Is Any Day Your EMS Everyday?

What perception do people have of you? Have you built negative cache by letting things go and become your everyday?

Not sure what I mean? Take a listen to this weeks podcast to see what I am talking about. It is a short episode but I think it will make sense and hopefully change your everyday.

 

EMS Training, Response & Patient Outcomes

We focus a lot on response in EMS. Your response coupled with your paramedic or EMT training can effect patient outcomes. 

Sometimes response is the focus without equal attention to training. Getting there is only part of what we do, yet is often the one marker that is looked at when it comes to a patients outcome.

This week we talk about EMS response, EMS call types, paramedic training and how they all reflect on patient outcomes.

Does an 8-10 minute response have a positive impact or is it better training and equipment?

Why EMS Providers Resist Knowledge

I was joined by Mike Pertz this week on the show and we discussed a variety of topics. One of them being why EMS providers resist increasing their knowledge base unless it is exam time or mandated by their job or certification.

Mike is a contributor to FireRescue1.com and he has a great tool for EMS providers to help with pediatric patients called SmartSquad and you can get more information on that tool here.

He gave some unique insight into this topic I am sure you will enjoy.

He is also the owner of FireFighterNow.com which helps those who want to become firefighters pass those exams.

Anticipation Can Be Everything In EMS

Applying Your EMS Knowledge

You have heard the saying “Knowledge is Power”. In EMS you have to be able to apply that knowledge and know when and how. Especially within the pre hospital environment.

Anyone can memorize big words and sound smart around the water cooler. But that won’t change what you can do as a paramedic or EMT.

Be good in EMS so you can be great for your patients.

Is Your EMS Boss Complaining About You?

We all complain from time to time on the job. The patients, the calls, the nurses, our agencies and management all find a place on the “gripe vine”.

But when you find yourself always complaining and bringing down the moral of your peers. You can pretty much be assured that you are being complained about too.

Are You Making This MC EMS Exam Mistake?

This week I revive my hate for multiple choice EMS exams but I also acknowledge how I must embrace them.

Many EMT and Paramedics don’t see that while certain types of MC resources will sidetrack your success in EMS.

Others will make all that time, energy and money you have spent working towards your EMT or paramedic certification lead to success.

How To BS Your Way Through EMS School

Lets face it. You can bullsh*t your way through EMT or Paramedic school. Do the bare minimum, skate by the exams, play off your class mates and pass.

Its not hard. I’ve seen people do it. Heck I know kids getting college degrees that have bullshitted their way through. Never taking a note or cracking open a book.

But when does that come back to haunt you? This weeks Office Hours talks all about when that half ass-ary comes back to teach you a valuable lesson.

Take a listen below and be honest. Have you ever BS’d your way through a class, a course or exam? Did it really help you past that moment?

I am confident it most likely did not.
