    This is a guest post from a entering 5th grader on reasons his school should say no to a soda machine. Thanks for the guest post. There are some things we could use and need here at school, but there are also some things we should not have. We should not have a soda machine in the cafeteria. Soda is unhealthy One reason we should not have a soda machine in the cafeteria is because soda is not healthy. Soda has lots of sugar so it makes kids jittery. It also has lots of calories and if we did not have physical education on that day we would not be able to burn the calories off. Soda also does…

This is a great book from the author of Responding and Rescuing Providence.  I hope you will check it out. The The Gemini Effect by Chuck Grossart was a recent Kindle First book, which means as a Kindle owner and Prime subscriber I was able to read it for free.

These people labor in obscurity for the most part, performing a thankless job that is every bit as lifesaving as the jobs of the world’s top physicians.

Then I realized I had forgotten something inside the station after I…

    Scenario-based education is a great learning tool for EMS people. I believe that scenarios are one of the best ways for EMTs and Paramedics to get their heads in the game and think deeply about potential problems they might face in the field before the tones go off and the pressure comes on. EMS scenarios allow the EMS person to look at potential problems, consider potential solutions, and test out the results of their actions in a safe environment. They can help identify areas where providers need to study up on additional information and can go a long way towards helping increase a…

However, in this ever changing healthcare climate we are continually asked to do more and to have more knowledge and continuing education than ever before.

  • Hemodynamic Compromise in Trauma

        Dead space is something we need to always look at and calculate when dealing with our ventilator patients.  We can calculate dead space in 2 different ways. 1. 1 mL/pound of ideal body weight (neonates, pediatrics, small adults) 2. 150 mL/breath (normal sized adults) Understanding the difference between minute ventilation (VE) and alveolar minute ventilation is important.  All that’s great. But how does that affect our patients?  How does it affect our patients with hemodynamic instability?  Do we treat our trauma patients different than an ARDS patient?
