1. "The guy who played Galbatorix" possibly one of the more famous actors in the movie after Jeremy Irons, John Malkovitch.

  2. As absolutely shitty as it is the best way I've found for me is just force yourself to stay up late enough that a "normal" amount of sleep would have you waking up for your shift.

  3. Essentially any hypotensive trauma patient with possibility for a pelvic injury should receive a binder. They're relatively cheap, very effective, and there's no or very minimal risk of adverse event if applied without a pelvic injury. One of the first things our trauma centre will ask when doing a patch is if the patient has a binder on if they're hypotensive.

  4. Food, snacks, charging accessories, entertainment, sleeping bag/sheets if you have a bed, caffeine of choice, good water bottle.

  5. Where are you at? Makes a difference

  6. Personal call based on how you feel. I essentially did "zero to hero" with minimal experience and it worked out well. However there are definitely times that I feel there are aspects of patient care some experience would help with. However, I have the medicine and scene management down solid and 90% plus of calls I'm able to manage easily while lacking the experience.

  7. This isn't an actual like scene triage method. This is how patients would be triaged when arriving at a hospital and being prioritized to be seen by a doctor. As someone in the comments below said, and I believe, its based on CTAS. I think one of the bigger things that could become obvious it isn't scene triage is the need to select between 161 chief complaints prior to assigning them a triage score.

  8. Not trying to be argumentative at all, I’m sincerely curious. From your description, it sounds like in the US all of those blue tags would fall under the black tag category. Why distinguish between injuries that are incompatible with life and those who are dead/expectant?

  9. I could also see benefit to distinguishing between those already dead and those expectant so that comfort measures can be arranged if time or resources allow

  10. If they're really important to patient care they'll be easy to count regardless of what's going on. If in doubt use end tidal.

  11. Yeah there is, because textbooks that's why.

  12. I've only ever had one patient try and refuse on the grounds of me being a student, and was able to talk them through. Most patients are understanding that you are a student and more than willing to let you have a go, or don't question it because you're the person sent.

  13. East Coast here. Ontario is by far going to be your best paying option as a PCP and it's almost always easiest to get hired in the same area you do school/practicum in just due to licensing and practicum is like a month's long job interview.

  14. Might be either different differentials based on weekend/evenings or it might be that they offer incentive OT for times they have trouble staffing. The important thing is that it's establishing you making at least 1.5x for all OT, and implies the ability to make more.

  15. My thought on the ammonia is if a kid passes out they would become difficult for the teacher to move.

  16. For a tourniquet get a NAR CAT 6 or whatever the current generation is.

  17. AFAIK no one cares as long as it has a hard toe. Steel toe is just the generic term for that and I'd wager the vast majority of people are wearing composite toe due to the better boot styles and weight savings.

  18. Hello! Going to redirect you to our weekly NREMT discussions thread.

  19. My post isn’t about the Nremt. It’s about the practical

  20. Which is a part of the NREMT process. the whole thing is the NREMT.

  21. Congrats! Big step moving forward from there and best of luck!

  22. Not a certification, but did my first finger thoracostomy on a cadaver at a cadaver lab this week.

  23. Congrats! Big stuff and moving forward in medicine with that!

  24. Yes. The online exam is adaptive and can cut off at 70.

  25. AHA BLS is the general accepted CPR for medical providers

  26. AHA because all of the "follow up" or advanced courses (PALS, ACLS, etc...) are generally only (accepted as) AHA offerings with their BLS as a pre-req.
