Our BLS NTG Protocol is systolic over 110

Epi is on the bus, but requires a call to med control before giving it if time permits

you want to learn about something, learn about it! i'm a ma basic. not really much in the way of actual medical practicew we can do in this state. so what. i took acls, learned how to tube. took the acls for basics course. learned about meds and rythms and defib/pacing/cardioversion. cant practice any of these skills(and consequently, dont retain as much of the info) but i had the interest so i went after it. could foundation to build on when i go for my medic.
