  1. I am very dedicated to my work. I wear Paramedic/EMS shirts every day, even when I'm not on duty. The EMS station is my second home, and my second family. It often seems as if my life revolves around the EMS department, but it means nothing compared to my little girl. I am normally a very friendly person, but if you hurt my little girl you will make me mad. I know my little girl is growing up, even if I don't like it. She seems to like you, so I'll tolerate you dating her, but here are a few things for you to think about while you're with her: First of all, I go into hostile situations t

  2. "Ten Simple Rules for Dating My Daughter" Rule One: If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up. Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them. Rule Three: I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but

  3. As soon as i don't doubt my ability to support her on my own financially. I can't take that big of a step without having my life all together and sorted out. Want to have a place of my own and to not struggle as bad with bills. When i get down on my knee i want her to know 100% that i am fully capable of supporting her. She's a great girl. i feel blessed everyday to have her in my life and a healthy relationship with her parents.

  5. Neurologically generated trismus is one of those "ominous" signs generally associated with brain-stem lesion. Meaning, it's one of the later signs to show up and only releases when the herniation is so complete that there's NO response moving through the brainstem, i.e. mega bad juju. What your trying to do with midazolam "snow" the patient enough to stop the trismus impulse. Which you can do with suffiecent quantities. Here's the issues with that though. 1) The EMS systems involved in this halfassedry typically never prescribe enough midaz to do it. We're talking 30+mgs at times. 2)That

  6. You mean you have never treated Martian butt lice? Now that we are done I think, I will confess that my thought process was more intuitive than intelligent or clinical knowledge based ( I am sure it was obvious). As soon as you were "banned" from the thread for having "insider knowledge" I knew it was going to be something that would be considered exotic for the civilized world. That really narrowed the scope for me. I was beginning to believe that my suspicions were going to be as wild as Barbarella booty bumps but decided to ride it out just to see where it would go. Thanks chbare,

  7. You know one of the things that I see that is so vital, though maybe not obvious to those that haven't been here forever, about this thread... I was going to jump into this thread just a a sentence early on and say, "Remember, this is Chris, try not to run down a bunch of psycho rabbit trails.." But it wasn't necessary. The respect for chbare as the person presenting the scenario was obvious. No one was looking for Martian butt lice, or some other crazy, far out explanation, because they know that that isn't educational and also that Chris doesn't have the tiny penis (or so rumor has it) th

  9. Are you really accusing "the corporate medicine machine" of willfully killing people. What do they do with them? Sell their organs on the black market? They are responsible for their employees mistakes but don't encourage, endorse or promote them. It is true they should not, but you imply that the motivation for business it kill, kill, kill. It is a serious accusation. The kind of accusation that legally constitutes slander in a public forum. It's probably good none of them are watching or take your words to seriously. Of course you can have a lawsuit, with or without information

  10. First off i am pretty sure Asys was making fun of me with what you quoted. Secondly, i am guessing you have never been involved in a lawsuit. I wish you the best of luck, not if but when you do. Race

  11. P. vivax may be treated with quinine successfully, but QT prolongation is a concern. With P. falciparum and the region (Middle East/Asia), resistance to chloroquine is a concern. We can go many ways, but I would likely consider something like artemether and lumefantrine with yet another QTi precaution. I would not be adverse to treating with doxycycline if we believe this may be a case of severe malaria. Again, many potential options. The patient has no history of travel to any other country except Afghanistan over the past year. Flight layovers are also looked at, with the only layover

  13. Must be fact then. I stand corrected, was not aware you had so much hearsay at your disposal. (tongue in cheek sarcasm for those who are sarcasm-illiterate)

  14. If you do not share the mistake, you cannot stop it. How many times has a medic given Atrovent instead of Proventil because of similar packaging that is hard to read ? I agree that errors need to go to a committee, and strategies should be implemented to make sure it does not happen again. I think he meant report to the family of the dead patient Doc

  17. First, I think this suicide business needs to be put into context: The human body is a biological organism that is entirely built around survival. In fact, it's only been the past several thousand years where we had creatures on this planet that have been able to really think and ponder concepts that do not directly stem from "survival instinct" if you will. We in health care, who are also scientists in a sense should be keenly aware of just how important survival is. It's built into our nervous systems, we see in in the ability to clot, we recoginse it when we undergo physiological cha
