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.

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.

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.
