New Podcast!

For those of you who mourn the demise of Confessions of an EMS Newbie, I’m doing a new weekly podcast sponsored by EMS1. It’s called Inside EMS, and co-host Chris Cebollero and I discuss current EMS news and events, a clinical topic, and an interview every podcast. Check out the first episode on EMS1.

Fool Me Once, Shame On You…

… fool me twice, shame on me. I’m a pretty liberal guy when it comes to pain relief. My philosophy is simple: if you’re hurting, I try to make it stop. Acute pain is not a character builder, and it is one of the few conditions most paramedics are well-equipped to manage. I don’t like […]

Job Satisfaction Is Where You Find It

I’ve been in EMS 21 years. I’ve paced, cardioverted, defibrillated, needled chests, intubated, birthed babies, given countless drugs, plugged bullet and knife wounds, pulled scores of people from the wreckage of cars, and stood over a score of dead bodies nobody could have saved.

Go On, Touch My Maggie.

You know you want to.

Minions, It Is Time To Mobilize!

Okay guys, here’s the deal. I’m trying to help an EMS advocacy group get off the ground. They aim to raise awareness and provide education and peer support strategies for EMS people who suffer from mental illness, particularly depression and PTSD. They, like myself, are tired of constantly reading of our EMS brethren taking their […]

DC FEMS: Just Take Off and Nuke the Site From Orbit

It’s the only way to be sure. I used to post a good bit about the follies of what passes for an EMS system in our nation’s capitol. I don’t anymore, because frankly, they’re too easy a target. There’s no sport in it, and constantly pointing out how bad they suck is akin to picking […]

Product Review: Blauer 8835 Operational Trousers

A few months back, the nice folks at Blauer sent me a pair of tactical pants to review. Well, what with the holidays and EMS conferences and the move to a new home and the need to get the trousers hemmed to be able to wear them, and the friggin’ cold weather we’ve had, it […]
