Discussion

  • Throughout my EMS career, I’ve heard from medics that “trauma is easy” that everyone loves trauma because those calls are so easy.


  • Aaron and I are real fans of checklists, but after releasing these two episodes about the topic, we found dissension among the EMS community about their usefulness.


  • Complications, a book that discusses medicine from the perspective of a surgical resident. Atul Gawande. Dr. Gawande is a remarkable author who has done an exceptional job of bringing the reader into the hospital.


  • If you’re reading this, you’re probably about to embark on a journey to becoming a Paramedic. A journey that will take several years of your life to complete.


  • Leadership in EMS is difficult and, in my opinion, does a poor job of developing and nurturing future leaders. In the military, junior leaders at all levels are nurtured for future leadership positions.
