Scenarios. A lot of EMS, a little Einstein

A while back ago I had a kick where I did a scenario-based EMS ethics piece that took a look at a possible situation that could be faced by some Paramedics and asked readers what they would do in that case. The response was pretty good. You should add your opinion here. I use a […]
