    What is it about EMS personell that nurses/docs dont like?

    There was usually at least one person at my clinicals who loved to teach students. I really enjoyed my OR time getting intubations the most. The anesthesiologist I followed not only made sure I got as many intubations and airways as I could but also explained her job and why she did certain...

    Volunteer Paramedic?

    I've heard the opposite. I have heard that Maryland will continue to recognize EMT-I 99 or as MD calls it CRT. If they were to only recognize B's and P's there would be an uproar from a lot of jurisdictions as many will only train their providers to the I-99 level.

    Straight from the MD protocol WHILE TIME, DISTANCE, AND PROXIMITY ARE ALL FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE TRIAGE DECISION, THE TRAUMA DECISION TREE SHOULD BE USED TO DETERMINE WHO SHOULD BE TRANSPORTED TO THE NEAREST APPROPRIATE TRAUMA CENTER AND WHEN THE TRANSPORT SHOULD OCCUR. Really...

    You might have seen a housefly, or superfly, but I bet you haven't seen a donkey fly.

    There was a call a few months ago that involved a llama and a pig attacking a man. The pig was following the llama around. Crew never found an injured man though. They said it was a call they would never forget. It's not something you will see every day in pg county md.

    Health Care Reform

    I'm gonna reply to the political part of this first. This is not a Republic vs. Democrat issue. This has turned into a Goverment vs. the People issue. The majority did not want this and there elected officials did not represent them. The Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats. They...

    Questions regarding medic class

    No smoke necessary. The deal is you do the extra work you get the required proof of completing but you don't get the college credit for the courses. Either way, I'm not going to go that route.

    Questions regarding medic class

    I'm in the I class right now in Maryland.. A few of us have been "selected" by the teacher to be able to test out for P instead of I for the Nation Registry test.

    "How we do it in the field" <-- VALID?

    There is a hospital in my first due. Usually we can have a code at the hospital before the medics are on scene. It does not take long to load a code up in the ambo. I agree with the 30 second remark. We have BLS, Engine and ALS dispatched on codes. So if we have our engine and BLS going...
