"Skip I'm glad you brought this up. Your examples are right on. I definitely agree with teaching more situational awareness as well as crew resource management type situations. You have obvious been around(not in a dirty way. He he...) soyour…"

"Joe I am not understanding your question.  And to one up you, it only matters if the PT comes out of the hospital close to neurologically the same way they were prior to going into caridac arrest right?   Respectfully,   Matt "

"No Tom I do not feel that paramedics get enough of what you stated.  You are right.  My goal was to try to state this in my last post, but probably didn't make it known.  We don't get enough which is why we owe it to…"

"Nathan personally I think your approach to establishing an IV is lazy if you start off placing an IO in most of your cardiac arrests.  I rarely have to place an IO in my cardiac arrests.  And splen very little time trying.  Just my…"
