Are you authorized to apply hemastatic agents in the field on your own judgement? I had a recent need for that in an ER. The RN had to receive authorization from the MD on duty.

Yeah we can use hemostatic dressings in the field but we don't need any authorization to do so. Just a standing order to use when necessary for trauma.
That's a difference between prehospital medicine and hospital medicine. EMS functions primarily on standing orders and doesn't have to ask for orders often esp at the paramedic level while RNs may have certain expansions to scope but require orders for a lot of treatments.

Have you ever received a compliment so profound, you had to pause briefly to fully absorb it? What was the nature of the compliment? A close friend, family, colleague, etc?

Neo_gs’s Profile PhotoStrawberry Fields Forever
Yes actually.
It was on my first ever call with the fire department.
We got toned out for a possible structure fire one winter night. I was on the ambulance learning the ropes. We arrived on scene as fire rescue was clearing the building. There had been reports of several individuals including a few children who had been present in the apartment unit where the fire broke out and needed medical. We were assigned to locate and assess the family from that apartment unit.
We eventually found them and thankfully all were fine.
We then stood by in case more victims were brought out by fire rescue. During this time, a woman in her night gown walked up to me and began thanking myself and the crew I was with profusely saying she was so grateful that we came to help and how it was so cold and dark and scary with the building on fire etc. She then proceeded to give me a hug and thank me again for being there for her and her family.
That was when I knew EMS was where I was meant to be. Just our presence helped comfort other, let alone taking any sort of action or intervention.
Now, many years later, I am nearly a decade into my EMS career and pursuing flight paramedicine and critical care.
That moment that night still sticks with me and reminds me why I do what I do. I'm here to make the world a little safer, a little softer, and help those in need.

are you the type of person to isolate yourself when you’re in a bad mood or do you prefer to be around people to make you feel better?

How to get rid of migraine?

The answer to this depends on the severity. Mild to moderate symptoms can usually be addressed through hydration, NSAIDs, hot/cold compresses, and small amounts of caffeine.
Moderate to severe migraines may require treatment from a physician and sometimes prescription-grade medication and injections are needed to manage the symptoms.

Could really use some thoughts, prayers, positive vibes, or whatever else you have to offer for my dog who is facing a serious health complication right now and we're not sure what's going to happen 😔 But she is my everything and I can't lose her. 🐾 💜 please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!
