    Hey Guys!

    Both of the kids were not breathing when we got to them. Baby was brought to me by a freaked out daddy.( to a freaked out but calm EMT btw) On vacation baby was drooling and blue, resp of maybe 1 (attempted by pt) I didnt really count, cpr was initiated on both kids (DUH). Baby #2 (2 yo) was down and blue prior to assist ventilation's. It was then when we realized SHIT my job does not carry Peds masks. Although we had a peds BVM. WTH!! I was unable to get any sounds AT ALL, although rise and fall was ok for me at the time. Baby #2 and #1 were both attached to pads. (Also at this time I was cu

    Hey Guys!

    Yes both kids were "saves". Nothing like seeing a blue baby on the ground. Scary. And Thanks!!

    Hey Guys!

    I know it has been a while since I have posted here. I hope to post more often. I had a Tummy Tuck 2 weeks ago and am doing fine. Just some residual shooting pain from the incisions and nerves healing that hurt like hell. I have moved into a new place and am trying to get it together. It is kinda hard when you cant lift more than a gal of milk (hell that is still hard). My son is coming for Christmas from Ohio and I am so thankful for that!! My tummy is flat and I am thankful for that too . I have a new home and a great daughter who is healthy and alive as well as a bf who is th
  4. Thaw was discussed. I have been there now for a bit however the lack of being able to take care of a pt better. For example not having the supplies needed. Not that not having lancets or fluids wouldnt be beneficial but it would help to access and establish care up there a bit better. I hope that comment makes sense. I know what I cam trying to say it is just not forming in my mind well enough to type out.
  5. They are (mostly) I think coming from the Company I work for. However I was told Med Control approved the "standards". On a side note I am 84 up there. We are talking 14,110 feet. Oxygen in the air is thinner and less of it. I do not know the %. Even in the city I live in is 92 is acceptable. As posted above I DO NOT treat from the monitor I treat from the pts appearance and vitals etc...
  6. It would be nice to meet another "city" person. PM me if you go. I will send you my # and we can meet up if you like.
  7. Well I could not think of a better title lol. This post is about my job. For those who dont know I work as an EMT on the top of a pretty busy mountain. I was recently asked to read/sign a few "standards" that some emts at my job have not either been aware of or things that they do not do. This is one of the "standards" as written (capitals and all) **Patients only need oxygen if they are BELOW 70% or if they are cyanotic (blue in the lips or nail beds). If patient is around 60% try to coach them up with out oxygen first. Have them sit down, drink water, and focus on deep breathing (
  8. Today is the annual FF memorial here in Colorado Springs. Is anyone attending here? I plan on going. (I live 10-15 mins away.) It is at 1 pm. Oops posted in wrong place. Mods please feel free to move.
  9. I was living in Ohio. Columbus to be exact. I was giving (my then 28 day old son a bath). Got a call (did not answer it) during the bath. I called back a few mins later on to "see" who called. It was my friend telling me to turn on the TV NOW!!! I asked what channel. She said ANY!! Turned it on and thought so many things. Too many to post. Mostly Who,What, Why, How and etc... I was NOT about to leave my DS but I am/was more concerned about the fact that he needed me more. I also would have (maybe) been there had I been needed at that time and needed then.
  10. http://awtr.blogspot.com/2007/09/cake-in-jar.html This is a good idea!! (my ex is in the Army) and I would send him things from here. http://www.minimus.biz/ Minimus ships super fast and they are so nice. Thanks your hubby for his service.
  11. Your welcome. I have not seen the knife care to post it?
  12. I thought it would be fun to post whacker gear. Things we run across that are funny etc... Here is something I found on craigslist looking for some work pants. http://denver.craigslist.org/tag/1842515430.html
  13. OK that said (my responses) I have read no further than Dwaynes post. Off to read more!
  14. I went to EMT class in Wa State. I WAS checked for background in that state. I was also CBI/FBI Checked here in CO. That said, I also believe that just because you have a clear background check DOES NOT mean that you are exempt from you being a sexual predator. It VERY WELL can mean someone (you OR anyone) just has not been caught is all.. All in all it is scary and it also means be on your guard, watch your partner and be an advocate if something does not seem right for your pts. Be observant be aware and for goodness sake be INTOLERANT of any odd behavior.
  15. Plus the elevation. i know that going up you loose a liter of fluids going up in elevation and down. That is above 7,000 ft. I dont know about fluids going to almost sea level. I would imagine so as well. Good luck on your test!!
