    ****ed up and got a ticket for aggressive driving. Am I done for?

    @emtpulledover All you have to do is prove to potential employers that would absolutely never happen when you are on the job. Along the lines of teaching fish to ride bicycles. See if you can get your lawyer to have it dialed down. Make offers like community service... essentially, get it...

    Community effort - a win all around

    A relative was an SO on the response. Isn't that flat out amazing? It may come as a complete surprise but just because I live in S.E. Asia I lived in the US for 45 years, and maintain connections and contacts with quite a few people in the US. What is much more surprising is thinking just...

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    ? I understand what you are saying. But, as a rough analogy, comparing THC to a vaccine is a dachshund vs a draft horse. Both are mammals with four legs. The common denominator seems to be an extreme lack of critical thinking. The reasoning abilities go un-exercised until they become...

    Community effort - a win all around

    Rural area, midwest. A couple rented a house temporarily and moved in with an elderly relative. They wanted to get away from Covid and the city where BLM demonstrations were ongoing and headline news was the usual gossip. Then the couple got called back in to work. They called their relative...

    Suggestions sought - for handicapped

    An adults assisted living facility. The residents are classified as discarded. No money, no family assistance. The government assistance, about $20 per person per month goes straight to paying staff and upkeep. The place is neat and clean, occupants well cared for, but bare bones. Only around 4...

    COVID VACCINE

    With my past history the doc consensus is they want me to check into the hospital for 24 hours post shot. Weird me out, will they? If I'm going that route I want to add my hernia laparoscopy and carpal tunnel release jobs in with the package. Nothing quite like asking the medical profession to...

    Are EMS providers hated?

    I'd like something clarified here. Are EMS Providers Hated? Is this in reference to the viewpoint of the general public? That is beyond far fetched. What would best describe the general public point of view is appreciative. Undoubtedly there are a lot of individual incidents where some degree...

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    Just my take. Alcohol is a disease or debility, like other recreational drugs inclusive of junk foods. The games the neurons and blood sugars play. With THC, the jury is out in my case. I have a neurological condition and any hint of a high sends me into a pretty severe malaise that comes...

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    I'm unsure what exactly that is in reference to. But in the case of much of SE Asia, in Japan - the Yakuza, in China the tongs, in Vietnam, Lao, Cambodia and Thailand, the society elite, all follow the money and all have a very strong influence with politicians or are politicians themselves...

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    At the risk of beating a dead horse here. I'm attempting to be as lucid as possible. With alcohol, it's multiple factors 1+1+1... Adversely affects fine motor skills + affects judgement = A few million traffic accidents - clinically proven. But there is a third factor. Socially acceptable to...

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    From word go, I'm anti marijuana, along with any other drug that isn't a necessity. That being said, marijuana is getting somewhat of a bad rap in that it's out of the closet so to speak and effects of it combined with alcohol are very well know. We aren't getting anywhere as much info on the...

    Are EMS providers hated?

    Not seeing hate, but most certainly disparagement within ranks such as the usual 'i'm going to call BS' @CarSevenFour was subjected to. Whether it's some gripe from the general public or the 'I've never heard/experienced that therefore the person is a liar' attitude it's unfounded, unneeded and...

    EMT Oath- My problem

    Seems to me this all boils down to the dignity of the individual. Without dignity and self respect an oath is meaningless. With them an oath is unnecessary. As a post script, the political circus in the US the past few years has clearly demonstrated even under penalty of perjury an oath isn't...

    EMT Oath- My problem

    Opinions can be truth. We are talking about a philosophy here. Ethics, also called moral philosophy, the discipline concerned with what is morally good and bad and morally right and wrong. The term is also applied to any system or theory of moral values or principles. -Britannica Ethics is...

    EMT Oath- My problem

    @E tank I would very much prefer to agree with you there. But an irreducible conundrum remains.. For example, under certain circumstances a person could justify the deliberate premeditated death of another as in a greater good scenario, while others will maintain that such an act can never be...

    EMT Oath- My problem

    "Ethical standards are purely subjective, based upon the dignity of the person, their self respect, and their moral fiber." -A paraphrased assessment of Pico della Mirandola's Oration on the Dignity of Man. I'd follow that up with, "There remain some truths too ephemeral to be captured in the...

    I'm wondering what follow up information has come to light since that post. The clinical details, not lamestream media noise. Any links? White papers?

    Can you genuinely get Manual Vitals in every scenario?

    For me, a very informative, instructive maybe a minute and a half - full EMT patient assesment course. Patient brought in, ambulance, unconscious. Elderly frail female. Nurses having trouble with vitals including BP monitor and intermittent artifact irregular ECG. RT was called in, supervisor...

    Are EMS providers hated?

    The original question, EMS... Hated, is simply too vague and covers way too much ground. I've seen and been in civil disturbance situations where medical persons were verbally called out. It was way out of line and equating individual ambulance crews that responded with law enforcement during...
