You do know that it was common for funeral parlors to operate ambulance services, yes? And once upon a time it was a common practice to pick up the dead bodies first. More money in it.And that’s how we know you’re faking it.
This will likely fall on deaf ears, but I’ll try anyway. Don’t worry about screwing up your first whatever call; not because you won’t but because you absolutely 100% will. It’s the nature of the beast. The first time you do anything it’s going to be a gong show no matter how many times you read the manual.I'm nervous for when my first cardiac arrest happens, I think about it all the time and how I need to react.
You refer to TV as the “brainwash tube” and haven’t deigned to look at one in 30 years; but you’re on the internet/social media? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard and I went to public school.You do know that it was common for funeral parlors to operate ambulance services, yes? And once upon a time it was a common practice to pick up the dead bodies first. More money in it.
BTW, I haven't watched the brainwash tube in well over 30 years. Excuse me for being slow on the uptake.
I wonder how many of our modern day medics would like to get sent out on runs in modified hearses with your equipment consisting of a stretcher and first aid kit you were forbidden to use without physicians orders?
Hey, Scott33, good to hear from you. Looks like you've done a few things I wish I had. 'Course then I might have missed my chance to make all that Tennessee-medic money.First EMS job was back in 2001 for an obese male cardiac arrest crumpled over in his tiny bathroom at home. While I was flapping about trying to figure out how to get access to him, forum member mgr22 backed my crew up and casually pronounced him expired for quite some time. I still emphasize the importance of ‘assessment before treatment’ to anyone I precept, due to this, and other similar calls.
