Welcome, and thank you for allowing us to serve you. Pragmatic Paramedics are two medics with the desire to talk about topics pertinent to EMS and paramedicine. We are clinicians, but this podcast is dedicated to the subjects you and your partners discuss riding to and from scenes, sitting in a parking lot, or at your station or firehouse waiting for the next run to come out.
We hope that you not only enjoy but contribute to the discussion and grow with us together. No topic is off the table, and we only ask that you be respectful of another.
Otherwise, grab a cup of coffee and let us get to chatting. Thank you, we look forward to learning about you and hearing your opinions.

Great practical information
Love this podcast. Great conversations about very practical topics for EMS professionals from EMTs to critical care medics and more. Real issues that you encounter on scenes, not in seminars.
Love the podcast
Love listen to this thanks for what you guys do
After listening to several different EMS podcast I found in my opinion some good ones but these guys do an awesome job. It’s all relatable to the job and it’s not just a advertisement line to get you to buy product from their favorite suppliers like I’ve found in other podcast. Great discussion topics guys and I look forward to hearing more!!
