Tonight we came back after almost a year of not being around and letting the dust settle over the entire studio. After we got the dust swept out:
We talked a little bit of the show’s absence, being gone since June of last year when I took the job as health officer at Ingersoll Scout Reservation and the subsequent enrollment in my AEMT class (along with other classes) at the neighborhood community college. I’m in the middle of my clinical time and getting ready to start my AEMT intern ride time.
Then we talked about an advertisement campaign from British Columbia with a tagline of “Imagine a world without Paramedics“.
We then talked about how the Reno EMS Association looks over patients post discharge with great results.
Then we talked about how a current bill in Idaho will allow for EMS agencies to bill for calls that don’t require transport to the ER.
Some agencies are now giving TXA pre-hospital. Which ones are they and what is TXA?
I almost flew off the handle when I heard about a dispatcher in Cleveland, OH telling a 911 caller that no ambulances were available when his wife was having a MI.
We went over EMS1’s “Top 10 tips for learning pharmacology“.
Then we found out about a new AED that is getting ready to come on the market for millenials. It gives them a “warm fuzzy feeling” while working an arrest.
It felt great to be back behind the microphone after a long absence!
