And I don’t remember AI having armed guards, but lots of hospitals have armed security.
Really? I’ve never seen hospitals with armed security apart from AI. Unless you count the guards at NIH.

EMS must be doing new hire training. We were at a call, a fairly legit flash PE, and 4 of them jumped put of the ambulance (Medic, EMT, Medic Trainee, and EMT trainee). I can only imagine some of our crews are running 3 FF on their engines, and then the ambulance shows up with more peeps than they got!

That's over the top. Never more than one new person on a crew.

Would be cooler if we got to see the 12-lead of the STEMI.

I wanted a copy of the 12 lead but I didn’t have time after the call.

What do you mean? I just buy/sell crypto on robinhood like I do any other stock.
well crypto relies on you owning the key for the encryption. if it's on robinhood or [insert vendor here], then they own the crypto since it's their key.

I wish I knew a way to get money out after owning crypto currency :(

I'm not 100% on what you're saying, but you literally trade it like any other stock, or you can transfer it to a digital wallet (in which case the wallet software generates a key)

I'm not so sure - where did you find that?

If you work on the same rig/monitor, you just hit the option button on the lifepak, go to archive, it'll alert you that you're leaving (in case the monitor was actively being used to monitor the patient), then you just scroll to find the patient (much easier to find, if you inputted the patient's name otherwise you gotta know date and time), select 12-lead, and print. I don't know how long it stays on the Lifepak for. Like a week? If you are able to do it, make sure it does not reveal protected health info like their name. This guy kinda talks about it in his video here. Our clinical education might do this to review a call, to see if we falsified a report/edited vitals. We also do it after calls, if the monitor was accidentally turned off before transmit or document vital signs (if the bluetooth/wifi fails).

I am sure that is obvious to you, but just making sure cause I've seen people in EKG groups get lazy and forget (or they are from a foreign country, but the group follows US standards with HIPAA so the mods get mad anyways).

For future cases, if you don't have enough time after the call, want to share it, and if it doesn't get you in trouble/break policy. Some companies have rules stricter than HIPAA and don't want you to share anything at all so be careful.
