Irish Dog Bloody Mary Mix

Why am I plugging for alcoholic beverages on a professional EMS site? Well, since this is a mix, technically, I’m not advertising alcohol. There’s no alcohol in it, and you could drink it as just a refreshing tomatoey treat.

Heck, you SHOULD drink it as a refreshing tomatoey treat.

Irish Dog Bloody Mary Mix is the brainchild of former EMT and very good friend of mine Steve Ducey. He and his wife Kelly have pried their family’s secret bloody mary recipe into this awesome product that they’ve called the “Irish Dog Bloody Mary Mix”. I’ve had it, actually Steve brought a batch up to my wedding when he was one of my groomsmen, and it’s just darn good. We sat around the pool before the ceremony preparing ourselves for the event with this stuff. It’s really good.

So help out my buddy, get some good tasting Bloody Mary Mix, and support a medicpreneur. Irish Dog Bloody Mary mix has my personal approval, and it’s brought to you by a really great couple.

    Thanks for promoting a non-alcoholic drink. (if you leave out the vodka) I agree with what you said, that we shouldn't be promoting drinking on an EMS site. Sadly, many (if not all) EMS conferences have alcohol associated with them. Even many monthly meetings of Fire or EMS services have alcohol served.Even off duty, EMS events should not encourage/serve alcohol. People may do what they like at home and out of the public eye. I got into EMS to be one of the good guys and to make a difference. Drinking at EMS events is a lot like trying to promote seatbelts in the community and then getting into your car and driving off un-buckled. Its completely hypocritical. There are plenty of chances to drink, so why do we need to drink at EMS conferences/events? We make ourselves look very unprofessional when we do. Of course, my ideas may be really unpopular because people like to get high on drugs. And yes, alcohol is a drug, in fact it is by far the worst one of all. It causes a lot more suffering than just auto collisions. Its time to have some courage, stand up and admit that we have a real problem if we can't have fun at an EMS event without getting high.

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?
    I tend to strongly disagree with you on this. They absolutely MUST have an Epipen available. By the time the ambulance gets there its already to a critical point if there was no medication available. The time it takes to secure an IV and get that injection in them means death for the patient. Period.…

    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.
