    Antique Jewelry

    There are two major reasons for purchasing antique jewelry: as an investment and for fashion. While the term “fashionable antiques” might appear to be an oxymoron, the wearing of old but tasteful jewelry has always been regarded as both fashionable and acceptable in society. A study of antique jewelry down the ages can tell a lot about the history and culture of a country. The purpose of personalised necklace cheap jewelry was originally to adorn ourselves, and then became a symbol of status. The ability to afford rare and expensive gems and metals was displayed publicly by wearing them on one's person. "Look at me: I am richer than you!" As design became increasingly important, the famous jewelry houses and designers such as Tiffany and Cartier were born from their unique design capabilities, but as the 20th century came along, bracelet for your girlfriend design became secondary to setting as many diamonds as possible in a piece to increase its actual raw material cost as opposed to its perceived value. It is doubtful if today's jewelry will ever become as sought after as that of the great fashion houses and jewelers, and now is the time to purchase antique custom friendship necklace jewelry for investment because, as it is snapped up and placed in collections, there appears little capable of taking its place. There is still a lot of antique jewelry to be found in antique shops, and even online you will see many fine pieces selling at affordable prices. It is still worn, of course, although yesterday's fine pieces do not always fit with today's clothes fashions. Nevertheless, as taste is replaced by price, this is less important a factor than it once was, and the days appear to be over when best friend rings[visit] jewelry was designed to suit particular styles of clothing and fabrics. Today, anything goes as long as it is bright, glittering and expensive. In many ways, it has superseded taste and sensitive design. So, what should you be looking for when purchasing antique jewelry - whether it is for investment or fashion personalized necklaces? First check the symmetry of the piece. True antiques are not symmetrical: they are hand-made and each side is slightly different than the other. You can also tell a lot from the fastenings, because barrel clasps are modern, as are post and clip and clip-back earring fastenings (1930s at earliest). An antique promise rings for her will be smooth to the feel, and have no jaggy edges that catch on your hands and clothing.

  6. 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/
  7. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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. 🙏🙏

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. Perhaps try organizing your reporting into a systems based structure. Neuro Cardiovascular Respiratory GI/GU MSK Other (Obs/Endo/immune)
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. has anyone tried transferring their EMT or Paramedic licence to australia? 

  23. Wonder what the charge was? but all things serious - what a evil person.
  24. 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
  25. 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?
  26. 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.
  27. Hi Laurknee13 - I've seen that you have posted a couple of basic questions that honestly should have been answered in your EMT class. But since you are asking no - you should open the oxygen up to 15lpm for the BVM. Have you asked your instructor these questions?
  28. no - continue on to the h ospital - the AED can be put on while you are enroute to the hospital.
  29. What treatment is available if a patient has taken an ED med, then calls for assistance having chest pain? If you cannot administer nitro, what do you use?
