  5. Hi Emma, I'd be happy to discuss with you what questions you have. Email me at ruffems@gmail.com and we can set up a time to discuss. I've been a paramedic for nearly 30 years and I am happy to answer your questions. I'll be at work tomorrow for a 24 hour shift so if you want to do the call tomorrow that would be fine. Michael
  6. Hey everyone! Saw we had no representation for the Sunshine State! Let's get it going!
  7. Looks like the Mass companies just keep on coming north.... https://www.conwaydailysun.com/business/local/action-ambulance-expanding-life-support-services/article_0fdaeca6-0578-11ea-9a0d-2b2874d78876.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share&fbclid=IwAR0_8A8lkyJehQ5x1NhdYXLnzdTGT4aLgUmKbzmU1z0xcyXAR-dm2ADUmis
  8. Could this be the future? I found this interesting article on ZDNet about the use of the new cellular technology to provide real time interaction with physician at the hospital. Is this something you would embrace or would you feel like someone is looking over your shoulder all the time? https://www.zdnet.com/video/how-to-make-the-most-of-big-data-in-your-organisation/
  9. look up a EMS group on face book called the EMS Experience and ask there. I know the owner of the group. If you still cannot find a buddy, let me know. I'm a medic but I'll help you out if you want. You can study and bounce questions off me and I'll help ya out.

  12. Contraindications for morphine use include (among others): head injury, decreased mental status, multiple trauma. Why? I understand why it's respiratory depression effect would make contraindicated for patients with COPD and asthmatic attacks, and why its effect on blood pressure would make it a bad choice for a hypotensive pt. But why would multiple trauma and altered LOC/head injuries make it so? I'd think head injuries would make rise of ICP an issue, one in which morphine would, if anything, help.
  13. One more thing, our new ambulance we are getting is gonna cost 235K, if you want to put an X-ray on that new ambulance the cost just went up to maybe 300K, no hospital or ambulance service will justify that cost.
  14. So what are you asking us? is this one of those "Our instructor gave us these two topics and we need to write a paper and I want you guys to write my paper for me" or what are you wanting from us? Yes we have had those people come here with just such a request. give us more info please in what you are asking.
  15. There is no guarantee he will continue on and get his EMT license. Maybe he's just doing this for class time or some other reason. I would take Off Label's advice and complete the course and mind your side of things. These things have a way of working their way out.
  16. Good afternoon EMS people. Please assist me. Is there anyone here who has done the FREC LEVEL 5 DIPLOMA COURSE at RONIN SA? If yes, was your qualification accepted in the UK, seeing that it was obtained outside the UK? Where did you do your practical placements? Thank you in advance for your help. 🙏🙏
  17. Good afternoon EMS people. Is there anyone here who has done the FREC LEVEL 5 DIPLOMA COURSE AT RONIN SA? WAS YOUR QUALIFICATION ACCEPTED IN THE UK, SEEING THAT IT WAS DONE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY? PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I COMMIT MYSELF 🙏🙏🙏🙏

    CRASH 3; TBI and TXA

    The issues of hyperfibrinolysis and fibrinolysis shutdown are issues that bring to the fore the importance of timing of TXA, TBI aside. Multisystem trauma is pretty likely in patients with TBI, and I think one of the CRASH trials does suggest that if you don't get the timing right, you may do harm.
  19. Thanks rock_shoes. Makes me feel like I am learning something. Although I’m a bit surprised that local protocols don’t reflect evidence based research (which is just common sense here), especially as a “critical fail” point. Well, as I said, I’m new to this.
  20. Perhaps try organizing your reporting into a systems based structure. Neuro Cardiovascular Respiratory GI/GU MSK Other (Obs/Endo/immune)
  21. Good luck to you sir. I work flight in British Columbia, Canada and love the job. The US air ambulance safety record scares the living daylights out of me. Enough so I wouldn't be willing to work air ambulance in the US.
  22. Hi all, I've done a long career in teaching/military, and thinking about what to do with my spare time in 18 months once my kids leave the house. I did a ridealong and volunteering in the local EMS unit seems like it could be really rewarding. I don't want to take the EMT course quite yet - I want to spend the remaining time I can with my kids while they're still around - but I've found a great course offered where I teach that I'll take next year once empty nest arrives, and in the meantime I'd like to poke around and see what those with experience say about the career, especially as a volunteer. I'm a bit concerned that as a 50 yo volunteer I'll never gain the patient volume to have the experience that would make me a great provider, but my local unit has some experienced people to help me along the way.
  23. has anyone tried transferring their EMT or Paramedic licence to australia? 

  24. Wonder what the charge was? but all things serious - what a evil person.
  25. I just wanted to know, is if recertification exam is just like the same exam you would receive when you get your initial certification. I want to recertify by exam this year. I just want to know what I should go over to be prepared. I took my initial exam in 2001, and wondering if there is anything different that may help me out. Thank youj
  26. Does anyone know what Suffolk County, New York fire districts run a paid dual Paramedic ambulance, rather than having a paramedic responding in a fly car?
  27. Any new blood to this site would be helpful. I'm not sure how much of a response you will get but please post away to your heart's content. I'm looking forward to what you have. But please don't get discouraged at the lack of response to your posts as this site is not the same as it was 5 or so years ago.
