    Treatment Guidelines For The Burn Patient You’ve taken an educated guess on burn depth, calculated the burn area and classified the burns severity. With those priorities out of the way we can start treating the victim. (Yes, I’m taking some creative literary licence here, since assessment and treatment tend to occur in tandem.) There are things we tend to do well and things we tend to do poorly in prehospital burn management. Here are some “do and don’t” type guidelines to direct your burn treatment. Always consider the possibility of non – accidental…

Our three considerations when deciding on burn criteria are: burn depth burn surface area burn location We covered burn depth last time, this time we’ll cover estimating burn area and the particular locations that change our burn assessment.

    From the wild to the field, Salomon boots are built to excel.

From there, the Salomon Forces line was born. These boots caught on with first responders and quickly became some of our best-selling tactical boots. So what features make these boots stand out from the pack? Three Salomon technologies found in every Forces style come to mind immediately.

Our family’s healthy eating transition has been hard on our long-suffering pre-teen, but she’s managing. More veggies and less junk have become the norm in our household and while we’ve collectively dropped a lot of weight as a family, 50lbs of that being my own former EMS-related lard, the daughter still misses the bad old days and detests the “healthy stuff” that we’ve been forcing her to eat.

    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…

Monkeys can learn skills, but they can’t be taught to think critically. I’m a firm believer that paramedicine is 10% skills and 80% head knowledge. And no, I’m not talking about memorizing lines out of a textbook.

  • How to Master the EMS Pay Cycle

    Sean
    27 Jul 2015 | 6:59 am
    EMS and Fire personnel working 24-hour shifts have a unique challenge that the majority of the general workforce doesn’t understand: The short pay period. For me, this occurs every 3 pay cycles. For other schedules, it may occur every other pay cycle. For many of us, we have learned to either work an extra shift during that pay period, or pay larger bills like our rent or mortgage out of the bigger check. These may seem like simple solutions, but those of us that have dealt with this know that one unexpected expense can completely derail this system. What if it didn’t have to be…

We often think that in order to get healthy, we have to make this massive, uncomfortable change. Well, that’s just not true. Change doesn’t have to come all at once.

So what do I do? I wait until the last possible moment to cram in enough online hours to satisfy my license requirements and continue to work.
