  1. Thanks Ace, well noted.....the only transports I have been on have been a hip fracture, and to transport for a MRI. So there have been no emergancy transports, that is done by air. I just want to be accurate on my assesments. And as I dig myself a bigger hole for you to through me into, LOL. Thanks for your reply's, Rocket has already answered my questioned. We average about two calls a month, not a lot of time to practice ones skills. Cara.
  2. I should have been more specific with my question. I live in rural Montana and a lot of the pt's. we have are transports from one hospital to another. Time, anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours away. So the breathing with these pt's. are not labored, but shallow breather's, so thus my question before mentioned. I have only been doing this now for about 2 months and not have had the pleasure of dealing with a pt. with breathing difficulty, which would be easier to see the resp. rate and quality, which would tell me what interventions that are required to be done. Essentially, making sure that my reassessments are acurate throughout the transport. Cara
  3. Thanks for your replies, they have been helpful. Cara
  4. Hi everyone, What methods do you use to take resp. while transporting pt's. in an ambulance. I'm having difficultly assessing them while in-route to the hosp. It's too noisy for a steth. and a lot of times I can't see the pt's chest rise or fall. I have put my hand on their chest to feel for the rise and fall, but it still is pretty difficult. any technique that you can share would be great. Thank you for your time. Cara.
  5. Great little site. It only took about 30 minutes out of my life to go through......LOL

  7. Thank you for your input, he pulled out of it yesterday, just to tell his mother, my sister that he is going to do it again...So I guess it is only a matter of time untill he gets the job done.....I can't even imagine what my sister is going through since I have no children...Two doctors did sign off, so he can get the help he needs. For some reason Im not too emotionally upset, just only for what my sister has to go through and her husband and his sister.... Maybe it is because Im so far removed from the situation. Anyway....Thanks for your knowledge. Cara
  8. I was wrong on the welbruton it was Wellbutrin, that he took. They live in Oregon, so I'm out of the loop as to what is going on. Thank you Ridryder 911 for your response... Cara
  9. Good day everyone, I tried going into the chat to get your opinion, but my computer crashed and I had to restore my system. My nephew tried commiting suicide, with 40 some triple X Caffeine pills, and the rest was welbruton making it some 70 pills in total. He is 19 years old, my sister said the doctors are worried about, what she said, " Grand Mal Seizures," but after some research I think it is Grand Mal Status epileptius. So my question is what do you think his outcome will be? By the time my sister found out what he had done, all the meds were absorbed into his system. From what my sister told me is that Welbruton is a time release med...Any knowlegde that you may have on this will be most helpful... Thank You, Cara
