  1. Hey Naturegirl, you still out there?
  2. emtdennis

    What now?

    Sometimes our children become our inspiration. Congrats to your son.
  3. We're at the hospital and the rig won't start.
  4. Congrats Scubanurse!!
  5. In a disgusted tone, What is your frequent flier level now?
  6. How do you define a bench seat? The units I work in have a small seat on one side, a seat that runs the length of the pt compartment on the other side, and a rotating "captain's chair" at the head of the patient.
  7. Happy Birthday and many prayers for Momma B.
  8. I'll stick with the classroom training. Taking courses online are a good cure for insomnia (at least for me).
  9. Decided to break down and put in a quarter. got a used emisis bag dammit!!!!
  10. Puts in a quarter and gets a blow-up doll
  11. Oh. I wouldn't dare wear it on a call!! No telling what else may try to crawl up there, plus a little cold in the winter
  12. Same here, great thread, Made me do some thinking, thanks
  13. Since I don't see any advanced directives, they don't exist (In NY you have to physically see them). As someone said earlier, calmly convince the patient to let you check vitals, since he is actively in distress. This is definitley something I would want to get medical control involved in. I only feel this way because the patient is AOx3 and is resisting transport, (unless he goes unresponsive) For the sake of our EMT student, what did your instructor think of the answers that were given here? It was pointed out earlier to consider some of your own solutions then come here with them and let members advise you. I personally like to see that you put effort into it on your own.
  14. Time for me to get back to the real things, I've missed these pages
  15. Congratulations and hang in there Chad!!
  16. Ok, I thought telling a hair raising story to a bald man was misery enough.
  17. How long have you been pregnant (to a heavyset lady)?
  18. You know Capt, you are right. there will be no happy medium. Sorry to say that. People think guns should be registered. Why? Any rule that is applied will be to the law abiding citizens and no one else. You can have all the rules you want, but nothing will change. Look at several of the last incidents we have had in this country. The weapons were legally registered, maybe not to the person who used them in the crime but they were registered. No form of government intervention will change the ultimate use of the weapon. You still will have underground or criminal element, that regardless of rules in place will have no regard for safety. Let's outlaw cars, because there are so may accidents. Why don't we outlaw liquor because of the many people killed on the highways. This arguement has been going on for over 50 years, and I for one am afraid to put any more control of what I can do, into the hands of the government. JMHO!
  19. Speaking of cpr, what is anyone's thoughts on the "new" process being taught by the AHA? If I understand it correctly it is soo easy to do by the average citizen. I am just not familiar with it yet. Hoping to take lessons within a couple of weeks. There is no certification involved for the average person, but it may at least keep things flowing for the patient til EMTs can get there.
  20. This thing would be lots of fun to wear around the house. Stretched out on the porch smoking a cigar and having a Jameson's!! Would love to get one
  21. Loved it!!!! I sure miss some of the times in the military..
  22. Don'y know that I like the idea of a jumpsuit for anything in EMS, easier to change a pair of pants or a shirt than the whole jumpsuit. Just a thought...
  23. I am wondering, why the sharps container. Is that something you deal with in your area or your scope?
