I have come to the conclusion that paramedics should have as standard practice the ability to perform appendectomy. This can be taught in just a matter of a few hours. It is a simple skill that does not require any real education behind it. What say you?

Stop trying to stir the pot. :l

Not stirring we need more skills. Plus think how much money we could make. Instead of ambulances we will be called mobile surgical suites.

I don't think that is possible, simple as it looks like in you tube but only surgeons can do it. Even doctors cannot do it if not trained in surgery. :p

It would be just like narcan. You would do it and them dump them in the lap of a pissed off ER Doc and staff.

Excellent idea!
