    Medical Diagnosis

    I'm not sure if that can cure what is ailing me, but the good thing is I can overcome it. Thanks though.

    Medical Diagnosis

    Used against me? As in, even blacklisting me to other EMS agencies?

    Seems logical, thanks for the advice.

    Medical Diagnosis

    GAD - General Anxiety Disorder. Sometimes, not every day, I get slight anxiety where I need to just stop for a moment, take a deep breath and keep on going. It was worse when it started, but now I've been able to cope with it. It doesn't interfere with my current job. I work in a clinic, and am...

    Medical Diagnosis

    Hello EMS Family, So I've been recently diagnosed (4 months ago) with a small medical diagnosis that has slightly affected my life, but not by much. I can still live, work, socialize, do things with friends and family, and still have as much a normal life as possible. However, my EMT CERT is...

    State Reciprocity

    Never2Old, I've been getting conflicting information. I've heard that they do reciprocity if I show them my EMT-B certificate (or even a copy of it) from NYS. I do not have my NREMT, but will look into it. Thanks.

    Great, thank you. I will save these documents for when ready to use. Thanks again.

    State Reciprocity

    Hi all, I currently hold a NYS Emt-B Cert, and am thinking of moving to Pennsylvania. There's lots of information on the internet on courses in PA, but I just can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for. Do I need to take the NREMT? Can I somehow utilize, convert or transfer my...

    Magazine Subscriptions

    I subscribe to JEMS - but hard copies no longer are issued I believe. I also read Country Living magazine, they have some helpful tips for wilderness safety and activities. I've attended a few of their fairs as well, and have been lucky to find tools (utility knives and such) for safety in my...

    Standby at Event Venues

    Hi EMS Family, I just passed my EMT exam, (and renewed it after 5 years off the job) and was advised by a fellow EMT to consider applying for an indoor local venue up here to do standby at events, like concerts or sporting events and the such. I would like to apply for it, but am not sure if a)...

    Part time EMTs and Paramedics

    I plan on starting off part time, in a volunteer agency. They suggest (require) 16 hours a month which can be divided into 4 hour or 8 hour shifts. I've also thought of per diem at other agencies but those are harder to come by. Privates around here require full time hours, with flexibility for...

    Vital Signs Conference, NY

    Are any of you planning on attending the upcoming EMS Conference in Syracuse, NY in October? I'd like to attend myself, but I haven't taken (or passed/failed) my state test yet (it's next week on 9/20/18), and won't get the results until just after the Conference is over. Any advice whether I...

    The absolute begining.

    I understand that, I'm specifically quoting my Instructor. As in "bulb" and "it's for stability" verbatim... I was stating that I was advised I got the wrong one in the first place.

    The absolute begining.

    Yes, bulb = bell. It's to hold onto for stability purposes.

    Self Study

    I'll heed the advice you have both given. I'm familiar with the "Prehospital Care" textbook, it was used in 2010 for my first EMT-B Class, and it was great. My weak spot is the pathway of blood flow through the heart and the oxygenated/deoxygenated blood. I will review all of it thoroughly...
