  1. Everything has a beginning. An inception of an idea where someone had the ambition to create it. Sometimes by accident. Like so many people in existence today, they were pure mistakes by their parents who had to many glasses of jim beam and there was a lack of entertainment on television. Now two asshole created another asshole who is going to create more assholes because creating assholes feels good. Even though the statement is slightly jaded, I still feel justified to say it. But then again, in my trade, we don’t always interact with the best of characters. So, the writer in me always crea
  2. So being a senior in high school, I was wondering what courses and programs/clubs are a good bonus to have along with Bio and Physics for EMT as I want to go into Paramedic training. I already have First Responder Training which includes advanced first aid and BLS. I have partial access to the scope of practice for a MFR and I am also going into EMS cadets. I am not sure if I will get any extra training for EMS cadets but I do know I am allowed to go on ridealongs with the EMTs. Is there anything else that may make me more of a choice to be accepted into an EMT training course and further my t
  3. I'm a paramedic FTO and preceptor, I wrote this ebook and have been given out to my interns and new hires for the past year with great success they learnt the ebook like the back their hand and become great medics. If you want something that might assist you be a better, quicker and more efficient paramedic check this out. Spread the word! https://bit.ly/29Em0cv - Link modified so that a portion of the money spent on the book will benifit EMT City. - Admin
  4. Hey, I wanted to know, if I get qualified as a Paramedic in Israel, if I came back to England would there be a way to just take an exam and be qualified here or would I have to take the entire course again?

  6. Newbie here and new Paramedic grad. Passed boards and applying for jobs, but having a tough time. Have a BS in Bio and EMT-B but no experience as EMT-B or as a Paramedic. Applying for every job where no exp. is required; including all surrounding areas, but can't even get an interview. Any suggestions/ideas? Anyone from the Charlotte area that may have some connections? Am willing to start at the bottom, work any shift. Need to pay bills. TIA

    An apology.

    I’m sorry this has happened to you today. I am sorry you feel this way. I am sorry that you were born unlucky and suffer from this illness. I am sorry that they did this to you. I am sorry your bad day had become a turning point in my career. As the compassionate face expresses concern and empathy, the same person sweating over you will be receiving a high five in the ambulance bay. Sometimes your bad day will turn around the attitude for a burned out medic. It is what makes us good at our jobs and keeps our skills sharp and passion fresh. Our passion to help people. It’s the need to be want
  8. http://www.math.nus.edu.sg/~matlmc/Allegory_cave.pdf I have read this in past for my first degree in Literature (unemployment). As future leaders in emergency services, it makes me happy to see this added to the curriculum. In a constantly developing trade, it is important to practice critical thinking in an academic sense. Plato is using this metaphor to describe how people are educated. Everyone is taught to think in a special respect based on their upbringing. As described by the shadows on the wall being played by the marionettes or instructors, this is a metaphor on what people are taug
  9. I've been an NYC EMT a little over 3 years, a year and a half working transport @ Midwood Ambulance and a year and half working 911/Core @ NSLIJ. I did a small stint @ FDNY academy in between that time. I ended up resigning. I was just recently hired at Transcare's 911 division. my supervisor tried VAX'ing me but the FDNY denied me clearance to work for an unknown reason. Now I can't work 911 until the FDNY figures out why. It's been over 3 weeks. Has anyone been through this? And how much longer will it take for the FDNY to finally clear me? For what reasons would they deny someone clearance
  10. Hello All, I am currently studying Paramedic Science at Northampton University in the UK and I am very curious about the following matter: It is my ambition to become a paramedic BUT it is an even larger ambition for me to move to America to become a paramedic! I would like to move to Chicago as soon as I graduate and get a job at a busy firehouse! I have also spoken to my family about this and they are going to support me the whole way! My point being that will I have to move to America and undertake the different classes that USA born paramedics have to do (IV Line, EKG's etc.)? I also ha
  11. Hey everyone! Glad I found you all, from what I've gathered from some brief browsing, this seems like a good place to get advice on the world of EMS! So, I'd thought I'd just directly ask this community some on my questions, as I'm a little on the fence about pursuing EMT and Paramedic Should I become an EMS student and eventually an EMT? Also, will my age hinder me greatly? What are the challenges of studying to be an EMT that I should be aware of? If you're concerned about the emotional and mental strain of the job, but know it is a challenge you want to try and overcome, should yo
  12. I'm going to be signing up for the NREMT paramedic exam soon and I was wondering, what are some good studyguides/websites to use to help prepare me? Thanks

