Hey Doc! Got to spend the 4th in Washington D.C. with my brother who is active duty, stationed at Arlington VA. Sat at the base of the Washigton Monument and watched the fireworks over the Mall towards the Lincoln Memorial. Hope all is well with you and your guys and gals.....praying for your safe return home, my best friend's son has shattered his tibia in Korea, I'm sure he's fine but we're all a bit "pinched" about the whole oredeal.....thank you for your service, again.....
THANKS for replying and THANKS for serving! We have a scaleable setup from 10 - 30 beds and a saw a photo once of something that hung up on the tent frame either at the end of the tent or between 2 beds. I held various dressings, bandages, common supplies in an easy to find arrangement. Since our providers may ony step inside the tent once a year (usually for a drill) we need something that makes it easy for them to reach, grab and go. Is that enough info or do you need more specific requirements? Feel free to respond on my wall or at my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks Again. Take Care, Enjoy and God Bless!
I am the Medical NCOIC for a TSBn in St. louis. We conduct CLS/TC3 training for deploying units as well as pre deployment training with medical units. I also own Tactical Care Concepts, LLC out of St. Louis. I am looking for a few Army Medics to clinically test a new training device I invented. It is called the M.I.T.S. (multi-injection training system). It is light weight and compact enough to fit in your cargo pocket. It is set up for wet or dry sticks as well as needle decompression training. Everything you need to conduct training is stored inside and can be used as a sharps container as well. Having conducted CLS training in a field setting, I wanted a portable training device that actually allowed the students to become confident in their techniques. I also wanted something that students could take with them out of the classroom and practice on until they were 100% comfortable with IV and needle decompression sticks. .I have used it during my last CLS courses and found that after giving it to the students to take with them and practice before the live stick validation, they achieved first time goes. If you are interested in doing a clinical trial with your Medics, let me know. I am looking at marketing the M.I.T.S. to the military and then the civilian sector. I can give you more details if you are interested. If you AKO me I will respond with my AKO
Hey Doc...how's it going? Just checking in with ya. We had an awful weekend. Had a warm streak, everyone got their "Spring Rose colored glasses" on.....then we got an ice storm. 4 fatals in one shift, all young and needless deaths, of course. I got up Saturday morning and my gut kept telling me "This is gonna be bad Annette"...I HATE that. Hope all is well!
Commented on your post about intubations. I see your a military medic. My fiance Annette was also in the service as a medic. Her brother is still in. He is living in Arlington. Where are you stationed?
