Shoutout to JEMS and Dr. Wesley – Everyone should read this

I couldn’t have said this better myself, no really, I couldn’t have. Dr. Wesley, a physician heavily involved in prehospital care who writes extensively in JEMS Magazine too square aim at the Miami Study entitled “Prehospital Intubations and Mortality: A Level 1 Trauma Center Perspective.” that was published somewhere by someone. You can read more about it in his article.

This was the study that said that Paramedics and EMS people in general kill people when we intubate them

Well, Dr. Wesley doesn’t agree with that. He reviewed the study and posted it up in JEMS

My favorite part of the article? This quote:

“This is one of worst, most biased examples of pseudo science you’re likely to read”

If I had an EMS 2.0 hat, I’d give it to ya. Good Job Dr. Wesley. Go read it, then go wonder about the things reported as “science” that drive our profession.

    Kudos to Dr. Wesley. The worst part about this is how many people who read the origional article believe it as the gospel.

    Aside from the skewed reporting, I'd love to see an anesthesiologist intubate outside their cushy OR's, upside down in a crushed vehicle. Hell, lets make it easy and see them do it in the back of a moving bus running code 3 to the hospital. pffft.

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.

    Stop Feeding the EMS Tee Trolls
    I may take you seriously when you learn proper grammar and spelling. Until then, here's a lesson: It's either 'Don't take it TOO hard' or 'Don't take it To HEART' depending on what you were trying to say.... It's not 'fetal mind' it's 'feeble mind' and 'You're worried not 'your worries' If you are going…

    Oh your that guy who thinks he stands out above all others in our profession and feels he has "seen the shit" LOL. Your "combat vet" and "20+ years" in EMS make you very suspect simply by how you just presented yourself. How old are you? Its seems those who say they have seen more…

    Apparently someone is wearing them because people keep trying to sell them. I have to imagine if no one was buying them they'd be long gone by now. Am I blaming any of EMS's problems on a t-shirt? No, not by a long shot. However if I saw a medic wearing one of those shirts,…

    Didn't take long for the usual proverbial dick measuring post to come out. Thanks for your service, but you could use a healthy dose of professionalism. Of course people aren't wearing this garbage at work but if they're still wearing it in public, then it obviously identifies you as EMS. The shit is tacky, and…

    I spent 30 years as an EMT and I own a paddling shirt( did field testing for AED)plus a DNR t shirt worn only during drinking excursions at EMS conferences. Yup some of those shirts are dumb but what the heck it stimulates someone's economy. But here in the big city we have folks we…
