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.
