Suctioning in the Real World

Suctioning in the Real World

by Dan Limmer I recently taught at an EMS conference in Connecticut. The topic of suctioning came up. We talked about how we’d been taught wrong for some time. If wrong seems like a tough word—then at the very least we can say that what we learned is unrealistic. This is what we were taught […]

Why Do Students Pass Their EMT Course But Not Take the NREMT Exam?

As the exam season approaches, Stephanie and I have been talking to a lot of educators. A new topic has emerged in many of these conversations: Students are passing their EMT class but not taking the NREMT exam. While I can only report this anecdotally, I will say that I have heard this from a […]

Oxygen is the Wonder Drug No More

Last summer, we wrote a blog post in response to the 2010 AHA guidelines and the guidelines for oxygen administration in patients with ACS and stroke.
