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.

This was a great episode so be sure to lean forward and listen below.

Anticipation Can Be Everything In EMS

Being able to anticipate things in EMS can be helpful. When you think about it, you can actually try and anticipate many things in your EMS day. By doing this you will find yourself better prepared what you find even if you didn’t actually anticipate it.

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.

Listen to this weeks podcast to see what I mean and how your knowledge focus may need to change.

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 An EMS Micro Influencer?

What do you do each day in EMS that makes a difference? Not necessarily with a patient, although that is certainly important.

I’m talking about doing things that influence. They can be small or big. Perhaps just at the level of influence with that partner sitting next to you.

When we can have that micro influence, it can go much further than we may think.

Take a listen to this weeks podcast and see if you fit in as a micro influencer in EMS.
