Is it arrogance if he's right?
i thought the para-god complex was exclusive to actual paramedics. i guess EMTs have their own version now too

Re: **Read this before anything else in the First Aid sectio

Saying that no doctor could do your job is just a little ridiculous. There is also absolutely no reason to attack someone just because you think they are infringing on your territory. An MS-III is not some idiot off the street. Maybe his opinion is not completely sound, but there is no reason to ju...

Re: Community Feedback: Poll on Defensive Shotgun types

I'm curious - in what condition of readiness do people keep their HD shotguns? My home defense go to is a pistol, but if I were scattergun - inclined, the FNH SLP Mark One with Federal 00 2 3/4" buckshot, replaced 870 Marine Magnum. Eight round tube. Could load 8+1+1 if I wanted, but I don't. Needs...

H2 blockers like Zantac and cimetidine (Tagamet) are used for anaphylaxis as second-line for the GI symptoms that are usually present. actually there was a study in annals of emergency medicine that showed a decrease in hives and angioedema after 2 hours of ranitidine plus benadryl compared to bena...

Re: Wilderness first aid certs WMI vs ASHI

WMI also offers a wilderness bridge class for medical professionals. That's the one I'm doing in June. It's called Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals. It generally runs $600-$630, lasts 5 days, and upgrades EMTs to WEMTs, and non-EMT medical professionals to WFR. Awesome, good luck to you...

Re: MSR MIOX?

I have found them to be a great instrument. I used mine on a three week backcountry trip through the sierras. It sounds like you found a nice deal. Make sure you have extra batteries and salt

The dual bell on littmanns is not an adult pedi... One side is used for low frequency and the other for high. A common misconception Depends which model you are talking about. The Cardiology III has an adult diaphraphm one side and a paediatric one on the other. The Master Classic II SE has an adul...

Re: Should I take an EMT or Medic class?

Another outfit to look at is wilderness medical associates. Once upon a time I took WEMT at ucla through them. Great skill set.....way more useful than just straight emt[/quote] I wouldn't go that far. I'm almost positive that you need to be an emt-b first before taking the wilderness. The wildernes...

Re: Should I take an EMT or Medic class?

. Oh right, taking a Wilderness EMT course on the side after your EMT would be good too--as WEMTs have a slightly different protocol when it comes to a few things. Are there organizations aside from NOLS that offer good Wilderness EMT courses? Preferably not too far from the Bay Area, in Cali. Anot...
