This is a great reboot session with Greg Friese and remember that EMS Boot Camp sessions can now be found at EMSSEO.com.
For this episode we ask: “Have you ever helped the man down, stopped at an MVA or even performed CPR while off duty?”
As EMS professionals we sometimes find ourselves in a position to act while off duty.
For this Office Hours Greg and Jim talked a little about doing just that. You never know when someone may call out “Is there a doctor in the house?”. You would probably be surprised that they would prefer an EMT anyway.
I would love to hear your off duty story. Share it below in the comments.
Check out this great reboot of an episode with now EMS1.com’s Greg Friese telling a gruesome story (I’ll give you a hint “Q-Tip”).
It all started with a discussion on geriatric patients and being a good customer service EMS provider.
During this episode Ted Setla stopped in with info on the Feb 12th premiere of The Chronicles of EMS as well. This was back in 2010 but very worth watching even today.
This was a fast 30 minutes. Be sure to leave your comments below.

Everyone has a different method of studying and preparing for exams.
You have probably developed this over the course of your life and it works for you.
The thing is, maybe you are working harder to study and pass exams. In EMS this is definitely when working harder is NOT smarter.
So, I am doing a quick EMS Exam Success workshop that you can come join me in.
In this webinar I am going to show you my method of studying and preparing for an exam and how I coach EMS students when they are struggling.
A method that has worked for them and me time and again.
It’s 100% free and I am giving away a special gift at the end of this event as my way of saying thank
you for joining me. (Hint: It’s a download of EMS study resources that usually sells for $20).

This installment of the EMS Quick Study Tips talks about respiratory acidosis and alkalosis. Great tips and help for EMS paramedics when taking exams and assessing their patients.
During this weeks Office Hours Jim, Josh and Dave talk about the never ending flow of non-emergency calls and how that can numb us as EMS providers. It’s important not get complacent and to properly assess each patient. However don’t you think that the crying wolf we deal with in EMS can easily make us fall into just what these patients sometimes perceive us as – A “taxi ride” to the hospital.

Is EMS the stepping stone to other professions? Do providers leave EMS to pursue better career options when they find so few in EMS. Sometimes its not about pay. Its can be about career movement, job satisfaction and options for the long haul. Are teaching and supervisory positions the only rungs in the ladder?
This week we had two guests join us from the EMS Flight and RN fields and the discussion went to everything from education and pay to what may be most important of all – action.
