    The Sodium Trap

    An excellent read by FOAMFrat. An introduction to fluid resuscitation and cautions there of. https://www.foamfratblog.com/post/the-sodium-trap?fbclid=IwAR2dwx-AvRSw8gBB1GyPpl_Rwp2c-HeAc3-k6wkmxZ5jTFIioAjA9jSmrfY_aem_AcRQYH3b3e3NdPGZHu20QhrQnf7RGfqFKEh7PwwGIFcvOALtfrFuWkUV2uvPLy3exw9EHKNaxVvuCFKp1IMEiB2WHZSMmKFHfHCkdFHKwweZSw View the full article
  2. This podcast is a panel discussion from providers in Australia. Their EMS sounds like light years ahead of where I work. They utilize blood products, plasma, and can activate a trauma OR. It’s amazing to hear what other places are doing. Especially when you feel lost in your own career and wish to see your service progress. Please give it a listen and tell me what you think! TLDR (or didn’t listen): lives can be saved if all departments work together! RAGE Podcast – Resuscitology: Bleeding Patients View the full article
  3. Advanced airways in EMS are in heated debate today. There are two extremes. Give it or cut it. Some medical directors are granting crews RSI (rapid sequence intubation) in the field. While others are cutting intubation as a whole and utilizing devices like the iGel. There are so many combinations of medications you can use for induction in a chemically assisted intubation. The one that was recently brought to my attention was Ketamine. Ketamine has been a wonder drug in EMS. It has been beneficial in taking down the giant muscled bound tweeker that’s fighting a gaggle of police office
  4. Let’s talk about TXA and brain injuries. Maybe we can put to rest the suspicion that TXA creates further injury in patient’s with a TBI. TXA is an amazing tool to use for our trauma patients. There has been so much success TXA that there are trials to see how effective it is for GI bleeds. As with most medications new to a service (mine has had standing orders on TXA for about a year), there are always questions and concerns. One that continually comes forward is, “does TXA create further harm in a patient with a brain injury?” Curious and in an effort

  8. 2,000 law suits and appeals have been pushed forward against Johnson and Johnson. The state of Oklahoma has started proceeding in regards to damages done to the state. As stated in the New York Times; ” Oklahoma had said it would need $17 billion to repair the damage done by the epidemic. About 6,000 Oklahomans have died from opioid overdoses since 2000, according to officials there.” It is about time some one has step forward and pursued dealers in this rich man drug war!

  10. There was a time I was burnt out. Well, that’s not exactly true. There was a time that every three months I was burnt to the core. I wanted to quit. I wanted to go to nursing school. Hell, I even put in an application to Fed Ex. Unfortunately, there was one time that my burn out led to injuring a patient. You see, I was burning the candle from all ends. I was going through a terrible separation with a woman who had two kids I cared for and adored. I was a supervisor of a shift that was falling apart. I worked nights, went to school during the day, and
