outside of the text books, does anyone have suggested reading material related to EMS?  Really any type of media (paper or websites) that you find interesting.

Jeffery- Thanks for the advice!  While I do enjoy what I do and working in EMS, I do understand the need for a life outside of work.  Ive only been in EMS less than a year and already have seen many co-workers and colleagues in the EMS community "burnout". Given, many of these fellows have been doing this far too long, but I definitely do not want to become a "victim" of those circumstances.  I'm very eager to learn and be successful in this field, hopefully, I can have a very fruitful career.

Hey everybody!  I'm fairly new to EMS.  I'll have been an EMT-Basic one year this January.  I'm currently attending classes to become a Paramedic and will be finished in May.  I eat, sleep, and breath EMS, however, sleep is a rare commodity.  HA HA

Hey All,

Does anyone have a resource for used Paramedic text books?
I specifically need "Paramedic Practice Today" Volumes 1 & 2 (Mosby) The best prices I have found so far are about $85-$95 for the text books each, and $35-$45 on the workbooks.

I know about, amazon and ebay.

I Just finished up my EMT-B class the end of Feburary and took the NREMT test on April Fools Day! What a day to take them I had to look at my results twice to make sure they didn't play a joke on us that we passed. I am really enjoying the experince so far.
