    the 100% directionless thread

    On my working days it's not unusual to be dozing off on the recliners at 8:30. If I'm not on a call that is.

    Dumbest thing heard on the radio

    Medic#: Dispatch do you have a call back number for this call? Dispatch: I'll try calling them back. Few minutes later... Dispatch: Medic # your patient is coming to the door. Medic#: Too late my partner's going through the window. Dispatch: That might startle her.

    I can't stand being a paramedic.

    These things are all part of the job, from the partners who text and drive to having 3 cardiac arrests with 0 saves in one shift you deal with it, talk to your partner if she blows up on you like that then she's obviously unprofessional and shouldn't be given respect or the time of day, I'd talk...

    15 lead ecg

    I'll find the EKGs that were presented to us in the class. where Lead II showed a narrow rhythm and v1 shows a wide Rhythm. It's not about your ability to differentiate but about the EKG picking up the changes earlier

    15 lead ecg

    15 lead ecg

    DNR - NO Artificial Ventilation and the use of a BVM?

    By that logic though would you call a hypoglycemic shock patient who's received D50 a resuscitated patient? Would you withhold the D50?

    Ellenville EMT breaks rules to help 4-year-old

    What's the issue? He broke a rule he should've taken the consequence into his decision, he was punished like he should've expected, if he shut up, accepted it and stayed on he probably would've gotten his position back soon enough. His resignation was rash and uncalled for.

    Service Dogs

    So this discussion came up at work the other day. If you have a patient with a trained guide dog, no family friends ore anyone available to care for the dog, what do you do with them? Really would like to hear from anyone who's actually had a patient like this.
