    Looking for a compact reliable Glucometer

    My supplier carries the cheap, consumer-grade off the shelf stuff. When your work usually takes you 2-3 hrs away from a Level 1, you want something more than Consumer Grade.

    Globetrotting As a Paramedic

    Like Running Water...Lack of a Hot Shower, Lack of Fresh Produce...and you and your bag are the only 9-1-1 response. Ah.....I would kiss the ground on every return from OCONUS. It taught me that the smallest things in the U.S are still held close in my heart. There's nothing that will warm...

    Post C-19 and dengue - odd symptoms

    I'd have your GP run an Endocrine Panel. Most Docs overlook the idea , in non-critical Pts, that Brain Chemistry-Levels (Cortisol, Pregnenolone, ACTH) and related Chemical Imbalances cause the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic systems to go off-kilter and cause HTN and Tachy events , (even with...

    Hope he got tested for TB...its an overlooked Epidemic in California. Two LEO Friends got it and they both were no where near the Patient's body. Contageous Airborne particles suck!

    How do you determine if the AED Possessor is available to respond, (i.e. the AED is at Home and the Owner is away from home)? Will AHA Certs be required to insure proficiency with AED and CPR? We all go through re-certs and retraining. I believe to make this work the Volunteers are going to...

    Massive MCI at Astroworld

    FYI, Average Concert Sound Levels range from 150-175+ dB. I doubt a 30w Cart Siren, will hurt (as a Cart has a limited electrical system).....Unless you embed an Ear in the Siren's Speaker for over a minute or so..lol I've always been success in moving pedestrians with a Tap on of the...

    Pediatric Drowning Airway Management

    I would agree with the OP. I believe its just a matter of the lack data with success that drives the hesitancy. https://journals.physiology.org/doi/full/10.1152/physiol.00002.2015 Emesis Detailed data on the occurrence of emesis in drowning are also lacking. One study, reported 25–60% of...

    Massive MCI at Astroworld

    I understand it was uncontrolled Kaos......Just thinking out loud; The other idea of using audible signalling is to get the attention of the Spotter, (who is up high looking for things that can't be seen from ground level) and would then direct resources, (LEOS/Security) to assist. Btw, The...

    Massive MCI at Astroworld

    Did any wonder why the EMS Carts had no Siren activated. In my 25 yrs a Siren is better than Warning Lights in moving a Pedestrian/Crowd. Thinking out Loud; A Horn would of also gotten people to look at the Cart Operator who would be signalling to make a clear path

    Massive MCI at Astroworld

    What everybody's missing is the failure of the Incident Action Plan (IAP). Almost every large event where First Responders are assigned should have an active IAP. The IAP address MCI's. I'm not going to surmise what part of the IAP failed. Here's the FEMA ICS Templates on what should have...

    Continuing my career with marfans?

    Your Father was partially correct in treating you NORMALLY. You currently have NO MEDICAL RESTRICTIONS; Live life to the fullest. I've always gotten 2-3 2nd Opinions with a major diagnosis, as Doctors are like EMTs and Auto Mechanic, (some graduated Cum Laude and come with a 70.1 GPA)...
