Anyone else hate how their tummy looks in EMS...
vanlearrose: Gotta get to doin’ those situpsss. Yeah. I usually wear the mens cut because they tend to look better. For some reason the womens version of our uniforms have the hip pockets sewn shut. I can’t figure out why they would do that.

Pedestrian: Hey! Where can I get dope? Where have they been ODing at?
My Partner: South Side! Every time!
Pedestrian: You guys saved my life the other day. That narcan works every time!
Partner: Way to party man rock on.
Rick, I’m sorry that hearing that JFK speech on religion makes you throw up, but...– JON STEWART, on Rick Santorum saying JFK’s historic speech on the separation of church and state makes him want to “throw up,” on The Daily Show (via inothernews)
catbountry: I think the reason most people say that they’re not effected by the media is because they’re probably responding to the argument about how listening to Marilyn Manson will make you sacrifice your little sister to Satan. Which, for the record, is absolutely untrue. That’s Brian Adams. Playing Brian Adams when the church people show up.

My EMR instructor: You arrive at a scene with a patient laying on the ground. You check their level of alertness and they appear unconscious. You have already opened their airway with an adjunct and are administering oxygen.
What do you do next?
Student: Call 911!
My EMR Instructor: YOU ARE 911.
That strange call
We got paged out for difficulty breathing. By the time I got there one of the fire fighters had brought the ambulance (I love our basics. They complete me.) and they had the patient sitting in the back. His face was swollen. Not his entire face, his sinuses. So swollen he couldn’t talk. Not his throat or tongue, just his sinuses. His lungs were so full of fluid you could hear him from...
A Collection of Thoughts: GSW Musings →
emsnerd: Went to a GSW case review tonight about a case one of the other local squads had. We very rarely see GSW’s here, and this class was very informative and provided the EMS crews with a lot of good info for the future. Things like this kinda make me wish I lived in a more populated area. It’s rare… I know that feeling but I also know the feeling of having to deal with things after...

"Medical tattoos offer important health... →
Some medical tattoos are being used to take the place of bracelets that commonly list a person’s allergies, chronic diseases or even end-of-life wishes. “Bracelets are nice, but something as strong as a tattoo … that is a strong statement,” said Dr. Ed Friedlander, a Kansas City pathologist who has “No CPR” tattooed in the center of his chest, where a paramedic would see it. Friedlander, 60,...

simonbitdiddle asked: Yeah, I'm Minnesotan so everything up here is laced with Passive-Aggressiveness.
simonbitdiddle asked: Well, the really proper way is to have a small hand-held sign that states "I appreciate your concern for my soul but it is in another house of worship." Whenever they come to your home, flash this sign and then close the door.

paramedicine: This rail corridor is among the busiest in the world and in the general area of other derailments in recent history.

Note about video links: Both videos contain speculation and some incorrect information as they...
