Treat The Patient Not The Monitor | Or Something Like That

This week on the podcast I talk about the age old saying “Treat the patient, not the monitor”. Maybe it should be “Treat the patient AND the monitor”.

Plus I highlight an up and coming ECG monitor that looks great but I think way to many bells and whistles – translation – too expensive for most agencies in equipment and training.

Giving Patients An Unfair Advantage

When you prepare beyond your basic training and knowledge you are giving your patients an unfair advantage. This is good for them of course but great for you as well.

It’s unfair unfortunately because many EMS providers just do the minimum to get certified and get a job. But as you know, EMS is more than just a job. There are so many moving parts and you should be understanding them all thoroughly.

Doing that will give your patients that advantage they need. Take a listen to this weeks episode and see what I mean.
