    Routine About a week ago I went for a “routine” procedure. When I arrived at the specialist’s office I followed my directions, I stripped naked from the waist down, laid on the table and left my baby maker out in the open for the world to see. I wasn’t uncomfortable with the procedure until this very moment. About 10 minutes later 2 women entered, the one who was going to perform the procedure was a student. For the next 30 min I was handled, squeezed and examined. All of a sudden this routine procedure turned very invasive. I started thinking of all the times…

    To this day, “Emergency!” remains the only Fire/EMS show that I simply had to watch. Of course, I was 10-years-old when it first aired, back when my brother and I were fairly certain it was our destiny to save the world. I was going to be the medic, he figured he would be captured by the enemy, whoever that was, and become a real life Hogan’s Hero. Life is funny sometimes. I actually became a medic and he served a year in Iraq at the height of the war and another year in Afghanistan. He was never captured, and I never did half the stuff Johnny and Roy did, but our lives…

In a healthy relationship you have a good date, really like that person, but don't mind dropping them off after an evening out because you know you'll see them again. Hemoglobin picks up and drops off O2 when needed. (Normal Curve) In another scenario, you pick up your date, but don't really like them too much, so you can't wait to get the date over. You drop them off fast! In a Right shift, hemoglobin…
  • Hemodynamic Compromise in Trauma

    28 Jan 2015 | 10:31 am
        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?
