A warning to the EMS Blogosphere

http://www.iemta.com/KEMSA%20Chronicle%20Article.pdf The above link is to an essay written by a Paramedic from the State of Kansas who got into a very large amount of trouble by being less than flattering in a blog post that he wrote about a specific patient.

A post worth reading

Kelly Grayson over at http://ambulancedriverfiles.blogspot.com has written a great article on a patient he had exhibiting Wolf Parkinson White syndrome. http://ambulancedriverfiles.blogspot.com/2009/05/little-cardiology-geekery.html His “Cardiology Geekery” was one of the best written and most educational articles on the topic that I’ve ever read.

Y’all need a taser. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/5364780/Knifeman-copied-scene-from-The-Shining-as-he-attacked-paramedics.html Glad that this kind of stuff doesn’t happen where I am much.

Lie Back and Do Whatever the Nice Officer Says

File this one under: “Life Training” So I’m on shift the other day and my soon-to-be wife calls me up and announces: “I just got tazed!!” and she seems happy about this. “Come again?” I asked. “I was down at the police department for training, and they asked if there were any more volunteers to […]
