(55:38) Ron is starting to think he’s on “Survivor: Paramedic School” as classmates seem to be leaving in droves. He took is National Registry EMT-I skills tests this week, listen to learn how he did.
In EMS Operations he studied Crime Scenes and asks Kelly “How do you handle crime scenes? What about cases where you aren’t sure there is a problem? How often does this come up? How do you keep your awareness up? How do you balance safety and paranoia?”
Ryan Klackle – What do you think of private Ambulance services such as AMR? It doesn’t seem logical to only want to be treated by a single ambulance service. am i understanding the concept incorrectly? or is this just something that is just in Michigan. Also, what is the difference between a wilderness first responder and an EMT-B or EMT-I? Thanks! Love the Podcast
BJ – We have been having some…odd mega codes in our paramedic class and i was wondering what the two of your oppinions would be. Here is an example of one i had yesterday.
17yo Male that OD’s on grandma’s tricyclic antidepressants, in the garage where he get’s organophosphate poisoning and downs a bottle of benzodiazepines after getting bitten by a poisonous snake, then falls from a ladder and gets bilateral femur fractures?
Chris – Have either of you ever experienced EMS as a patient yourself? Without getting too personal , I’d like to hear about how this changed your views on patient care and comfort (if at all.) Did your medical knowledge comfort you or make you more anxious as a patient? Just curious.
Cam – I was just reading En Route and was curious if Kelly called out Dr. Bryan Bledsoe when he was on your show about glove flutter valves, as well as tape sticking to petroleum gauze? thanks
