  1. Hey guys I have a question on how to become a flight nurse. So I already have an EMT background completed. I tried to apply for a bachelor in Nursing but I didn’t get in. And now I don’t know what to do. There is a school near me to become an RN and there’s another school that offers the paramedic program. Which route do you guys recommend I take? I also have the other option of trying to apply again to the school of bachelor in nursing but it will take a year until I find out if I get in or not. What do you all suggest I do? Should I wait to hear back from that school again or should I go for
  2. 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

  4. Hello Everyone, I am a civilian Critical Care Paramedic with a question for our Military Medic brothers and sisters. Do you feel your military medical training is aqueduct to operate as a Paramedic in the civilian population? This has been a long standing question I have had. I have worked with many military medics who are frustrated by the limited role they are given when transitioning to civilian EMS. I do share the thought that military medic are underutilized in the civilian setting when only being given an EMT level certification. That being said, it has always been my belief t
  5. 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!

  6. 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

  9. This study will have two versions written about it. This version is my “cut the fat” version I am trying encapsulate in this blog. As well, with my venture in medical free lance writing, I will have a “medical education” category for those who want the juicy morsels of dense medical language. With out further wait… here is sepsis study on a plate. Sepsis is a hot button topic in the world of prehospital medicine. There has been alot of literature put out by hospitals that declare more than 50% of in hospital deaths are due to multiple organ death (MODs), which is the ultimate deathly

    Trauma Library

    If you haven’t checked out Life in The Fast Lane, you HAVE to give it shot. This site’s ECG library helped me not only get through medic school, but also helped me learn what I was seeing on strange 12-leads my first year as a medic. I receive their email updates to keep myself informed, but it had been awhile since I’ve visited their site. They now have a library of just about any emergency medical topic you can think of. I was extremely impressed with their trauma library! Please stop by and check them out! Trauma Library View the full article
  11. True story behind the title… I am a huge advocate for prehospital intubation. Though, I do strongly believe in good equipment, drugs, lots of practice (more than just simulators) and fail-safe options (iGel, etc). Every service has a different type of patient population. Every service has access to different equipment/protocols. Each patient has a different airway. Grants have helped many services obtain video laryngoscopes. Granted, less ambulances, the greater chance you will have to cool toys in your airway bag. Much like the cardiac monitor was a luxury in the past, I see these de
  12. I don’t know how it is in other service areas, but my service is unable to obtain ANY dopamine… what-so-ever! I’m not sure if it is a manufacture problem (think back to 2010 when a huge company of our ACLS drugs changed to erectile dysfunction pills over night). Or maybe our hospitals are having an ordering issue. The real situation is, I LOVE DOPAMINE! As a new medic, I was terrified of it. The confusing dosage. The simple down and dirty math equation that escaped me in the opportune moment of a ROSC patient. Even it’s shiny aluminum bag made it more intimidating than other meds. Why aluminu

  16. I'm an EMT Student trying to decide what path to follow. I know for a fact that I want to do EMS, and nothing else, but the best paying jobs in my area are for FF/EMT-P. There are ambulance districts around me, but pretty much all but one pays less than $15 an hour. I really don't have any desire to go putting on turnout gear and climbing up ladders, but I have heard that many firefighters are on the ambulance majority, if not all the time. I wouldn't even mind doing medical calls on the fire truck and extrications. The FD jobs are very hard to get, but is it worth it? I don't want to be stuck
  17. Currently, I work full-time with an EMT partner. When it comes to airway, I am a believer in prehospital intubation. Though, when a call is out of control, and airway is immediate, I love my back up airways and an aggressive EMT. Now, with that said, I do not believe that iGel needs to be the first line of airway protection on an ALS truck. If we lose intubation, we lose an amazing tool as paramedics. There are several districts across the United States that are taking intubation away from their medics and handing them the iGel. Their explanation for the decision is simply a lack of education
  18. This post is for all of your potential EMT's PAramedic's who are discouraged because you have taken the test and didn't make it. I have been an Iowa Paramedic for 10 years, outside the state of Iowa I am an I-99. I have taken the NREMT Paramedic test 13 times total. I was to the point of that if I didn't pass before 3/31/18 I would lose my paramedic and go down to an AEMT losing half of my skills. I had tried everything you can think of I used Medic skills, EMT test prep, bought practice books for the test. Bought a book from the school that I got my BS degree in that was for the NREMT. My nex
  19. Hello,I'm a student paramedic currently studying paramedic science at the University of East Anglia (in England). I was hoping that someone might be able to offer some information about the possibility of an ambulance placement in Scandinavia, Norway in particular? In my 3rd year, before qualifying I'll have the opportunity for an elective placement for about a month. I haven't admittedly been able to find much information on the ems system in Norway but I'm aware that it is staffed by paramedics and EMT's with similar qualifications to those in the UK. Any more information anyone might have t
  20. http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20170525/attorney-delnor-nurse-was-tortured-raped-during-hostage-situation Health care workers have the highest incident of being assaulted. It’s an average of 52%. That is just what is being reported. There is still just a part of our culture that doesn’t report because it’s “just part of the job.” It’s not. Support the laws of attacking a health care worker is equivalent of attacking a police officer. Stand up for yourself. We are not society’s punching bag. View the full article
  21. 1.)How old were you when you decided or thought about becoming a paramedic 2.) What was your college experience? 3.) How many years did it take to graduate? 4.) What could you give to someone going into the business? 5.) what is your American dream? 6.) is it achievable? 8.) if you could live your life all over again would you become a paramedic again? Why ke why not? 9.) Was this your first choice of a career? 10.) was there a time when you wanted to give up? If you answered these questions thank you so much. I'm writing a college a
  22. Hi guys! So I've noticed previous posts about this and have researched it for hours. Unfortunately most posts on here are rather old. I'm hoping some of you have new info! I'm currently a certified paramedic in Ontario and Alberta, looking into the process of moving to the US. Any kind of information (as current as possible) would be awesome! Thanks!
  23. Hey everyone! Just thought I'd come back since I got a lot of positive/good advice last time I posted. I am currently on the downslide of EMT-B and looking for preparation advice about Medic school. I am pushing medic off till January to do A&P because I think it will help me a lot (I took Human Bio so I technically don't have to) with medic school. What other things should I prepare for/focus on while I'm in EMT-B and A&P? I've heard medic school is a nightmare.. Any class I should take beforehand? Or book I should buy?.. Etc
  24. In my ten years with fire and ems, I have worked in a variety of settings; city fire, hospital ems, ICU medic, education, leadership, etc… Recently, my wife and I moved our family to a rural community. We live in the county seat with is a population of 6,000 citizens. The county is large and has a variety of rural population and industry. The two of us (she is an RN) where recruited from a large metro city to come down here. It was tough to move from a city we loved, but we felt unsettled with our jobs, and were given a contract we couldn’t refuse. We weren’t accepting positions in our dream
  25. Hello all! I am new here but I have been reading threw the internet trying to find some help with something. I have been working on a program that I have been using over the last year to track my patient contacts as well as terms and stats on my training complete with reports to see when I would be cleared to take my test (as my school was constantly losing my stuff). So the more I worked with it and the more I learned about my needs as a paramedic student I decided that I should clean up the code and make a public version for my classmates. Well sadly they are not computer savvy and did not t
