Hopefully most paramedic schools are teaching this nowadays…

More than the manufacturer’s recommended placement of limb leads, I’d promote getting into the habit of putting all potentially legitimate cardiac/ ACS patients on pads preemptively.

Also a worthwhile thought…how are you putting combi pads and 12 lead on at the same time?

I like doing doing AP placement for this. But it’s still sort of in the way sometimes.

As an intercept provider, I appreciate this. I don’t see it all the time from ground crews.

Interestingly enough, recently had a patient with an extremity injury who would only tolerate a left lateral recumbent position while curled in a fetal ball.

Talk about practicality superseding manufacturer recommendations on limb lead placement.
