  1. I haven't been on in a while, but I check in on occasion.
  2. I apologize for not responding sooner. I've been sick lately and forgot about this post. Unfortunately, my idea was shot down by the training officer, so I guess on to the next idea!
  3. My grandma explained this very well last week. She said, "The guys figured that if girls could show cleavage up top, they should be able to show it too, just has to be lower."
  4. I was thinking about talking to my director about starting up an EMS explorers program. If I did and got the go ahead, what would I need to start off with, other than interested teenagers?
  5. Went to the eye doctor today, found out I need to go to to a neurologist. Wth?!?

  6. I hereby resign from adulthood.

  7. Correction, 9 days 17 hours and 25 minutes!!

  8. I have a question about the first cardiac arrest I ran as a lone medic on the unit. The call came in as an anaphalactic reaction. We arrive on scene to find a 55 year old male siting in a chair, skin cool and clammy. The patients brother stated that he had walked to his house, came in complaining he had been stung by a wasp and then wouldn't respond any more. Initial assessment showed an overweight male sitting in a chair, unresponsive. Breathing slow and shallow, had a weak carotid pulse. Patient was placed on the stretcher and moved to the unit. On the way to the unit, I requested fire/rescue for assistance and a driver. For assistance, I got 2 teenagers, one of which knew CPR and the other did not. A couple minutes later, an older guy came up to drive. Before the older guy came up to drive, the patient was placed on the monitor, showing sinus bradycardia, HR 40, dropping. My partner was bagging the patient with an oral airway in place. One of the teenagers was holding cricoid pressure to reduce gastric distension. I also had been watching the monitor and CPR was initiated moments after he went into asystole. After a quick look to start an IV, I opted to start an IO due to lack of periphrial IV access. After I started that, I gave him one mg of epi and hung a bag of normal saline. At that point we were only about 5 minutes from the hospital and I had to call in a report. At that time, I moved to the head of the patient and directly after finishing report, tried to intubate. I wasn't able to visualize the chords, so we just continued bagging the patient. We were at the hospital about one minute after I tried to intubate. My partner and the 2 teenagers did everything they could do, no problem with them. I was just trying to find out if there was anything I could have done differently that would have possibly ended with a better outcome for this man. (The ER staff worked him for about 15 minutes before they pronounced him dead). Any input would be greatly appreciated. edited for grammatical error

  14. My curfew was the street lights. Mom didn't call my cell, she yelled my name. I played outside with friends, not online. If I didn't eat what mom made, I didn't eat. Hand sanitizer didn't exist, but you COULD get your mouth washed out with soap & your butt spanked & it was ok for the other neighborhood mamas to scold you if you did something wrong. Repost if you drank water out of a hose & survived!

  15. Ok, bed time... hopefully.

  16. Happy EMS week to all of my EMS facebook friends!

  17. My mom Wiped my tears... Hugged me tight... Watched me succeed... Saw me fall... Cheered me on... Kept me going strong... & drove me a little crazy at times. But Moms are a promise from God that you will have a friend forever! Put this on your status if you have or had a wonderful Mom you love!

  18. Ok EMS gods, it is not nice to pick on one crew. Spread the wealth please!

  23. I have actually started working with a county service and I really enjoy it. I still work at the transport company part time, but I don't feel nearly as stressed as I did. I have also switched partners. It's not a permanent solution, I know, but it will work for the time being. Thanks for the advice, everyone.

If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. -Habakkuk 2:3 This verse has given me hope many a times over the past several years, I hope it will do the same for someone else.
