Being A Critical Care Medic | Is CC Training Beneficial?

This episode I talk with Dominick Walenczak who is a Critical Care Paramedic and also runs the CritMedic Podcast.

We talk about the benefits of the advanced training as well as its use in the 911 arena. Honestly I’m a bit on the fence, but Dominick pointed out genuine benefits to the training and it’s application throughout EMS.

Sharing Your EMS Secrets

It’s where is really happens right? We discuss the calls on the way there, we discuss them afterwards and we talk about everything EMS in that little space in the ambulance. It is pretty intimate when you think about it. It almost beckons us to tell our true opinions, our life stories and dreams to people we barely know.

But does what we say in that small private area stay there? While many feel it should, often it doesn’t. Depending on the system you work in, it could be a partner issue or lack of one that helps all those private thoughts and comments get shared. Yet we still share.

Do you? Have you found yourself trying not to share and then realize you are when its too late?
