  • Policy Prohibiting Concealed Carry of Guns by EMS Professionals

    Greg
    12 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    Hard to believe it has been almost two years since I last wrote about concealed carry for EMS. But it has. Scott Kier, Sean Eddy, and Chris Montera rekindle the conversation in Episode 14 of the EMS in the New Decade podcast. Two years ago I was skeptical about EMS and concealed carry and I remain skeptical. The Delusion of Policies that Prohibit Concealed Carry. I have a general disdain for policies that are a) difficult to enforce and b) if the policy is violated the likelihood of actual consequence is low. If an ambulance service has a policy, “Paramedics are prohibited from…

  • If We Pretend that Anecdotes are Not Anecdotes, Do We Change Reality?

    Rogue Medic
    31 Aug 2014 | 6:00 pm
      The following comment was written by Duke Powell in response to Where is the Evidence for Traction Splints?   I’ve been an urban paramedic for 34 years and, prior to that, a volunteer EMT for 9 years. For those who can’t add, ….that’s a long time. How many times have I used a traction splint? …… I dunno, let’s guess 10 times.   That works out to an average of over four years between uses of the traction splint. That is plenty of time to have the memory of each use reconstructed many times, so that the memory and the reality may not have much in common. Each time…
  • Where is the Evidence for Traction Splints?

    Rogue Medic
    29 Aug 2014 | 7:45 am
      We eliminated tourniquets from ambulances because of anecdotes and some strong opinions, but not because of valid research. Valid research shows that tourniquets work. Tourniquets are back. We added traction splints because of anecdotes and some strong opinions, but not because of any valid research. Will research result in the same reversal of opinion-based practice. With so little evidence, devices that are frequently misused, and no apparent need for these Rube Goldberg devices, should we continue to use traction splints?   Image credit.   Does a traction splint work?

  • Does a Placebo vs. Adrenaline Study Deprive Patients of Necessary Care According to the Resuscitation Guidelines?

    Rogue Medic
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
     Some in the media have been critical of the upcoming British study of adrenaline (epinephrine) vs. placebo for cardiac arrest.[1] They assume that the guidelines require that we give adrenaline, but that is not true. The guidelines only state that adrenaline may be considered. If you are a dog, pig, or rat in a laboratory and you have had an artificially induced cardiac arrest, then adrenaline will help resuscitate you. If you are a human who has a cardiac arrest for any one of a variety of reasons, then there is not a good reason to give this rat resuscitation drug, which has not been…

  • Boot Breakdown: The NIKE SFB and NIKE SFB Field

    Lauren Malm
    23 May 2014 | 9:45 am
    Footwear is where NIKE excels, and its tactical line is no exception. The brand made its debut into the market with the Safety Field Boot (SFB). Then in early 2014, it released the SFB Field. Both boots have a similar handsome cut and are built for the same purpose. However, there are some key differences that set these two styles apart. NIKE SFB The Nike SFB was designed with speed in mind, and the result is the lightest, highest-mobility tactical boot the brand has ever made. Fast-drying, flexible and featherweight, NIKE SFBs feel more like a pair of athletic shoes than a boot. Even…

    Our Celebrity Medic this week has certainly seen his ups and downs throughout his career. From botched gun running operations to investigations of high-ranking political officials, he has certainly experienced his share of stress on the job. With his career surely coming to an end in 2016, it leaves many of us to wonder if he will enjoy retirement or seek employment outside of the justice department? Perhaps a career change to EMS would be in order? That leaves us with no choice but to ask the famous question of the week: What kind of paramedic would Eric Holder be? Mr. Holder wouldn’t…

    Our Celebrity Medic this week is no stranger to tragedy. With all the violent crime in the streets, he has no problem keeping his travel schedule full. Chances are, he will never find himself in a position to need a new line of work. But what if he got tired of his life in the spotlight? What if he decided to seek a more hands-on approach to responding to tragic events? Sure, he might need some training, but a transition to EMS would be right up his alley. So without any further delay, let’s ask ourselves the big question of the week: What kind of Paramedic would Al Sharpton be?

    I’m sure the headline of this article will have many people lighting up their torches and sharpening their pitchforks, but hear me out before you burn my village down. Most of us have heard and most likely participated in the heated debate about whether or not paramedics should be intubating in the field. If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know that I’m no exception. Do I think our industry falls short when it comes to airway management training? You bet. Do I think the solution is to eliminate intubation from the standard scope of practice? No, I…

That is, unless he gives the finger to the IRS forgets to pay his taxes again. With Willie’s extensive knowledge in herbal remedies, experience working on a bus and ability to work with old, broken equipment, a job in EMS should be right up his alley. So without further delay, it’s time that we ask ourselves the almighty question of the week: What kind of Paramedic would Willie Nelson be? Even though his heroes have always been cowboys, his mamma…
