"Thanks Kris, your protocols are somewhat different to New Zealand - in NZ - we do not attempt resus if they have obviously been dead for some time - if they have rigor mortis and lividity. Regardless of whether it is witnessed or not - when we do…"

CPR Protocols

Hi, I am an EMT from New Zealand - and was wondering about the different protocols in other countries in regards to CPR. When you got to a call such as a cardiac arrest - do you always attempt a resus? When (according to your protocols) is it deemed acceptable to stop? Can you call "time of death" Am curious to here the answers to these questionsSee More

"Cheers for that KIWI EMT!!!! I have been pretty on top of it all until now. Having to stand down for a "rest" - its been made mandatory. Think the earthquake just threw me over the edge - but you are right in what you are saying."

Things get better.....

After my horrible night the other night - I am back on the truck - back onto night shifts......... I love this job - but at the same time I really hate it too. But what can you do - you just have to keep on keeping on because there is always someone out there much worse of then yourself.

Back at my Home Station

After being away for so long I returned to my home station on Monday Night. I worked with my favourite crew partner. But just couldn't get in the mood. Its the first time where my personal crap has really begun to affect my professional working life. To make things worse - I went to someone I knew in not very nice circumstances. I love this job - its become a part of who I am. But lately all I can fixate on is negative affects of the illnesses and injuries etc.

Hang in there Gem! Just remember why you are in the job and focus on the pt mate! If you can get a smile from a stranger, it can all seem worthwhile. I can only imagine what it's like to be on the "frontline" down there right now, but don't lose sight of the fact that it's a temporary situation. Or if it's really all too much, quit. Your pt's deserve to be treated by someone focussed and caring. That is what I would want for my family and friends. It's what I expect from myself as a practitioner. Ultimately, do what is best for you!
