    HESI A2 Exam?

    I took a HESI exit exam after finishing medic school. We had an online portion of class from a web site called evolve, which is based off the "Paramedic Practice Today" by Aehlert. The test was kinda meh; I faired well (91%), but I don't believe the questions and structure of said questions...

    Double paramedic

    Almost all of the Fire Dept/Districts in St.Louis run Dual medic, as well as most Ambulance Districts. It's rarer to see a place that runs Medic/EMT than dual Medic.

    Prep for paramedic school?

    too true. As far as school is concerned, take all the previously mentioned courses seriously. Don't do the coursework to simply complete the course. Really try to understand the principles being taught. Also, put in the hard work. It will pay off in the long run, trust me. ^_^

    Starting IVs Next Week, any Tips?

    Once I've found a site I like, I'll always lightly push the skin in a perpendicular direction with my finger. It gives me a good idea how much of a "roller" the vein is, as well as letting me know how much I'll need to stabilize it. Good luck ^_^

    BP Sounds

    Absolutely. I'm just saying I've seen too many medics rely on NIBPs alone. Hospitals have the benefit of not dealing with the kind of "interference" that we do.

    BP Sounds

    I'll try to point us back on topic... how did both your diastolic readings compare? If both were close it'll give you a good indication of accuracy. Although a variation of ~20 mmHg is unlikely, many variables can skew a BP reading. All should be taken into consideration when trying to...

    EMT training is St Louis area

    Sorry, Let me clarify. First off, I'm a MO EMT with an IL license. To get a MO license you'll need a NREMT cert. When you have a MO license you can apply for reciprocity in IL. All you have to do is file some paperwork with the IL Department of Public Health and they'll mail you an IL...
