  1. Why Left Lateral Recumbent?

    Of course, that pesky BLS airway.
  2. Why Left Lateral Recumbent?

    Holy resurrection Batman. If after 4 years anyone is sill around and interested I think that Left lateral recumbent, or any recumbent position will better circulation by increasing venous return, pre-load and therefore stroke volume in absence of pathologies that would deny this mechanism.
  3. Yet another Introduction post!

    Welcome to the City!
  4. Hello. So where are you a EMT or medic?

    We roll the same for all calls. I am on the clock and it really doesn't matter who the patient is, unless of course it was Jennifer Aniston.

  6. Hello. So where are you a EMT or medic?

    I toothache can be pretty darn serious leading to a host of life threatening situations, cellulitis, sepsis, pericarditis ...
  7. Stress

    Being vague and paying toxic people to go away, heck yea!!
  8. Hello. So where are you a EMT or medic?

    I do not base my motivation on the patients chief complaint, nature of illness nor MOI. Equality of treatment, attitude and care for the patients is a key component of professionalism. I may fail in my endeavor to provide consistent, compassionate care to all patients, but I try not to fail.
  9. Hello. So where are you a EMT or medic?

    Then again the logical evolution of EMS as a profession would be for us to become primary care givers, wouldn't you think?
  10. Well, you just join right in nancybell. It is a pleasure to have you!

    Hello Monica, Congratulations on deciding on a career in EMS. I have found it to be challenging and rewarding in ways that go far beyond the money. We get to help people at times when they are most needy even though their complaint may seem menial to many. Knowing that I was able to make a difference is one of the most rewarding feelings. If you really love EMS then there is no reason why EMT should not be just the beginning. You should consider Paramedic somewhere in the future. Welcome!
  12. Hello. So where are you a EMT or medic?

    I hope i wasn't one of the offending parties, "Mr grumpy gills". I was attempting at humor. Your point is well received.
