High Speed Education Where Eagles Gather

Entry Img

Dallas is the place to gather today and tomorrow if you are like me and actually enjoy the most current thinking on pre-hospital medical practice coming at you like a fire hose from the very “eagles” of our business. Unfortunately, I am not there. Instead, I was standing a thousand miles away this morning in […]

Did You Watch ‘Nightwatch’ Last Night?

Entry Img

It appears that at least in some EMS circles, the premiere of the new A&E series called ‘Nightwatch’ on Thursday (1/22) was a highly anticipated event. I don’t know if it was just a coincidence that it was also the opening day of the NAEMSP conference held this year in New Orleans, where the EMS-themed reality show was filmed, […]

EMS Today 2015 Makes Winners

Entry Img

The reason I choose to attend any conference is to improve myself, my knowledge, or my skills in some way. As an EMS professional, I have many choices in conferences to attend, but the single best meeting for me to make progress toward all of these goals is the EMS Today conference. There are many reasons […]

What is CAEMS and Why Should I Care?

Entry Img

Two weeks ago, we started a Community of Practice to discuss EMS Deployment. The larger issue of deploying resources is all about efficiency and effectiveness in care, those are also the aims of any High Performance EMS group. However, that message is too often confused with meaning simply “better, faster, cheaper”, when in practice it […]

Entry Img

Rob Lawrence, the Chief Operating Officer of Richmond Ambulance Authority, offered these tips as an article for publication in this blog, but we decided they would make good initial discussion points in an ongoing dialog with our readers and contributors.

Fore Thoughts of EMS Today 2015

Entry Img

For the last few years I have written my initial impressions of conferences in blog posts shortly after, or sometimes even during, a conference. The post “Quick Thoughts from the EMS Today 2012 Conference,” for instance, described my first EMS Today experience and captured the fact that I actually had the opportunity to give ‘two thumbs up‘ […]

We Need Some New Stories

Entry Img

We always hear that EMS is still a relatively new discipline. And in the scheme of medicine, or even public safety, that is certainly true. But we shouldn’t let the fact of its youth keep us from acknowledging that it has already been around long enough to accumulate some of its very own antiquated dogma. If you […]

Quick Thoughts from EMS World Expo 2014

Entry Img

I love Nashville, so one of the highlights from my trip to EMS World Expo was eating at Jack’s BBQ on Broadway, but there was also plenty more to be excited about at the actual show held in the Music City Center this week. While I missed the Preconference sessions and World Trauma Symposium, I arrived on Tuesday […]

Could Busier be Better?

Entry Img

There is plenty of talk about “evidence-based procedures” in EMS lately. Well, today I read an interesting article that shows a link between being busier and better patient outcomes. Okay…, now after reading that statement, what just happened to your heart rate? Was your automatic response to click the link in order find fault so you can dismiss the finding, […]

Impressions of the Ferno iN/X
We've done some pretty substantial research on offerings from both Stryker and Ferno. What we've found is information that is both in line and conflicting with some of the prior comments on this page.

Trauma Shears Dilemma
Leatherman Raptors are amazing... but they rust after a couple months. Wish they didn't rust but that is the only disadvantage of the raptor other than how bulky they are. 6
