Do you have tennis elbow? Any inflammation? Change in color? Does it only hurt while under weight or when you use it normally?
not to discount in any way the dangers of ammonia gas..but the above video is actually a staged training exercise
I originally saw that as part of a FD hazmat training course, anhydrous ammonia is often present at meth labs, and in the full vid there is a series of credits at the end, noting that the video was developed as part of a training program. That being said, anhydrous ammonia is an intense irritant that can certainly kill you in a high enough concentration,
Is there anything I should tell someone who has pnemonia besides "go to the doctor"?
I can give you a ride
Wear a mask and wash your hands
@this_that5553 I'll pitch in to buy an ambulance if you can get a driver and a few EMTs.
Biggest problem with that would be licensing
@ me in response please,
Yeah that's usually the case. Don't fuck around with pneumonia.
I've had pneumonia a couple of times, not fun
>there is a nationwide shortage of EMS
"Shortages" only exist when price is kept artificially low. So either regulation is keeping EMS salaries low enough that it's not worth doing, or the people who *want* more EMS aren't willing to *pay* for it, and so instead call it a “shortage”.
From experience most of the work is not worth doing
Take empress ems one the the biggest companies in the tri state area they pay 12 an hour to work in the hood of NYC and Yonkers
Dealing with pcp junkies stabbings ect for 12 am hour yeah no thanks..
I'm going to a protest/rally in Chicago this weekend, I'm thinking I should bring some basic essential medical supplies just in case
I'm certified in first aid/CPR by the red cross too
What are the absolute essentials I should bring? what's the best remedy for pepper spray?
basic med kit should be fine I'm sure many cops will be there for pepper spray use some sort of calcium digestive medicine mixed with water
pepper spray is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be
This is my remedy. Worked wonders at Charlottesville.
where can i get maalox?
Any drug store or Walmart or target or whatever
Look with the tums and stomachs remedies
Typically in a white or blue bottle, it’s a liquid
you can get the store brand it will be the same ingredients
is baby wash just baby soap?
Yeah, get the store brand. You'll save at least 2 or 3 bucks. Just look at the active ingredients. They're the same. And avoid getting cherry or peppermint flavored antacid.
And yes, baby wash is just baby soap
It just has to be marked at "tear free".
Awesome thank you
I couldn't find plain flavored antacid. it was all flavored
Weird. The flavored stuff will work. Just go with the cherry flavor instead of the peppermint flavor I sometimes see.
