    Don't worry depri, hablo espanol muy bien. Does kinda suck but hey look on the bright side, you probably made your friend's days that much better when you choked. Isn't that what EMS is about making peoples days that much better. Heck you do your job even when you aren't doing your job.

    What is EtOH anyway?

    So as a bio major and biochem minor I understand, but I absolutely suck at explaining things so bear with me here: So the way I have always understood it is in an acid you have an excess of H+ ions. The H+ ions floating around (actually in the form of H3O but thats not important) disrupt...

    Paramedic Polygraph in Canada? (or elsewhere)

    The one thing I can suggest is to make 100% certain that you are off it and done forever. The one thing that is most likely to come back on you is a drug test.

    So I still have 3 years of undergraduate school left in biology, does anyone know how and if it would be feasibly possible for me to be able to take a medic class (already have a basic cert) while being a full time student in biology?

    In my service our protocol is that if we get called back to a house a second time in a 24 hour period, and they refuse transport again we are to remain on scene and call in an officer to give them a lecture on abusing the 911 system. Usually after hearing about fines and possible jail time they...

    If I were the boss of EMS....

    So the problem that I see here is that most people are gonna forget their advanced skills before they get to the medic level. As for not allowing someone to be a medic unless they do it full time, I don't know about you, but where I am from there is a severe medic shortage.

    Driving a Stick

    I know this feeling. Every car and pickup that I have ever driven is an automatic, but growing up on a farm I've gotten used to all heavy vehicles being sticks. Now whenever I climb into a heavy vehicle wether it be an ambulance, a fire truck, a water tender, or for that matter sometimes in...

    Driving a Stick

    So today I spent a few hours sitting on a backup ambulance when our county got really busy at one point, and the ambulance that we used has been having problems shifting since about the time we first bought it (doesnt help it was low on transmission fluid, I checked it out of curiosity). But...
