  2. Becoming A EMT. HELP!!

    Each State has its own process and requirements. You should be able to visit State Departments of Health to get basic information on the certification process. Coming to live and work in America You'll also need things like a work Visa and to meet residency and immigration requirements. I would suggest seeking out an international exchange program to assist you. There are various programs for foreign born educational credit, some digging on the internet will get you some info on education equivalency and the processes to obtain it. Bottom line, whosoever offers you an opinion (myself included) Just remember to research the States, and all your options, chose those that will lead you to happiness and contentment. Good Luck.

  4. Introducing Clubs

    Hello everyone, You can now create private groups here at EMT City. To do so, click on Clubs at the top and then configure your club. There are a few different options to choose from. Start one up and invite your friends to join you. Want a private place to talk about work without being on facebook? This would be the place. Want to just invite certain people into your club? You can do that as well. Want to invite everyone into your club? That can happen as well. I look forward to your feedback.

  9. Fyi Rules of Site page is down

    Thank you Jackson. With all the updates we have gone through in the many years we have been running, the link must have broke. I will try to find where it is and get that updated. Welcome and pass the word along that we are here!
  10. Hey! New EMT, need quick response to question please :)

  11. Hey all, I'm new to this site, and I have LOVED what I've seen so far from other questions and discussions. I'm excited to stick around! But I have a pressing question, can you guys help me out? I posted a question in the "General EMS Discussion" Forum, here's the link: I'm just looking for a quick response, because the job starts this Friday, September 22nd. In advance, thank you all SO much!

    What was going through your head Forest, Study forest study.
  13. Old folks Still here?

    I just started an Advanced EMT course. May God rest my soul. I don't know what I was thinking.
  14. Anyone ever done this?

    I don't know that I've cooked but I've made sandwiches for people. I've bought food for people. It happens.
  15. Hello, I just joined and the welcome page refers me to the Rules of the Site page. I just want to let you know that when I go the the page at http://www.emtcity.com/index.php?app=forums&module=extras&section=boardrules there is an error message that say the page does not exist. It's no biggie and I'm not criticizing or asking anyone to fix it, but I want to let you know in case the webmaster isn't aware. I'm looking forward to exploring the site because I always end up reading posts and pages from here while reading about emergency medicine. Have a great day, Jackson

    https://www.ems1.com/ems-heroes/articles/323740048-Responders-cook-dinner-for-woman-who-accidentally-hit-lifeline-alert/?NewsletterID=&utm_source=iContact&utm_medium=email&utm_content=TopNewsRelated2Title&utm_campaign=EMS1Member&cub_id=usr_rYgxvJiMpoxX5g7Z I've cooked countless meals for patients who had no one to provide food for them. Diabetics as well - make em a meal before you leave.
  17. And then there's this

    I remember when I was working furiously in EMS, Every patient we transported we got a facesheet on. It's not that hard to go and ask for a facesheet. the only issue would be that the hospital hasn't had a chance to put all the info in the system but if the patient has been there before, there is probably a current face sheet that would be available.
  18. And then there's this

    Why on earth isn't someone from billing following up with the hospital to ensure that they have the right information? The patients register at the facility, why not require a copy of the facesheet to be scanned from the facility.
  19. Double 'P' waves?!?

    Its difficult to comment on this patient with the limited amount of information available. I would be interested in seeing a copy of her EKG tracing as well as her medication list. Based on what you have told us it sounds to me like your patient was experiencing a second degree heart block. Did your patient have any history of tachycardia or any ablation therapy?

  23. Books Every Paramedic Student Should Read

    Did it resolve? Not encountered that issue before. Let me know otherwise so that I can create an account manually.
  24. Double 'P' waves?!?

    Did he smoke? Did he have pneumonia? I would go on the limb and say he had cor pulmonale, or some form of an enlarged atrium

  27. Books Every Paramedic Student Should Read

    what coupon?
  28. Books Every Paramedic Student Should Read

    Sorry, I forgot mentioning that you guys can of course use the coupon to register without paying, regardless of whether you're a student or not. No need to pay, that is.

    Just tried and the message I got is that the DNS Cannot be found. Looking at your link it's broken. To get to the website, it seems to not be linkable here so just type in www.ecgwaves.com your site is pretty well done. A lot of information is in there. Nice work that I can see from a cursory look.
