  1. 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
  2. Does anyone know if there are any contraindications with transferring blood with the Medsystem III infusion pump. I know the pump can, but is there any contraindications with the tubing. I'm not talking respiking with primary set. I just want to add the secondary extension set and continue. I've been trying to research online, but haven't found anything saying no or yes. Kim
  3. As to quote my niece "I'm not weird. I'm just a limited edition."

  4. Cough cough sniffle sniffle.....oh cold please go away


  6. Merry Christmas!!!!

  7. Today is a day off. Currently I am reclined in a chair and catching up on Hawaii Five 0. There is nothing like a little McGarrett and Dano to clear my mind. Yesterday was the extra day I worked. I came to realize of how hard I am on myself, but also realizing that due to this anxiety come into play. Now many of my fellow colleagues would advise me to get out of the field if this is the case. Yet, this time in my life, I am determined not to give up. I can only hope that my experience through my career will help those, who may be experiencing the same issues or help those coming i
  8. Sitting at work, harboring over posts in the city.

  9. I have no idea what I was thinking. I was overhearing a conversation, and through the process I ended up taking and extra shift. I can't believe that after all that brought me down. I am continuing to make myself known as a dedicated and contributing employee, but why. After so much of being brought down, I feel like I am a wounded girlfriend going back to my abusive boyfriend with this organization. It has been such a road to get to this point. Ups down past haunting me, don't know when I will feel that this will be worth it. The paycheck I get every 2 weeks is definitely a bright
  10. Another job where anxiety and fear have taken over, I came into this with a positive attitude. Now, I am on the verge of losing it again. I understand why many people have warned me about working for this national company. I came back into working into this field, because I was able to finally convince myself that I was good. I am good, now I am not saying this to toot my own horn, but just to help my confidence and self esteem that has been torn apart over so many years of being pushed down. I come back and I am pushed down again. Stupid policies that have nothing to do with patient car
  11. Well it been about 2 months since I posted one sentence into the blog. I keep telling myself I'm going to journal. I want to blog, but it's much more fun to play Bejeweled Blitz for 5 hours, then realize you've wasted your day. I watched Julie and Julia last night. Yup, it reminded me that I wanted to blog again. But yet, as many people feel, I am unsure what to write and how much I want to open up about myself. Oops excuse me I've been off the Vyvance for a month, something shiny just caught my attention. Ok I'm back. So where should I begin today. I'm at work. I took an
  12. Finished the 24, now I feel finished. LOL

  13. Congratulations, on your decision to return to school, being a part of EMS is being part of a special society. Once you begin it becomes a significant part of your life. I have been in EMS for 18 years, the last 11 as a medic. I am at a crossroads, finally want to continue on in my education. Don't know where to go next. Nursing....still doesn't thrill me, would like to stay in EMS. Would like to progress with the branching out EMS seems to be pursuing with Community/Preventative Paramedicine. I have no degree, but tons of credits all over the place. Yet, somehow I am determined not
  14. Has anyone ever had the issue in position of comfort come into view. We do our best to secure properly, but what do we do if the patient feels better in a fetal position or recovery position because of pain. Now I loved the pedi mates because they can secure onto cot, child seats good for infants as they get bigger becomes more difficult, and if child is bigger restrain seat in jump seat might be too small. As for securing child seat onto stretcher, we rearrange the straps and put head of stretcher in full fowlers position. Torso strap goes behind seated and can be thread through two ope
  15. This is an area, I am very interested in being involved. Maine is beginning this concept in rural areas. One of the Maine Comm Colleges has started a program, you must have at least an associate's degree in order to participate in the program. Yet, I am a certified paramedic. I find this to be great for EMS. It gives another area of advancement in EMS, and a great outlook to its future. The use of EMS, in some aspects, has worn down the financial aspect of healthcare. I am not saying at all, do away with what we do now, or is unimportant, or is the reason for the current financial dif
