Brooks Walsh replied to Thrawn's discussion Looking for Agency policy - Do not carry cardiac monitor inside (leave in truck)
"Or just skip the 12-lead altogether. After all, the ED is 20 minutes away - they can just get the 12-lead there. Treat the patient, not the monitor, start diesel therapy, etc... It almost seems like some paramedics are trying to talk themselves out…"

Brooks Walsh replied to iDriveTheTaxi's discussion A lack of respect
"It isn't clear how much of this involves "emergency room personnel," and how much involves a few interpersonal clashes. I suspect the latter. I have posted on allnurses.com in the past (I was looking for ED nurses' perspectives…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Jamie Syrett's discussion Is a dislocated hip an ALS or BLS call?
"Just want to make a small point, before you put this poor soul in a collar, and start going down the trauma path. Artificial-hip dislocations are common, usually atraumatic, and do not need to be emergently reduced. Native-hip dislocations, by…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Jamie Syrett's discussion Is a dislocated hip an ALS or BLS call?
"I think my point was slightly misinterpreted. I meant that EMS does not always appreciate the potential for harm when giving furosemide. We don't even need to invoke the theoretical mechanisms of this harm, since we already know the outcomes…"

Brooks Walsh replied to kender514's discussion Low Dose Morphine in Pregnant PT for Acute Trauma
"I had a sense of deja vú when I saw this topic... On the other hand, it's good to have the discussion again about the relative safety of the opiods in everyone, pregnant or no. Even with heroin, which one would think was clearly…"

Brooks Walsh replied to James Ownbey's discussion TPA in EMS
"There appears to be a sort of pendulum swing in the minds of some people. An editorial favoring prehospital lysis has just appeared in Archives of Internal Medicine! I love this topic - I used the Wilkes EMS experience with paramedic…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Tracey Baker's discussion Another Controversial EMS Area....Your Thoughts-Opinions-Diagnosis!!
"I cannot believe that anyone still repeats carp like "EMTs don't diagnose." It's such a bunch of malarkey on so many levels, and it invalidates the judgment of prehospital providers. Such a statement ignores that central role of…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Nathan Stanaway's discussion Paramedic demoted to EMT after a medication error.
"What are we even talking about here? This is a pretty vague, poorly-worded news report, so it's difficult to define the context, let alone draw too any conclusions.   The one fairly well-established element is that Melvin Davis was pretty…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Don Fifield's discussion IC's request for ALS canceled by responding BLS
"Props to the IC for advocating for the patient. Even if pain control was the only ALS indication (as is implied above), that's a good enough reason."

"Hi Brooks and welcome to JEMS-Connect.  You will meet a lot of great people/friends on here.  Also, I am not sure about the area which you live in CT, but I will be moving to probably New Milford or Brookfield CT in a couple…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Jamie Syrett's discussion Is a dislocated hip an ALS or BLS call?
"I'll chime in with Victoria on this. You don't see this degree of concern for adverse effects with the other medications ALS uses. Now and then the BP drops with nitro. Little saline,and there you go! I'm not sure why folks don't…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Jamie Syrett's discussion Is a dislocated hip an ALS or BLS call?
"Well, I think you're right - pain control won't make a life or death difference. Of course, most things that are done in EMS can't be shown to make such a difference, and that's the point. If we, as advocates for professional and…"

Brooks Walsh replied to Jamie Syrett's discussion Is a dislocated hip an ALS or BLS call?
"I like how the initial scenario was framed - as an artificial hip dislocation. These often occur with minimal trauma, and complications such as AVN of the femoral head or hemorrhage (such as with native hip dislocation or pelvic fracture) are almost…"

Hi Brooks and welcome to JEMS-Connect.  You will meet a lot of great people/friends on here.  Also, I am not sure about the area which you live in CT, but I will be moving to probably New Milford or Brookfield CT in a couple of months.  Hope jobs aren't hard to come by there. :)
