    So I'm loving the Alliance of American Football. Currently a San Antonio Commanders fan, but the Arizona Hotshots are competing for my eyes and fandom as well. The quality of play is actually really good, the rules are nearly identical (it's not Arena football), and the costs are appropriate. I...

    No ETI.

    Another consideration here is that arrests make up the majority of field intubations. By removing intubation from most arrests, you are also removing significant opportunities for it that may not be replicable with alternative training. The science has shown it doesn’t matter to outcomes of...

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    Those are pretty great. Better than you’ll find in DFW

    No ETI.

    Although I am broadly supportive of the concept of minimizing time without compressions, I think that wholesale abandonment of ETI for arrests is a bad plan. Some airways are not amicable to SGA placement, especially in pediatric patients or trauma victims. Not all arrests are identical, and...

    I've got the Excel app and can run it, but really want to make it its own stand-alone app, not just a living spreadsheet.

    Medication Error Learning

    And they are culpable. Civil suits. Malpractice. Professional sanctions. Settlements. Public apologies. But they're not going to jail for good-faith errors.

    Medication Error Learning

    Terrible precedent. Yes, she errored. Revocation of licensure is appropriate. However, there was no ill intent, no malice, and although she was neglectful, it was understandable. Criminal charges will only chill future reporting of errors and will establish precedent for punishing people for...

    Anyone know how to make an excel spreadsheet into an app?

    This game is terrible football. I’m ready for this new “Alliance of American Football” (featuring teams from San Antonio and San Diego) until the Chargers return. Like....so terribly bad it is living up to the Halftime Show’s terrible level. HOW DO YOU NOT DO SWEET VICTORY WHEN YOU HAVE THE...

    A few, but they don’t do what my sheet does. PM me and I’ll show you.

    Drug dose calculations

    I actually made a dynamic “live” Excel spreadsheet that lives on my phone and calculates weight-based dosage and volume. Anyone know how to make an app?

    Favorite Manufacturer

    Crest line is fancy. Excellence totally sucked, but in fairness, that module was many times remounted.

    Favorite Manufacturer

    So who’s your favorite manufacturer, both of chassis and modules (or outfitter, if you’re a Type-2 aficionado). I’ve worked with a lot of different manufacturers, but my most recent experience has been with Fraziers riding on Ford medium-duty chassis. I like the air conditioning and general...

    career

    Well that’s a wide-open question. Pretty much anywhere in the US can do that for you, with the exception of some super-rural communities. The vast majority of EMS isn’t really defined by protocols per se; you’ll be doing the same few things with different variations. What sort of income...

    The Houston-area red shirt service is on a purge. Beware, applicants, people are getting terminated for extremely sketchy reasons. Extremely sketchy reasons.

    Social Media Advice

    This is primarily oriented towards the newer people in this field, but bears consideration for all of us. Obviously, social media is a thing. Facebook, Twitter, EMTLife, Instagram, etc. It’s not going away. So, here’s some advice. 1. Don’t engage cults of personality or pages. There’s more than...

    Could likely be set up with a local dry cleaner quite easily.

    AMR Amarillo or Collin County?

    Anywhere is going to work to some extent with a school schedule, depending on how rigorous it is. For most undergrad courses, they are mirrored, so the same lecture will be M/T and then W/Th or so on and so forth. Shift trades and 24s make school easier. Clinical times and hard sciences can be...
