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 to offer on the EMS system in norway would be really great, aswell as any information about the opportunity to shadow/experience in norway :)!Thanks for any help anyone might be able to offer :)!
To all EMS colleagues, Need input from the #firstresponder, #fire and #EMS communities for a school survey looking on how organizations may or may not use public relations. If you're interested in participating in this short, anonymous survey, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to send you the link. Thank you, Rich
Our station is involved in a study trying to introduce and test the capabilities of Telemedicine in Germany. It's actually a fairly new idea over here since EMS has been pysichian-led for the past 40 years. The data is sent via cellular network only, not digital radio. There are two pysichians available at the dispatch centre, which receive the vitals on our monitor (NiBP, SpO2, live ECG, 12-leads, etCO2), we can send images, they can direct a camera in the back of our ambulance, and of course talk to us via headset. In case the patient is critically ill or severly injured, the ground-based pysician or HEMS would still be dispatched. Now I'm curious on how you work with Telemedicine and if you do at all. By what means would you send the information? What sort of information do you send? Can you send e.g. 12-leads or are you only able to consult with the doctor? What sort of doctor is that , where is he based (ED or somewhere else)? For what sort of emergency or medication would you call in and does that depend on your level of training? Do you have protocols covering most areas or do you have to call in often? Is the equipment reliable, how is the network or radio coverage? What do you do in case the radio breaks down and a patient needs treatment? Just generally, how are your experiences? Would you prefer working in another system without direct medical control? Are there even systems using independent practitioners in the U.S.? I understand that there will be a broad range of answers, just give me an idea on how you work with the technology. I've recently watched the first season of Emergency! so that's basically as much as I know I'll also be happy to answer your questions. Take care
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
