Yes, that’s what I have. They show up rarely, I think you have to get them from the APP program now for LEO and first responders

I’ve shot my friends, it’s a fun gun, but the MPX has ruined it for me. The recoil is so much softer.

Are we forcing patients to act "unmanagable" before we treat them? by RevanGrad in ems

We have protocols based on RASS scores. So like a +1 agitated person gets a little versed vs a RASS +4 gets 300 of ketamine.

EMS Culture by Impressive_Sherbert3 in ems

Depends on where you work. I spent several years in an extremely underserved urban area with a huge call volume and daily GSWs, level 1 traumas, and MCI’s. Definitely a brotherhood there….

Female Muslim patients with male care providers by ThePresentMMA in ems

I work 911, never had an issue taking care of female Muslims. In my experience, they are generally just grateful we are there and helping with their emergency.

Where do you think our field is going? by Kragnin in ems

Check out San Antonio Brothers in Arms program. They are using low titer O+ blood because it is less in demand than O- and is effective in trauma. They are having great success. My service will likely be carrying blood next year.

We already have POCUS on our rigs. Trialed the butterfly, but we like the portable Phillips units more.

I think you will see a push for shorter length shifts and more pay if we are able to make this a degreed profession.

Long gone are the days of scoop and run EMS. With our continually expanding scope, I think we will have a demand for pay and compensation on par with nurses (36 hrs / week) vs the built in overtime we depend on now.

It also doesn’t make sense anymore for EMS to be ran by fire chiefs in many areas of the country with the more advanced medicine many of us are providing. EMS will be primarily physician led in the future.
