Joe Smith replied to Raquel Cannamela's discussion Why bother doing a right sided EKG. Nitrate them anyway!
"I agree, a right sided exam should be performed in all inferior wall STEMI's, but there is a bit of EMS-stigma about nitro and a RCA occlusion. Yes, they can be pre-load dependent, depending on the level of the plaque rupture. Yes, NTG may…"

Joe Smith replied to Thrawn's discussion Looking for Agency policy - Do not carry cardiac monitor inside (leave in truck)
"The Zoll X does all this, and weights nothing compared to the Lifepaq, even does invasive monitoring and invasive temp if you want it. Great little monitor, but not cheap. "

Joe Smith replied to Thrawn's discussion Looking for Agency policy - Do not carry cardiac monitor inside (leave in truck)
"I have to say, if people are getting hurt carrying the monitor you need to perhaps get a smaller / lighter monitor. I am not going to recommend a specific brand, but there are full function monitors out there that do everything the Propaq does, and…"

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Paramedics: too many esophageal intubation...
"Geri, Really, enough already. I haven't nursed bashed at all. If I have, please point it out. You are obviously an insecure person who can not hold a civil conversation with anyone who may not fully agree with everything you have to say. Every…"

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Paramedics: too many esophageal intubation...
"An ADN/ASN prgram is almost 3 years in length and not 18 months. That is with going to college fulltime.  I never disputed this, you cut and pasted my statement and took it out of context to make a point that was never asked. Nice…"

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Paramedics: too many esophageal intubation...
"Joe Smith is a good example with downing nurses at every chance I downed nurses? When? I AM one... Stupid argument Geri. I compared nursing school grads to new medics, and indicated they both have a lot to learn. I have worked in both environments…"

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Paramedics: too many esophageal intubation...
"I almost forgot. I do not know where you work, but I have never experienced a CCT team where the RN has floor assignments and the other members are sleeping awaiting a call. Most flight programs, and by most I mean 90% of them the team stays…"

The Cannulator replied to Joe Smith's discussion Why does JEMS keep shutting down comments on these threads?
"I enjoyed the old EMSVillage approach, the threads just went on and on and we policed ourselves. "

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Paramedics: too many esophageal intubation...
"I do not disagree that there needs to be an improvement in education in the field, I see ETCO2 being taught now in most places. Geri is correct that using a tool does not give one the ability to know when to intubate, that's another discussion…"

Joe Smith replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Additional Training
"I hope everyone does."

Joe Smith replied to EMS_Fanatic's discussion Which are the differences between a paramedic and a critical care nurse?
"Totally agree with Skip, but I would add only 1 addendum: they may or may not have several years of non critical care experience, but many do. The best way I can describe the difference: CCRNs take care of 2-4 patients at a time, for 12 hours a…"
