    The team at EMS1, which I am honored to be a part, put together a great package of Year in Review articles and videos.  My primary writing contribution was the retrospective and look ahead, What 2014 EMS development changes mean for EMS in 2015. I managed to touch on many of the big EMS stories of 2014: narcan, backboards, Ebola, on-the-job violence and stress, new roles for EMS, and dissolving roles for EMS. I may have “buried the lede” as they say in journalism because I finished with my two best paragraphs. EMS; every day is the start of new year You have likely heard the…

  • Narcan in Cardiac Arrest – Safe as Long as I Don’t Understand Safety

    Rogue Medic
    13 Jan 2015 | 8:30 pm
      How can I justify exposing patients to the risks of a treatment that has no known benefit? Here is one way –   I give Narcan in arrest. You might not. Neither of us are wrong. Yet.   Narcan (naloxone) is one of the safer drugs we use. Suppose that I give a drug in a way that has not been found to be beneficial because I think it is safe as long as I can’t think of a specific problem I can cause. Does that make the inappropriate drug administration safe? Or is it just an example of my ignorance? If a lack of knowledge were a good thing, we should not teach anything…
  • Why We Need Blasphemy Laws

    Rogue Medic

      The people promoting blasphemy laws are telling us that they believe their gods are impotent in the face of criticism. The gods don’t enforce blasphemy laws, so people have to correct that mistake of the gods. “We have killed Charlie Hebdo. We have avenged the Prophet Mohammad.” – The claims of one of the murderers of blasphemous journalists. These claims were made while the murderers were bravely running away because their gods cannot protect them.[6] Does anything mock the gods more than having to get people to kill in the name of the gods?

    27 Dec 2014 | 8:05 pm
      The media are horrible at reporting medical stories, or any other science stories. They regularly report that some recent study shows a cure for cancer, as if cancer is just one illness. What were the media worst at covering this year? Ebola.   They said Ebola was easy to catch, that illegal immigrants may be carrying the virus across the southern border, that it was all part of a government or corporate conspiracy.[1]     Image credit.   The part of that quote that affects EMS is the claim that ebola is easy to catch. Ebola does require isolation precautions…
  • Florida County Eliminates Use of Magic Backboards for Possible Spinal injuries

    Rogue Medic
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:15 am
      More medical directors are rejecting the superstition that it is acceptable to harm patients to prevent fear of law suits. There is no evidence that backboards do anything to protect the spine, but there is plenty of evidence that backboards cause harm.[1]   Click here to view the video on YouTube.   All treatments have side effects, so we need to have evidence of benefit to justify exposing our patients to those side effects. A treatment that does not provide any benefit to the patient exposes the patient to the side effects, but does not provide any benefit. This is…

      We like to give treatments that produce results that we can see and logically attribute to the treatments we gave. We like to give IV (IntaVenous) furosemide (Lasix – frusemide in Commonwealth countries) for CHF (Congestive Heart Failure).   1. The patient had CHF. 2. I gave IV furosemide. 3. The patient produced urine. 4. The patient improved.   Anecdotes like this can lead us to the conclusion that the furosemide produced the improvement, even if we have been giving many other treatments along with the Lasix. We can use logic to back up that conclusion.   1. CHF is…

    I'm very tired after this latest run of four. These nights seem to be getting longer and longer as we are continually hammered from the moment we sign on duty until we make our weak attempts to get home on time.There is virtually no respite now. Everybody and his dog wants (or thinks they need) an ambulance. I'm spending longer periods at scene with patients - some of them very unwell indeed - because there are not enough ambulances to cover the demand.And this is going to become a not-so-rare event.

    THIS sort of thing says an awful lot about humanity. I'm all for protecting the privacy and security of people's homes. I'm sure nobody wants to have a 'rough sleeper' bedding down on their doorstep every night, and I'm almost certain that most of the outraged people petitioning about this would rather not have a homeless person migrating towards their neighbourhood.However. Installing measures like this to ensure that people cannot lay down is a wee bit over the top in my opinion. We install very similar protrusions to stop pigeons from landing on window ledges and overhung building…

    It's not a word used very often, and when it is, the relevance is rarely on point. But, when you are in a group of mates, out for the night and getting loaded on alcohol (because that's the way its done nowadays), and you dump one of your friends because he or she is too drunk - that's abandonment.I don't mean dropping them somewhere safe and warm to sleep it off; I'm talking about so-called friends who simply leave their drunken mate on a bus, in a taxi... or even worse, on the street. Shockingly, the vast majority of those I've attended in this situation are female. I'd always considered…

    22 Dec 2014 | 6:44 am
    Why do ambulances carry Epi-Pens? You may be asking yourself why I might ask that question. After all, Epinephrine is the first-line medication used for the treatment of anaphylaxis as recommended by scores of organizations and people who know what they’re talking about. It is the definitive treatment for any severe allergic reaction or case of anaphylactic shock. It’s safe to give when it’s needed, has few contraindications in cases of severe allergic reaction, and the earlier it is given in the case of anaphylaxis, the better it works. (1) I should know that, right? Aren’t I a…
