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
Hey, All. I'm posting this in hopes that someone can help me find an answer key for the AMLS PRE test. The reason why I'm looking for the answers are so I can go through, see what I got wrong, and what I got right, so when I go in for the class, I have a more firm idea of what I know vs what I think I know vs what I don't know. My issue, a lot of the questions and answers on the version 1.11 (is there an updated version?) don't really seem to make sense with each other. I even went through it with one of the physicians I work with who is respected, knows her stuff, and on the same ones, her and I both agreed that something isn't right. So, if I can go through the answers, it can give me a good jump off point to start researching stuff, and sort of see which direction the class will be going. If your first inclination is to respond with something that's rude, or smart.....just do us all a favor, and don't.
I just got a part time job working as a "Industrial Health and Safety Technician" at a large tobacco processing plant. It is a really awesome experience because in addition to the normal medical side of safety, I have the opportunity to learn about equipment and machinery safety and help make policies, perform drug screens, run a medical clinic, etc. My question is does anyone know if any similar setups utilize ALS skills? Although I am an ALS provider with my EMS agency, at the plant I am only functioning as an EMT-B with limited drugs since we have no MD medical director. I am sure somewhere ALS providers are used in the industrial setting with a medical director, but I haven't been able to find much on the topic. Interested to see if anyone has any experience/knows more about this?
