    Carlito’s Way. Personally, I think DePalma and Pacino did it better the second time.

    COVID VACCINE

    That’s pretty funny. Smile and nod...smile and nod.

    Now all you have to do is start a thread in the HEMS sub forum.

    Movie Marathon Thread

    Indeed, a pretty impressive cast. A bit before my time though. I came on the scene more mid-to-late 80’s and was therefore thrust full force into the 80’s martial arts craze. Michael Dudikoff anybody? No? Best of the Best? A very young, undiscovered villainous JCVD. I even remember Remo...

    Caveman. Slaptstick with few words beyond grunts, and equally horrible claymation dinosaurs.

    The Difficult Airway Course is now available virtually online. Looks like I'll have some more CE to add to my CCP-C. It's cheapest for residents and EMS providers as well.

    Are EMS providers hated?

    Ah, you’re talking about self-hate. I mean, I guess it has the word hate in it, but no, I don’t believe that is why the thread was started. And the OP in this thread is not the original OP. Again, I’ve sat in on a lecture (was a refresher course pre-online options) about mental wellness, though...

    EMS and marriage

    Go back and re-read the first few pages. The same advice applies today as it did 13 years ago. It sounds like you’re completely immersed in the “identity” of your job; very toxic. I know of no marriage that’s come out stronger by constantly comparing roles or responsibilities. This would...

    It's almost Tax Day!!!

    Turbotax, wife’s the accountant, should have funds in about a week and a half. Done.

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    I think you’ve further illustrated my point. Agreed. As it stands now it serves mostly as a job title on any of my applications, and a means to support my family. What else matters?...

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    I liked your original post better; more fitting. But good on you (or the mods) for the edit.

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    I don’t disagree. But truthfully it being up to the agency’s medical director would require (rightfully so) extra training. Usually these systems see the value in proper education. No problems here. Nationally speaking why keep skimming over it? If you really “have to” intubate, take the time...

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    I’d imagine billing would still be largely based on the services rendered. I can’t see how a loose-term title changes that.

    11:1 Compression to Ventilation

    I have not heard of this. I’m curious to know where you got it from though. I’d be interested in some data as well. I mean, what’s the diff from say continuous compressions and what’s done now? Haha, good ol’ EBM.

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    I mean, I’m just sayin’...

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    All kidding aside, it does lend credibility to the irrelevance of the job title in my opinion. The layperson will still not care about anything but the type of customer service they’re provided, regardless of the “paramedic” who provides it. Nothing new here.

    My COVID year as a medic.

    Further elaboration—I finally got dual certified at the CCP-C and FP-C. Yes, I’m still lagging on the higher (collegiate) education. We sold and bought a new house. Now we’re awaiting all projects to fall into play from the equity of the house we sold. (as mentioned earlier) We all got...

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    But will it finally remove ETI from the “basic paramedic” curriculum?...boom. #MadSubthread#PotStirring