  14. Hi, My name is Patrick and I'm a 20 year old EMT-Intermediate student here in Germany. After finishing my German Baccalaeurate (High School Diploma) this spring I'd like to attend Med. School. Due to the high entrance criteria over here I'll need to wait a couple of years in order to get in. Now I'm thinking about starting Paramedic training in the US this fall/next spring. I'm thinking of a 2+2 program which would entitle myself to work as a Paramedic after the first 2 years... 2nd half could be pre-med school curriculum. Before Med School I'd love to gain some hands on patient expe
  15. Sorry I havent posted in a while. My life has been crazxy busy.... So, I am giving a street drug lecture as a conference... as I am wont to do on occasion, and a thought occurred to me. We are seeing these "Vaping" stores, products, patients explode in numbers in this area... an exponential increase in this nich market. Even among health care providers. Now I am NOT going to speculate the pro's and con's over traditional tobacco use....But I have a question. It seems to me only a manner of time before someone puts any number of illicit adulterants in the liquid they use for this. My gue
  16. Hello everyone, I'm interested in becoming a paramedic and don't really know the ropes of the field. I love to learn and would want to learn as much as possible in this field to become the best paramedic I can be.
  17. My agency is seeking to improve the rescitation performance in the field, and we are generally dissasitified with the standard merit badge courses. How many of you provider either: 1- An in house alternative to ACLS or PALS/PEPP or; facilitate higher performance in resuscitation Or; 2- An in house supplement to ACLS or PALS/PEPP to facilitate higher performance in resuscitation If so, could you relate any specifics (on list or off) as far as course length and content? Also , if you are a NREMT state, what do you do about NREMT recertification. For the record, we are NOT loo
  18. In 5 short months I will be sitting in my first Paramedic class at our local Community College. One of the best programs in the area honestly, and they are developing a hell of a reputation for themselves locally. I have been an EMT for a year or so now, enabling me to have run enough CIty-ALS time to work with a medic quite a bit, run some decent calls, and learn a few things. Yet I have not been on the truck long enough to obtain bad habits. I'm one for preparation. So my question for you so far, is what can I do to prepare? My EMT-B book explains the processess of ALS Assist with tubes
  19. Hi Everyone, I really wanted to get this out, but I wasn't sure where to post this. I'm new (but only posting once). I'm currently in high school and I've been having a lot of uncontrollable seizures which have required medical attention at least 8 times, so as you can imagine, I've met a lot of paramedics/emts/firefighters. I just wanted to thank all the EMTs, paramedics, and firefighters who devote their lives to helping others. I'm sorry that you guys don't get as much appreciation as you deserve. But, I'm so grateful for the paramedics who once saved my life, and for everyone els
  20. Hi! I'm new to the site so this is really exciting I finished up my EMT basic class in December 2012 and was NREMT certified in January. I'm debating whether or not to go straight into a paramedic program or try to get a job as an EMT first. I live in Washington so what do I need to do for either? Advice and suggestions greatly appreciated
  21. Hi! People from different countries please write about ambulance service in your countries. 1. who works in ambulance? (paramedic teams?, phisician teams? Nurses? nurse=paramedic?) 2. What drugs do you have and which drugs you can use without a doctor (especially write about sedative/anestetics, muscle relaxants,....)? 3. Are there any drugs that you can administer only after "call" to a doctor? 4. Which procedures can you do without doctor (intubation, cardioversion,...)? 5. EM studies - paramedic studies (years?), team leader-ambulance nurses (EM?/anestesia? specialisati
  22. I'm a clinical practitioner on contract based in Asia (where I have been for over a decade). I contacted Paramedics Australia around the time there was discussion about changing the name from Australian College of Ambulance Professionals (ACAP) about joining/membership. I felt that the site and what it offers members is appealing. The submission of the completed application form results in a determination by Paramedics Australia as to the type of membership and consequently the fees attached to that level of membership. As required on the application form I listed my university qualifi
  23. I already have my EMT-B. I am planning on attending my local school in Southern PA as soon as I get back from my Family. I am 20 years old, will be 21 in July. I would like some advice on the field. The Do's/Dont's or things I should keep up on so that way, when I finish school I wont have too much trouble finding a spot with a company.
  24. Hello, I am looking for a Paramedic Preceptor, preferably in the Northern CA area. Can be with an ambulance or fire dept. I graduated from NCTI last May and completed my Clinicals at St. Josephs Hospital in Stockton this last august. I have still not been placed by my program due to the overwhelming amount of students compared to the amount of preceptors available through the school. I live in Modesto and currently work full time as a Fire Engineer. I have ALS and BLS ambulance experience of about 1.5 years. I am really eager to get going on this so if you are a preceptor or know of one,
  25. Well, this is it. We have completed our final skills exam and tomorrow is the final exam for my Paramedic Class. We started one year ago, with 39 people in our class. Since then, we have had all of our class time, in class skill training, 500 hours of clinical time, tears, debates, hypertensive crises, laughter, fun, frustration, testing, (ugh) mega-codes and merit badges. Now, we have 14 people taking their final exam. Please pray for us. If you have any advice, I'll be here at the computer studying.
