  1. Funny thing, everyone was kind of freaked out by how hard she hit, so nobody offered. The following year, I wanted to make the slogan, "So much learning it will make your brain bleed" but was vetoed by the boss. 'zilla
  2. Still kicking! Although moved a thousand miles or so. Goodbye Ohio, hello Texas! ’zilla
  3. There is the "tyranny of distance" as it is referred to in combat medicine, where the tactical situation prolongs extraction of a patient to definitive care. I have seen tactical situations where an ambulance was parked 100 yards away but took 30 minutes or more to reach the patient because of safety concerns and volatility of a situation. For extracting the patient, who will do that when the officers on the SWAT teams are engaged in a search for the subject or explosive devices? That's not a setting the average street medic is trained to be in. TECC training and the Rescue Task Force concept
  4. We have great OB services, even high risk and NICU. 2 years ago we had a student at the class faint and get an epidural hematoma, so she got to meet our trauma service. (she was fine)
  5. That's right, boys and girls, we are back! Warmer weather for this one. Registration just opened and we expect it to fill within a week. Sign up! https://medicine.wright.edu/emergency-medicine/ems-cadaver-anatomy-procedure-lab

  7. Sadly, I am deployed this year, so I will miss the 10th CAP Lab for the first time. Sorry that I'll miss you. Dr. Tucker and his minions have everything well in hand, and it sounds like a good program this year. 'zilla
  8. This is a VERY dicey issue. There are ADA issues at play, as well as potentially union rules, state law, etc. This is one of those areas you do not want to try to figure things out on your own. Adverse personnel action could create significant liability exposure for the agency. I would do nothing without the help of human resources.
  9. Registration opens October 15. Going to try not to get blood on the ceiling this year.
  10. I've been heavily involved with this in our state and elsewhere. SSI has been around for a long time, but where we are changing the thinking is in not having the patient remain on the backboard once moved from point of injury to the stretcher. I've had emails from several states asking for our protocols, clinical justification, and training materials. NAEMSP came out with a position paper on it last year as well. The original position paper was pretty strongly worded about doing away with the LBB as much as possible, but a consensus document with ACS-COT was created, and it was softened to
