Hi all, So I wanted to ask opinions on back braces. I'm a new EMT and I for whatever reason keep struggling with my posture when lifting. I know I need to work and practice it and have done so but I'm still struggling ever so slightly. I was considering trying out a back brace. Not long term, but just maybe to see if it keeps me in the right position until I get it on my own. Does anyone have any advice or even personal experience with this? Im open to anything that may be helpful. I don't want to be the idiot who harms myself or good forbid my partner or paitent. Thank you!
Hello folks I wanted to start a discussion about ambulance safety, specifically about transporting pediatric patients in ambulances. This should be a safe space for EMS workers to discuss this topic and be free to admit what you do not know. I have learned so much in the past 3 years on the topic, from US ambulance operations to similar issues in other countries. I have access to the top experts on the subject from NIOSH, NHTSA, Pediatrics researchers and professors, equipment manufacturers like Ferno, Quantum, and IMMI. Lets talk! I will start with something I didn't know, that I know now.
