to search why Ibuprofen is contraindicated for fevers in infants < 4 months (or 6 depending on which site you look at) on this site and the interwebs, but have had no luck. I even dug out my old Nancy Caroline but couldn't seem to find anything. Can someone help me?

    Acadian starts around $9 in Beaumont (I think). Don't know who's better to work for. Working in a hospital will pay better.

    Why Are 12-Leads Not Required For School Physicals

    Yes, it is. That is the epitome of emotional bias. Very interesting read. Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that OP is either a politician, or directly involved financially in pushing these ECG's? Glad to see OP also seemed to learn the difference between there/their/they're, and...

    EMT as a career

    EMS in Houston is a job, not a career IMO. Do to an oversaturated market, the starting pay rate might actually be decreasing. I'm still relatively new to the field (7 month IFT), but the outlook is grim. A lot of the 911 services are having to start doing transfers to pay the bills, but are...

    ___________________ Just started as a basic, and don't have a clue what this means. Little help please? Are you saying the scene itself was unsafe(in which case I understand), or are you saying that the PT him/herself could become dangerous due to a lack of BSI?
