Finally! EMS can stop using oxygen on patients…. Well not just yet.

Ever think that maybe patients would be just fine at a 94% Sp02 reading. Even when having a stroke or MI.?

A study on the benefits of oxygen and how an Spo2 reading as low as 93% or even 90% is just fine for patients.

This week on the show Jim is joined by Josh and Dave and they discuss this report and how even recent suggestions per the AHA has made using oxygen much different than it has been.

Don’t Settle For One EMS Option

As 2018 comes to an end I wanted to get one more episode of the podcast in and answer a question I get a lot from members and those I coach on a one to one basis.

The question? “Jim, why do you recommend other peoples products, websites and services?”

Yeah, you might think doing that hurts me as a small business owner. The thing is, I don’t have all the answers or even the best answers. But the one answer I do have is that “I know what is best for people to succeed”.

If that means I send them someplace else then so be it. However, many times it means my members and clients get the best of all worlds.

Take a listen and I think you will see what I mean and how this all applies to you as an EMS professional.

I know you will enjoy this quick 20 min episode and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year.
