    NREMT Practice Quiz Resource Thread

    This is an old post, but I thought I'd comment on it anyway. I tried the Knightlite Software demo version of the program. I found numerous grammatical errors in the questions, incorrectly formatted answers, and correct answers scored as incorrect. Perhaps it is a problem with the Mac OS X...

    WHat was the BEST thing you ever said to a patient?

    First on scene with an anguished Alzheimer's disease PT. She's angry, yelling at everyone, yelling at me to get out of her house, screaming that nobody listens to her. I went up to her and kneeled on the floor where she had thrown herself and told her in a calm voice that I understood that...

    Yeh, but they're mostly vollies, and you know what they say about vollies. :^ (That was sarcasm for those that are sarcasm impaired. )

    If you can stick out your first winter, most people stay as long as they can find a way to feed themselves. It's a different world, with different methods. I'm not on San Juan Island, but I've been there. Aside from it being densely populated, compared to other islands, it's very beautiful.

    Did a patient transfer yesterday. It's a bit different because we're on an island. The ambulance handling the transfer on the mainland side takes the ferry over and we meet them at the landing. We then transfer the patient from their gurney to ours and then onwards to the patient's home while...

    What do you use for a watch/timepiece while on duty?

    I gotta have a sweep second hand. My mind can't count and look at digital seconds. It just kind of locks up.

    I where a goatee year round. Strictly speaking we're (Fire/EMS department) limited to mustaches, but a goatee is overlooked if it doesn't compromise mask seal. Mine is right at the chin edge and I've been through the mask fit testing and passed.

    Best Pants and Boots?

    "unclip" Darn autocorrect. Although there are times I'd like to unclog the radio. :)

    Best Pants and Boots?

    Yeah, I tried that. It works if I remember to remove the radio before sitting down in the rig. Ouch! That and the radio seems to unclog to easily if it gets jostled. I just clip the radio to the belt instead. Must just be me.

    That fits. If the fingers type what the brain is actually thinking, is it a braino instead of a typo?

    Ok, so what you really are asking is, does anybody have a copy of this that they would send me.

    A friend of ours makes great chutneys from scratch. Half a cup of yogurt and a few spoonfuls of chutney and my mouth is in heaven.

    Best Pants and Boots?

    I'll add another vote for the 5.11 pants. I have a pair of the taclites which I really love. Unfortunately I'm going to have to replace them as I seem to have ingrown them. (ingrown as in the opposite of outgrown) I still haven't figured out a use for the strap in the back. Maybe I'm just not...

    EMT vs First Responder

    Immature is a state of mental/emotional growth that may or may not have anything to due with chronological age. I've met 12 year olds that are more mature than some 50 year olds that I know.
