(36:33) This week Ron studied CHF and asks “Why do they call it congestive heart failure?” He also had Exam III cardiology. He and Kelly discuss how traing for a code is different for nurses and paramedics.
Last week we talked about how everyone shouldn’t get oxygen and Ron mentioned his medical director sent out a protocol memo saying almost the exact some thing. Then there is a brief discussion of how great HCEC’s medical director Dr. George Kiss is.
On the ambulance this week Ron collected my first strip. He could actually look at it and know something was wrong and have an idea what it was.Saw his first use of CPAP and first NPA insertion.

This is a question for each of you.
Ron: Since you have been doing the schooling and have gone on a few calls, how has your view of EMS changed from your orginal thoughts of EMS in general? If so, what about?
Kelly: After all the years of schooling and the many calls you have run, has your thoughts or views on EMS as a whole changed, and if so, what about?
Love the podcast guys! Keep it up!!
Always enjoy the show … Kelly and I might be the first two paramedics to ever publicly admit we are not 12 lead experts and have room for improvement. Reassuring that Kelly strives to get better in this area, just as I do.
