  1. 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 else too (even those i haven't met). I wanted to let you know that as a result of all the amazing first responders, I'm inspired to be at least an EMT (and maybe eventually a paramedic or doctor) but I've got to finish high school first. Anyways, you all are amazing and cool people! I wish you all the best in life, and keep doing the awesome things you do. Don't lose hope when people aren't thankful, because you can be rest assured there is someone out there like me who appreciates everything you do and can't wait until they are old enough (21) to be an EMT. Sorry for the long post, and I hope this put a smile on your faces!

    A little lost

    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
  3. Hey guys and girls I advocated and pushed for mandatory education and training for EMT in crisis intervention. I wrote a resource guide for EMS Professionals The EMS Professional Rescuers Guide to Behavioral First Aide My hopes is many EMT and EMS pros can reduce injury and risk when dealing with hostile or a patient exhibiting crisis behavior. The crisis is never about the behavior. It's available in several electronic formats. barnes and Noble Nook > ( EMS Crisis Response Team Training Guide ) Amazon Nook > ( EMS Crisi Response Team Training Guide ) And for home computer PDF format.. on Lulu.com > ( EMS Crisis Response Team Training Guide ) Please take a few moments and read the education material its a proven process that deescalates hostile patients.
  4. Hello everyone, I am a member of a student team of engineers designing an automatic, portable CPR machine. This device could be positioned in public areas (similar to AEDs) and could be attached to patients, freeing medical personell to simultaneously move patients or tend other injuries. We really need to prioritize design characteristics (portability, adjustability, etc.), but without field medical experience, we're a bit in the dark! Would you be able to give us a hand by ranking the following CPR machine characteristics (in terms of importance) on a scale of 1-10? Thank you so much! If you have any other thoughts, we'd love to hear those as well! Form/Enclosure: Size - Weight - Appearance - Few components - Comfort (for patient and operator) - Adjustability to different body types - Operation: How fast it can by moved/applied - Simplicity of use - Ability to move patient while in use - Ability to monitor patient condition - Ability to automatically adjust to patient status - User Interface: Communication of instructions - Ability to manually adjust rate/force of chest compression, etc. - Ability to interface with ambulances, other medical equipment - Other: Weather resistance - Theft deterrence - Low maintenance required - Battery life -
  5. 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 qualifications/degrees (more than four) but excluded any not gained through the tertiary sector which are quite numerous, and was subsequently informed that I certainly qualified as a full member (though I cannot at the moment recall what level of membership), in which case the membership fees were some AU$300+ annually. That came as a complete shock, and I was somewhat flabbergasted given that I am not employed in OZ and therefore don't practice there (though this may change). This resulted in me not joining as I appreciated that for the fees asked for there was not a lot of value in return, which is a shame really. If membership also was part of registration much like it is with a regulatory body for nursing and medicine via AHPRA and the relevant boards, I could understand the fees but this is not the case. I feel that Paramedics Australia need to clearly disclose the fees and alongside the types of memberships available for which the applicant chooses. I am a member with multiple allied health organisations/associations including NZ Ambulance Association which charges far less in fees.
  6. So I'm a new EMT and I'm applying to a few companies. My only concern is the ambulance drivers license. I have a terrible past as a young adult with tickets. And I was just rear-ended last month due to a guy on the phone. I even have a friend who has an unpaid ticket on record. What will happen when we need to get our ambulance license? Will it be possible?
  7. 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.
  8. I need help locating any volunteer opportunities for an EMT-B in the City of Chicago. I am desperately seeking any opportunity not to loose my EMT-B skills and to continue with the EMS experiences that I've been having since I became an EMT a few weeks ago. I scoured the internet for ANY opportunity to volunteer and I literally could not find a single thing. I am going to be a full time student so I don't have time to work a job with a paid agency, and the CFD doesn't ostensibly use any volunteers and the city doesn't have any of its own ambulance departments, it just has an EMS division within the CFD. So my question is rather more of a plea. I would like to know from anyone who has had any experience as an EMT in Chicago how I can continue to volunteer. There must be some sort of outlet, I can't be the only person who wants to volunteer their EMS services in Chicago. It would seem ludicrous to me if a city with 2.7 million people didn't need any volunteers. What are ANY possible ways that I, as an EMT-B, can volunteer within the city of chicago to provide EMS services? I also completed my CEVO course so I would be willing to drive an ambulance. Is it at all possible that the CFD would take on a volunteer EMT-B (not a firefighter) just for their EMS division? Or are all EMTs in the EMS division firemen. Anyway any advice, suggestions, or overall comments would be immensely helpful, as I would like some sort of direction to help me on my search and hopefully find some sort of answer before I move at the end of the summer. Thanks!!!
  9. Hello everyone, I'm working on a project to equip my service with emergency response bikes. We cover a lot of "moving events" during which we need to send EMTs very quickly through a dense crowd. We also cover a wide variety of events where we would need vehicles smaller than cars or trucks, yet providing a better response range than a walking response team. In that regard, I'm looking for bike equipments: bags, lights/siren and bike marking. A pair of bikes should board first aid equipments as well as basic vital parameter apparatus, and a 3l bottle of oxygen with BVA and masks. The idea would be to find something like the UK EMT bikes with bags on the rear and by the front wheel. Of course I'd like bags and bike to be the color of my service, as it seems they got some custom ones: Funfact: One of our districts chose the "Segway" solution which ends up pretty nice for public relations and quick response, but they're too expensive, heavy, and require some training. Enjoy:
  10. Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me, I am a EMT-B in Iceland and I want to become a paramedic and they don't offer that in Iceland. It looks like where ever I look I always hit a wall, most common is that I have to become a EMT-B again and I need to be an american citizen. If anyone knows a school or program for me that would be great BR Anna
  11. Hello There Everyone! My name is Andrew. I am an EMT-B In NYS. I've been in this business for Four years (I'm Most likely a baby in some of your eyes), three as a certified EMT. I Work in a very, very high call volume (total near 90,000 calls per year for the company). I look foreward to interacting and getting to know Y'all. -Brotherlog63 (If you come to work and dont learn something new, you should most likely rethink what you are doing or how you are acting.)
  12. Sorry to post this in General, but there I could find no suitable subforum in International. After a discussion with a friend about international recipricocity (I am researching Canadian-American), I find myself inordinately curious: What kind of, if any, recipricocity do American EMTs enjoy in Norway, and vice versa. Has anyone here worked in Norway, or know anything about their EMS system(s)? What do you think would be necessary for an American B or P to do so? Thanks, Novice
  13. I will be taking my NREMT (FL) for the second time in 4 weeks. Is there an online source that is reliable and is a help? I did a couple before and honestly I was in awe when I did not pass the first time. My time is tight if for some reason I do not pass it this time. Open for ANY advice! thanks
  14. Has anyone here received their PCP through JIBC and then transferred to EMT certification in Alberta? How did the reciprocity process work out for you? Thanks, H
  15. I am an EMT-B and I want to volunteer for the FDNY BLS units. I heard that if I sign up volunteering in some stations, I can take a BLS bus. If someone knows about it, please give me some information.
