If we mess up on some of those drugs, we’ll be shattered and someone will lose a father, a daughter, a grandmother or a son. Entire families will be shattered. Stop whining, study your ass off and save some damn lives.

Sometimes I wonder if they’ll ever understand. We say the fucked up shit we do because otherwise, we wouldn’t last. We’d end up in an institution, or six foot under. We HAVE to use the humour we use. It doesn’t make us bad people, nor does it make us ‘sick’. I mean, I just had a domestic violence…

We pull through enough to do our job. People expect more. So we do.

Answer
  • Question: About the EMT thing on party's stuff, are you usually allowed to look in people's pockets? Cause I usually write everything I take (alcohol usualy excluded tho) on a little sheet of paper that I keep in my pocket. - x-s-98

    I’m actually not completely sure on this one. I usually don’t like going through the pockets of a patient but that may be different for others. What does everyone else think?

    If my patient is altered, they get searched.  Either by me or law enforcement.  If LE is on scene, they’re going to search, but I’m not calling LE just to search a patient.  Pull on some gloves, do a quick frisk of pockets, then empty the pockets.  Don’t forget to check purses/wallets.

    Yeah, if I can’t get any information I check for notes, medications, EMS charms, alert tags or even tattoos. I knew a patient who engraved her allergies and medications on the back of her phone. The information is never taken as a sure thing but its definitely something I keep in mind.

Red blood cell and platelet

Platelets, or thrombocytes are small, irregularly shaped clear cell fragments (i.e. cells that do not have a nucleus containing DNA), 2–3 µm in diameter, which are derived from fragmentation of precursor megakaryocytes. The average lifespan of a platelet is normally just 5 to 9 days. They circulate in the blood and are involved in hemostasis, leading to the formation of blood clots.

Exit wounds for lightning strikes can appear up to 48 hours after the initial hit. I don’t know if this is concrete info but after a recent call I’m inclined to agree.

One thing better than coffee. Getting a code 3 lights and sirens call as soon as you get to the station.
