    Aeromedical Crashes/Near Miss Events

    Sadly, in the past few months I have found myself on the forum posting of crashes that seem to be monthly or even weekly. Again today, a LifeMed prop plane (a King Air) crashed into the water shortly after takeoff in rural Alaska. The crew were rescued and transported ot a clinic. Their...

    Aeromedical Crashes/Near Miss Events

    Due to the nature of the work and the sad truth that these crashes are far too common, combined with related threads that are often spread out among the news, employment, lounge, and HEMS/AMT forums, I have created this thread for all HEMS/AMT adverse events. A single point for discussions...

    Systematic Review of Prehospital Airway Management

    Sounds about on par with my experiences. HEMS is a small world but mostly the same everywhere it seems.

    The Gun Thread

Pushups to exertion then shoot, buddy carry 100 yards then shoot, etc. Shooting from various positions?... kneeing, cornering, on your back, secondary draw, non-dominant hand firing? Mag reloads? Clearing malfunctions? Go to...

    The Gun Thread

    The sad part is in CA you'll probably be arrested and/or sued by the family. Jokes. I'll never go back to CA.

    2020. What are your goals?

    All great goals. I especially like the non resolution life goals, such as becoming a better horseman and paying it forward as @cruiseforever stated. I hope each of you achieve those desires, and that the hard work pays off.

    Pride-Ego-Humble-Patient Centered Care

    I have always been an outgoing guy. I'm a people person. Lucky for me, medicine is not a medical business, nor is EMS a transport business... Rather, they are both facets of being in the people business. I have always enjoyed developing rapport with patients, and as other have stated you stand...

    Sounds like he knows it is an uphill battle to regain the public trust, and he is doing just that. He will be scrutinized for some time. Good luck @JRod92, I hope your past is in the past. You won't get another shot.

    HEMS crash on X-Mas. Sick of posting this news.

    Perhaps, but they wouldn't be flying if the company had not accepted the flight - the company shoulders the blame for these crashes. I understand there are more dynamics at play here, but I do not care. Perhaps my shutting them down comment is a knee-jerk reaction, but that seems like what needs...
