  1. Do I change the sheets? Never, I'm married why would I ever change the sheets I...Oh wait. At work? Oh yeah definitely. And on that note Scaramedic is running back into oblivion.
  2. When I started on this website Dust had an avatar of Lahey from Trailer Parks Boys. For the longest time I always thought that was him. It wasn't until I actually watched the show (on his advice) that I realized I was an idiot. Thanks for that Dust, I love that show and the movies that followed. EMS has lost another of it's Old Guard. The ones whose passion for EMS helped to bring it into the light. The ones that paved the way for those of us that came later. We all owe a debt to those who came before. The ones that help Medics grow beyond ambulance drivers, and drove us towards better education and higher standards for ourselves. Dust had a passion for medicine, both EMS and Nursing. He constantly spoke of improving ourselves as a profession and as caregivers. Through education and not training. Understanding why a medication works physiologically not just because a protocol says to give it. His standard of education is something we should all strive for in our careers. Dust, I know you have found the peace you deserve. I send you off with a glad heart knowing that your pain is behind you. Thanks for letting me get to know you a bit and thank you for the wisdom you passed on. Peace, Marty
  3. Wow, I go away for a few years and the place goes to hell. Donating now. Fight the Good Fight!
  4. How would a dispatcher code this??? Priority one, Abdominal pain? Priority one, Hemorrhage?? Field treatment?? Do you bring in the tape to show the Doc? Kind of like bringing in the snake so the Doc gets the right antivenin.
  5. Ughh, where to start? First off the amount of Morphine a pt can handle is based on a ton of factors. Are they chronically on MS? I once had a Chronic Pain pt on 400mg of MS a day. Do you really think 5mg is going to affect this pt in the least? Are they in a great amount of pain? Burn victims can require large doses of MS. To simply say that the dose should be 5-10 is wrong and feels an awful lot like cookbook Medicine. $5K???? I could put together a kit like that for the cost of the bag and maybe a few hundred more just by 'procuring' what I need. Only someone NOT in the field could spend that much money. Laryngoscopes, ET's and BVM's??? Oh My!!!! So it's the end of the world and Randy Rescue is going to intubate patients, then what? Bag the patients until they rebuild the hospitals? This is the problem with the 'survival nut' culture. They spend too much time preparing for the worst and then forget that without modern technology most of their stuff is useless. In a REAL world scenario if you need a vent in major disaster you probably are going to die. We will not be working arrests in a world ending scenario. Hell, I won't be working period. I'll consider a meteor impact my two weeks notice and I'll take my chances with the rest of the wandering hordes.
  6. Personally I am hoping for ZOMBIES!!! The original Dawn of the Dead kind not the fast moving remake Zombies. This is the reason I am stocking up on the big 3, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms! Zombie Squad - Rednecks with guns, scarier than Zombies actually!!
  7. I knew I should have pulled out!!! :evil:
  8. I'm sorry I have really forgotten what an EMERGENCY is. I am too busy running on people who think a headache or a fever of 100F is an emergency.
  9. Am I really the only one missing the irony that it is two Hispanic individuals who are attempting to protect our borders (right or wrong) and that it is the lilly white Berkley douche bag who is raising such a fuss? Also one of the Agents is named P. Villa!
  10. I googled 'Fleshlight' and found this site. Thanks, AK! :roll:
  11. There is no deep dark secret in regards to Admin, it is simply a privacy issue. He is currently a pre-op transsexual. He has been taken estrogen and other female hormones. He is on the list for his surgery soon and will re-appear as Mrs Administrator, or maybe Mrs Garrison.
  12. Welcome to chat loser!! :evil:
  13. I do not know specifics on this one. If I remember right from working summer help at a large paper mill, in order to open/close large breakers of like 100,000 volts you have to charge up a breaker to overcome the resistance to open or close. It looks like to me he was priming the breaker and when it finally closed it shorted and basically vaporized him. Nasty but probably painless way to go. Imagine an electric chair times a 100. Sorry AK, I do not know of any other links, someone sent it to me. It is basically a guy getting fried by high voltage.

  15. The only multi-use tool I carry is the one your sister likes so much!
