    Has she ever been there? My wife swore she would never agree to live where we now live. Then she saw the area in person, and it jumped to the top of her list.

    I lived in a state that a)does not require front license plates and b)does not require license plates on non-commercial trailers. In the process of moving to my current location I was pulling a 25' gooseneck trailer loaded with farm equipment when I was flashed by a speed camera (shoots both...

    Prospective EMT Seeking Advice

    And in real life at any company I've worked at, everyone judges new hires based on their performance, not some silly bit of tribal lore that holds that you can't be a good medic if you weren't an EMT for XX years first. You may not care about that, but it is what it is....

    What are some things that that are difficult about being an EMT that an invention can make easier?

    You could improve EMS by inventing a website that will make it easier for EMT students to get answers to their homework questions. Wait a minute.... ;)

    Fluid in the lungs

    Not sure what you're asking here. In what used to be called 'dry drowning' (Experts in the field now only recognize/use the term drowning - it's a process, not an outcome) the major finding was that the lungs were dry; asphyxiation was caused by the larynx spasming and closing off the airway.

    I don't know Handsome Robb's medical director so sorry, no. ;)

    Confirmed STEMI to PCI-center or closest community hospital?

    Perhaps he has read studies that indicate otherwise, thus his statement that there's conflicting evidence. Wouldn't be the first time, and certainly won't be the last.....

    I've found this site to be an excellent reflection of the various types who inhabit virtually every station. You have the clueless but well meaning newbies (you know - the ones that will turn out to be excellent EMTs and Paramedics but don't yet have the experience), the newbies who should be in...

    Fair enough. But did he have a gag reflex? Trismus? Some other issue that would prevent you from simply performing an intubation?

    B to P, timeline??

    No. I already had (have) an advanced degree, so I took the Admin core courses as electives but graduated with the Paramedicine A.S. instead of the B.S.

    Do you carry your own liability insurance??? Well, you should.

    Come to think of it - what other company even offers E&O insurance for EMTs and Paramedics?

    Do you carry your own liability insurance??? Well, you should.

    Now that you mention it, I have no financial interest in HPSO, either.

    Do you carry your own liability insurance??? Well, you should.

    If it's a choice between saving their *** or yours, virtually every service known to man will throw you under the bus. That's why it's important that you carry your own errors and omissions (malpractice) insurance. Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO) is a good place to start if...
