The Medics are Revolting

Welcome to my new blog. Allow me to head off on a rant here, no use pulling any punches. EMS Needs some changin’. Here’s how we’re going to do it. Hint: It’s together

Ckemtp is now on Twitter and Facebook!

So I’ve finally joined the final frontier or something like that. After much prodding, teasing, cajoling, and downright coersion, Ckemtp has joined Facebook and Twitter. I’m Ckemtp on facebook and, coincidentally, @Ckemtp on Twitter (I think). At any rate, Gkemtp(it) is managing all this stuff and she assures me that the transition will be painless […]

Paying My Pennance

Ouch. Today I begin what I am sure to be a long, arduous process of atoning for my every IV sin. Out of the tens of thousands of patients I’ve treated, I’ve gained intraveinous access thousands of times. Probably I’ve missed a thousand or two more times than I’ve stuck and now it’s time that […]

Two blogs that I found in this long week that are just awesome

This is a light week for me, or at least a 7 day period. Yesterday I worked a 12, today a 24, tomorrow a 12, the next day a 24. Then I have a day off, then a 24 then a 12. So by my count, since Saturday and until Friday I’ll have worked 108 hours. Not […]

Soapy Demons – Ckemtp is a geek

Entry Img

Ok, so this post really proves just how much of a geek I really am. Just bear with me for a bit. This subject causes me a lot of personal grief. I know that it probably shouldn’t and that I am indeed a geek for worrying about this issue because seemingly no one else does, […]

If I wasn’t so busy running calls today…

I would get a post up about EMS Ethics and patient advocacy involving a scenario for y’all… I would get more done on my new upcoming site that’s going live (probably) early next week: http://www.lifeunderthelights.com/ I would write a response to an article that I just read in EMS Magazine I would…. dang, there’s another one

Every Day EMS Ethics – Self Medical Direction?

So you’re a licensed paramedic, right? Hypothetically speaking, you were checking in your truck today and came to the part where you check your drug bag. Now, if you’re like me you look at 5 or 6 different medications every time and check to see if you still know how to use them by pulling […]

More HazMat for EMS – Think it can’t happen?

I just came across this: http://www.dangerouslaboratories.org/radscout.html It’s the story of a 15yo Boy Scout who tried to build a nuclear fusion reactor in his mother’s shed. He didn’t succeed in creating sustained cold fusion, but he did create enough fissile and radioactive material that the EPA had to come in and activate the National Radiological […]

And I thought that my job was cool… This guy gets to BOMB THE MOON

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2009/09/14/lcross-impact-site-picked/ Holy crap, they’re going to bomb the moon. Oh man, do I wish that I could get to do things like that. Instead, I get poo’d on by people… but that’s the life of the medic. All things are rockin’ for the big move to http://www.lifeunderthelights.com/ – I can’t wait. It’s not up yet, […]

Working on the Big Change

Sorry I’ve been so quiet over the last couple of days, but I’ve had my hands full with the upcoming move. As a handful of other EMS and Fire Bloggers, including my buddies Happy and Medic999, we’ve joined in on a new blog network. I’ll be getting a ton of new features, easier content navigation, […]
