It's cool looking. 😎

Everything from this book is probably available online for free but hey it was $1 from a garage sale and it's from 1982 so why not

2017-09-29 23:15:11 UTC  

Yes because the internet doesn't always work!

@Pat-MA sounds like she's self medicating for some PTSD type symptoms. She needs to be in therapy at least, the data on ssri are kind of shitty and without knowing her I can't judge risk/benefit but therapy for sure would benefit her.

@Deleted User be careful, lot of out of date stuff in there. If you want a more recent one you can likely find a PDR or few year old Harrison's, Cecil's, Stanford that would be much more useful

@Deleted User thanks for the info man

2017-10-02 23:50:30 UTC  

Any time, feel free to dm questions if you need to

2017-10-03 01:09:58 UTC  

Anyone @here want to go over some stuff our medics could learn from this mass cas event?

2017-10-03 01:10:45 UTC  

is #1 don't try to do CPR in a wheel barrow?

2017-10-03 01:10:53 UTC  

I'm no medic, but know how to deal with tournequttes and sucking chest wounds

2017-10-03 01:12:22 UTC  

@Deleted User yea, I'd say so. @Deleted User that's probably what was needed most in this event, but would you carry either during a concert?

2017-10-03 01:13:49 UTC  

well, most tournequttes are easily fashionable of clothes n stuff, but being able to deal with the latter, I'm not sure you can really do that with clothes haha

2017-10-03 01:13:52 UTC  

Not playing stump the chump, but it's not something I'd carry, and if I did maybe one of each.

2017-10-03 01:14:03 UTC  

i think you need a special bandage? i forget

2017-10-03 01:15:08 UTC  

Anything to form a seal and tape on 3 sides.

2017-10-03 01:15:33 UTC  

maybe doable

2017-10-03 01:15:37 UTC  

but unlikely

I think our setup for rallies needs more organization, but we had the right idea with medics spread out.

2017-10-05 06:35:31 UTC  

Only perform rescue measures if you can maximize the chances of your safety as well. If you put your life in significant danger to save someone who may be unlikely to survive, you are risking 2 casualties, yourself and the victim.

2017-10-05 06:36:40 UTC  

Have situational awareness, it is often best to choose the most logical/simplest solution in a chaotic situation.

2017-10-09 17:41:25 UTC  

Thought this was worth sharing. Never saw this video until my EMT class.

2017-10-09 19:09:30 UTC  

ammonia can be broooootal

2017-10-14 05:56:35 UTC  

damn, noted

2017-11-02 20:01:02 UTC  

I've been having my blood monitored because my lead levels are a little high, well the doctor told me to eat more salt. Is that really a thing? I feel like I eat to much salt.

2017-11-02 20:14:34 UTC  
2017-11-02 20:21:06 UTC  

I've never heard of salt re lead. You might have low levels incidentally though

2017-11-02 20:21:13 UTC

2017-11-02 20:33:11 UTC  

@Deleted User hmmm thanks. I take a lot of C, because I was told that it will bind with the lead. I probably need to take more D and calcium. I'm lactose intolerant too. So any calcium would be good.

2017-11-02 20:34:41 UTC  

Will my lead levels naturally go down if I stay away from it? I can't, but I can take better precautions.

2017-11-02 20:48:09 UTC  

Yes that's the main treatment

2017-11-02 20:48:27 UTC  

If with your job make sure they following regs

2017-11-02 20:53:39 UTC  

Cool. It's all me at work. I have to take better care.
Thanks for information

2017-11-02 21:28:18 UTC  

No problem be safe

2017-11-06 06:43:18 UTC  

Just treated a lady who had her throat cut (shes fine) "accidentally" by her son. "He was stripping copper wire, and i just walked in to the knife. It was my fault."

2017-11-07 23:50:21 UTC  

Yeah bullshit lol

2017-11-07 23:50:32 UTC  

Joe what's your job?

2017-11-08 00:34:45 UTC  
2017-11-08 00:35:31 UTC  

That sounds terrible.
