The Handover is coming! – Deadline 9/21/2009!

Howdy everyone! I cannot wait for my chance to host the upcoming edition of The Handover Blog Carnival, the premier EMS blog carnival on the Interwebz. Look for some cool things that I’ll be throwing in there with what is already shaping up to be some great stories. I’ve been laughing pretty hard while reading them, so I know that you will too.The theme is “Funniest. Call. Ever.” and the theme relates to funny, humourous, and just plain strange emergency calls. However, we’re also opening up a general submission form to any EMS blogger. If you’ve got an EMS, Emergency Medicine, or medical post I’ll put it in.This is a great way to read some awesome content, learn some, laugh a lot, and meet some bloggers you may not know.Oh, and the deadline for submissions is 9/29/2009. The sooner you get them in the easier it is on me.Thanks everyone! Looking forward to your posts!

I am a paramedic trying to advance the idea that the Emergency Medical Services can be made into the profession that we all want it, need it, and know it deserves to be.

    Why do Ambulances Carry Epi-Pens?
    Interesting. I've never heard of ambulances carrying EpiPens. I've worked in Wisconsin and Tennessee. Both places have always allowed EMT-B to draw up from Epi ampules. However, when seconds count, I could see EpiPens being something EMTs and Paramedics could benefit from. It's just costly.

    Why do Ambulances Carry Epi-Pens?
    It's definitely faster and it's accurate. There's really no down side to it at all. Other than the fact that some people give it when it's not needed, but that's not dose related.

    Colorado CRNAs Vs. Virginia Physicians? An interesting feud for EMS
    Paramedics aren't educated or organized enough to pull anything like that off. Hell, you can't even protect your medics from dangerous hours, lack of downtime requirements, and horrific pay.

    They "choose" it because the administrative portion of billing for service is a nightmare. Who doesn't just want to clock in, do the job, and go home? Some of you people must've never set foot in a hospital or dealt with docs in any capacity. Pay your tuition and you'll make it through med school.
