Life and Death Matters | The Podcast Interview

This week I interview Samuel and Christian Adams who are the authors of the book “Life & Death Matters. Professionalism and Decision Making for the First Responder”.

EMS Student, Preceptor Education Balance

Being an EMS paramedic or EMT student is tough. Yet being a preceptor is equally hard. I see too many of each not approaching common struggles the right way. Which leads to frustration and overwhelm and even having students quit their studies.

This episode of the podcast I talk a bit about how to balance it all out and how everyone has to be accountable.

Hierarchy of EMS | Where Do You Fit In?

Where do you stand in the hierarchy of EMS when it comes to skills and knowledge? Are you satisfied where you fit in?

You wouldn’t want a mediocre plumber or electrician doing work for you. Why would you expect a patient to accept a mediocre EMT or paramedic.

Can EMS Stop Using O2 As The Go To?

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.

Take a listen below and be sure to read the report via the link below the audio.

The web based version of this report is on this page here.

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.
