For You EMS Newbies…

… Episode 27 is up on Confessions of An EMS Newbie.

Ron and I talk about the various specialty alphabet soup courses such as tactical EMT, wilderness EMT, critical care paramedic, etc., and we get the definitive answer on what hurts worse – Taser or getting shot in the thigh with a .357 Magnum.

We also talk about the historical background of intraosseous infusion, various IO devices and how little it actually hurts to get a needle drilled into your bone, and how to tell when the guy working on you is a student (hint: it requires lots of Bandaids).

It’s Confessions of An EMS Newbie, the only podcast outlawed by the Hague Accords as being too brutal for civilized warfare. You should give it a listen!
