This week we talk about Ron’s first test and getting his shots finished up. Kelly gives some insight into what the National Registry test questions are like as well.

Then we go into taking vitals and Kelly gives a really great tip on palpating a pulse. We talk about medical control. How Kelly contacts them and when he does.

In the gear section we discuss blood pressure cuffs. And from he book and class we talk about DNRs and how Kelly deals with that one family member who wants you to do the resuscitation anyway.

Update:

There is a DNR Bracelet in Texas as well.
