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@Deleted User be careful, lot of out of date stuff in there.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
Any time, feel free to dm questions if you need to
Anyone @here want to go over some stuff our medics could learn from this mass cas event?
is #1 don't try to do CPR in a wheel barrow?
I'm no medic, but know how to deal with tournequttes and sucking chest wounds
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
Not playing stump the chump, but it's not something I'd carry, and if I did maybe one of each.
i think you need a special bandage? i forget
Anything to form a seal and tape on 3 sides.
I think our setup for rallies needs more organization, but we had the right idea with medics spread out.
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.
Have situational awareness, it is often best to choose the most logical/simplest solution in a chaotic situation.
Thought this was worth sharing. Never saw this video until my EMT class.
ammonia can be broooootal
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.
I've never heard of salt re lead. You might have low levels incidentally though
@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.
Will my lead levels naturally go down if I stay away from it? I can't, but I can take better precautions.
Yes that's the main treatment
If with your job make sure they following regs
Cool. It's all me at work. I have to take better care.
Thanks for information
No problem be safe

Yeah bullshit lol
