  1. I don't think there is much change in the partial pressures. You are just unloading more CO2 per minute because of the increased resp rate. Just to make up some numbers, let's say you get rid of 100gms of CO2 with each breath. Breathing at 10 times per minute, you are removing 1000gms. Now, increase your rate to 20 times per minute and you are no getting rid of 2000gms per minute. Clear as mud?
  2. Sorry to hear about the test but good for you with sticking to it. I don't know anything about where you are but maybe try a full length course. Just remember that when you take your exams you have to do it based on what the book says.
  3. Glad to hear you are okay. It's a crazy world out there lately.
  4. Welcome and I hope your test went well.
  5. It's too late for advice at this point but I hope it went well.
  6. Sad. Tom Lateulere was a big name in EMS in NYS and Suffolk County and a great guy. He passed away about a month ago. PS-Connie Kraft is a great nurse and I enjoyed working with her during residency.
  7. You can also insert 'Local, Oversized Healthcare System'
  8. Good luck, but I have a feeling you are going to get the same response here as you did on the other site.
  9. OK, good sir, if we are going to air our dirty laundry, let air all of it and not just your frilly panties. Ask my opponent who the medical director for Ruff University is. Ask him who it is that is giving these super expanded community paramedic protocols. That's right. It's me. So either way, I win. Your vote doesn't count. It's almost like I have a former president and his wife who is running for president in my back pocket. Carry on sheeple.
  10. Vote for me and I will give everyone expanded standing orders. I don't see my opponent making such promises. All I have heard him say is that we shouldn't change things because this is the way we have always done it.He even went so far as to use the term 'ambulance driver'
  11. Nope. Maybe we should stir the pot a bit. So, who's voting for Osama Bin Laden?
  12. I got ya. Yeah, you can't vote and then complain you didn't know what you were getting yourself into. Educate yourself or don't vote.
  13. Yesterday's award was not for participation, it was for your written brilliance. The way you wove a tail comparing working for a private ambulance service to having your genitals fondled was pure genius. If we still had forum signatures, I would have made your quote my signature. You truly won the internet yesterday.
  14. In defense of the voters (I don't have enough knowledge to say if it was a good idea or not) if it has never been done before, how can they truly know what it means. It's uncharted territory, but sometimes that's what needs to be done.
  15. I think Ruff wins the internet today.
  16. Good call. Let's go nuclear and talk about how Brexit will affect the US Presidential race.
  17. Yeah, what ERdoc said.
  18. I think most people are still here and lurk but just don't post much. Someone needs to start an epic thread that is capable of generating lost of discussion. Should we talk about religion or politics?
  19. There is no answer for this question. Privates are different depending on where you work. In some areas they do 911 stuff while in other parts of the country they only do IFTs and renal roundup/discharges. If you have a specific company and location in mind, you might get some valuable information.

    It wasn't the biting but yeah, pretty close.

    Welcome, and I only bite when asked to.
  22. Getting a job in the hospital will be hit or miss. As for a physician, I don't know of any that specifically hire paramedics. Most just hire MAs. If you are interested in working in the hospital or clinic, why not just work on becoming an RN, PA or MD/DO?
  23. NASCAR!!! LEFT TURN!!! says the guy raised in middle class, suburban NY.
