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 […]

Volunteer EMS and Training: Mutually Exclusive?

Volunteer EMS and Training: Mutually Exclusive?

By Dan Limmer A recent article in the Press-Republican from upstate New York titled “Editorial: State must reduce obstacles to EMTs” stated: “Ever-increasing state training requirements are thinning the already strained ranks of emergency medical technicians and costing communities money.” Hogwash. Yup. You heard it. Hogwash. I totally agree that volunteer EMS has personnel issues. But […]

Educators in the Field: Preceptors and FTOs

Educators in the Field: Preceptors and FTOs

By Dan Limmer How “street ready” is an EMT student when he or she passes a class and the NREMT? Agencies want providers who are well prepared, but in most cases that isn’t the reality. To be prepared to do the job, a new EMT needs time in the field with either a preceptor or […]

Hitting the books: What does that really mean?

Hitting the books: What does that really mean?

By Dan Limmer I recently talked to a student who had failed the NREMT exam several times. I asked him how he’d prepared between attempts. He said what most students say: “I hit the books.” It turns out students mean a wide variety of things when they say they hit the books—many of which don’t […]
