Hello from Austria!
Our Kids from Jugendrotkreuz helped filming a test ALS training Video. I hope you like it. It should be based on ERC 2022, however not all worked out that well ;-)
Please let me know your feedback, we would like to continue with stuff like that.
All the Best

I am taking my ALS Psychomotor Exam in the next few days. I’ve passed my NREMT-P written exam already, so this is the last thing I need. Any last minute tips? I have pre-test jitters lol. Thanks in advance!

Hey this is mainly for my fellow combat medics out there. I just got assigned to an airborne unit straight out of ait/airborne school. A big concern I've heard from people is that the unit's current medics are not trained well enough to handle an airborne incident whether from the landing or...
Capnography has been said to be useful, but its not in Maine EMS protocol for basics. There is nothing wrong with reading a waveform if you are trained to do so. What do you think? Is it helpful? What scenario would you think this to be most helpful? Where do you think it would not be useful? Do...

I've seen many threads with this topic. I am a new EMT and have one more day of training with an IFT company. However, due to submitting various applications to different companies, I have an offer for a 911 company as well. I don't know which to pick. I understand IFTs are what you make of it...
I recently took a BLS CPR class to renew my cert and the instructor told us that after some time if the patient has no chest rise and fall and the object is still there, that ALS will insert an advanced airway and just push the object into the lungs.
1. If there's no ALS (I'm an EMT) do we just...
Hey all. I am going to be doing a final essay in paramedic school and I just wanted to post on this forum to see what everyone thought. I am interested in progressive protocols and perhaps sometime in my career, be involved or start a movement for a nationwide set of protocols and more training...
