    Overdrive Pacing

    Yea I believe it was. Breaking the cycle by taking control and bringing it to where you want it to be is the thought process. Ive found some information on it on web but I wanted to see if anyone has ever seen it first hand or if it was a protocol that someone might have had back in the day and...

    When/why do you guys intubate?

    One of the main reasons services perfer the King over the combi is going to be because of the ease of inflating one lumen instead of two for the combi. Also with the combi you have to place the BVM on one of two tubes. While bagging you have to listen for epigastric sounds, lung sounds and look...

    In NC what is the difference between advanced emt and intermediate?

    I'm currently a basic in NC and I'm starting medic on Monday. North Carolina is one of the least expensive states to take a medic program, currently taking it for roughly 600 dollars that's books, uniform, and tuition. It's a 6 month class instead of an 8 month or 11 month.

    Industrial Medic

    Hey Matt, that's the kind of contract I'm looking at applying for. What kind of certs are they looking for with that being so remote and which companies are still operating overseas? I have military experience as well if that helps any.

    EMS Student

    I just finished my basic here in NC. It really is not as difficult as people tend to think. Sure there are some challenging topics but it's nothing a quick reference to the book or question to the teacher via email to get it. I think what tripped me up the most was hypoxic drive but took less...
