(27:11) Ron missed the first week of school because off EMSWorld Expo, so the guys talk about what happen there. Answering questions like, “What’s the most memorable thing that happen to you at the expo?”, “See any cool gadgets at the show?” and “What’s it like to be kilted in Vegas?”
Totally off topic, but a burning question – do you remove fishhooks?
Our medics have been doing this “forever” except there’s one small problem – it’s not in our protocols. (and apparently our medical director was livid when the paramedics & EMT-I’s admitted to doing this)
We have a rural practice – over an hour by land to a community hospital, over an hour by air to a level 2 trauma center.
I’m an Emergency Medical Responder currently, but even I realize there is a difference between a fishhook in the finger, just through the skin, and one embedded in an eye or a “true impalement” Like a shark hook in the gut.
I would like to get both your takes on this.
Although I had considered myself fairly internet savvy, I have no experience in the blogosphere. After listening to the Newbie podcasts, I then started listening to the EMS Garage podcasts.
I see the websites of ems1.com, JEMS, Happy Medic, TOTWTYTR, but I am painfully inexperienced with the whole blog world. I have also never heard of “RSS feeds.”
The Oregon EMS conference is coming up and is actually the three days prior to my EMT-B 105/106 accelerted course beginning.
I need help connecting with the blogosphere community, especially in my area. I plan on attending the conference as a student, which is acceptable as long as I show my registration, but I will be attending before every stepping foot inside of a classroom.
I fount the OregonEms.Org’s facebook and requested to join their group.
Basically, what I need is help beginning my hopefully long-term connection with the EMS online “scene”, especially local. It would be great to connect on the internet with some of the attendees of the conference so I can have someone to meet once I get to Salem, if at the very least to give me an EMS welcome, hi, hug, or high-5. I am nervous, brand new, and have no resources. With the ridiculous amount of information I have devoured in the preceeding months, I am sure this is for me.
Please help connect me to “scene”, I know its out there, in full force.
