One the 1st and 15th of every month we review new actual EMS calls and have general discussions on various medical topics, from Intubation and RSI to the Future of EMS. This podcast was created for EMS providers by current EMS providers.
The Black Hole Of Doom
In this call we see what can happen when we abandon triage, make choices based on feelings and ultimately get in over your head. This one is most definitely festive!
We review a call that defines "Rock and hard place". Two providers tend to a severely hypoxic patient that they must decide to transport or let pass in front of them. What ethics and humanity of human life are we going to discuss in this one?
Who's Looking For The Dead Guy?
A diagnosis missed! A crew is banned! But HEY! the paperwork is done... How did these two new EMT Basic's not recognize their patient was sick and what was the overall outcome?

As a new EMT or Paramedic passing your tests can be stressful and tough. So can getting your first job and running your first call. We guide you through these tough times with great tips and advice in today's episode.
Treat Or Not To Treat? It May Make Things Worse..
Altered Mental Status & Lethargy is where you start. The Cath Lab and a CT Scanner is where you end. How did these providers put it all together and which treatments may harm or help your patient in the end?
When To Pull The Trigger
Today we have an open discussion about When To Pull The Trigger or When To Sit On Your Hands. In the examples we discuss in this episode I think you will gain a better understanding of what makes us choose what treatments to go through with and which to hold off on.
