@Deleted User yes actually fish antibiotics are the same as the ones they give to mammals. Just make sure you take a high enough dose for long enough. An infection coming back is bad news bears.

@Deleted User also try your local farmers coop

2017-08-14 21:49:20 UTC  

Who can put me in the medic lessons thread?

2017-08-14 21:49:51 UTC  

I was a corpsman, does that count lol

2017-08-14 21:58:42 UTC  

@Deleted User only the moderators can post in the lessons threads

2017-08-14 22:00:26 UTC  

Can we get some CPR stuff posted in there? One of the better places to start. @Brandon Ironside- ND

CPR is very basic just YouTube red cross CPR if you dont break a rib your doing it wrong

2017-08-14 22:07:44 UTC  

I will post how to do the head tilt chin lift for rescure breathing and BVM operation

2017-08-14 22:09:14 UTC  

Idk if I'd post the rib breaking stuff lol. That's how you get people pushing to the spine. 2 inches, you might crack a rib or 2, just be weary of that. Depth is 1/3 for kiddos.

@Deleted User 👍🏻

Reminder that everyone who is a medic and has something to share should. Just because youre not a mod at this stage does not mean we don't want to hear from you. That goes for every subject.

2017-08-14 22:39:27 UTC  

Ive done CPR many time on real patients you will almost always break a rib

2017-08-14 22:40:11 UTC  

Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction

2017-08-14 22:41:46 UTC  

So have I, work on an ambulance full time, hospital part. I've seen plenty of newbys to CPR try purposely to break ribs because someone told them they have to.

2017-08-14 22:42:13 UTC  

Then they need to retake anatomy

2017-08-14 22:42:32 UTC  

Amd should be fired

2017-08-14 22:51:43 UTC  

Or, we could teach them the depth without saying "if you don't break ribs, you're not doing it right". It leads to pigeon religion like when people put a spoon in a seizing persons mouth.

2017-08-14 22:54:06 UTC  

Literally everytime I see a code, someone is doing CPR atrociously wrong. That's the reason I brought it up. It is the most basic thing, and it's usually done wrong.

2017-08-14 23:08:29 UTC  

@Deleted User do they still teach ABC?

2017-08-14 23:13:38 UTC  

ABC for a regular code, CAB for trauma.

2017-08-14 23:20:14 UTC  

Honestly though, if you are a bystander doing CPR, just open the airway with a head tilt (if no signs of spinal trauma), make sure someone calls 911, and do the chest compressions. If you get an assistant, you can worry about the rescue breaths, but building up blood pressure, and keeping it circulating is more important.

2017-08-14 23:36:39 UTC  

@everyone Did anyone talk to the guys we used home remedies for pepper spray on? Did anything seem to work more than just water and air?

2017-08-14 23:37:37 UTC  

@Deleted User milk, Maalox, and baby shampoo.

2017-08-14 23:37:55 UTC  


2017-08-14 23:38:25 UTC  

Data shows most important things to surviving arrest is quality compressions and how quickly someone can be cardioverted

2017-08-14 23:38:59 UTC  

If someone goes down, start compressions and get AED asap.

2017-08-14 23:40:30 UTC  

My only concern with the milk is if we are out in the heat, not sure someone would like stinky hot milk on their face.

2017-08-14 23:44:43 UTC  

1:3 baby soap to water in a spray bottle. Scrub scrub scrub. Then 1:1 maalox to water in a spray bottle. Make sure to get both the soap mixture and maalox in the patient's eyes. Rise with water good. Repeat the process. Don't use milk. That's gross

2017-08-14 23:45:13 UTC  

^ this is a Richard Spencer approved method, btw. Got to test it on him a couple times

2017-08-14 23:48:19 UTC  

@ErikaI saw you using it, i was using just normal saline for an eye flush which didn't seem to help much.

2017-08-14 23:49:39 UTC  

OC spray is oil based. Milk. Water. Saline. Etc. won't do anything to strip away the oil. Stripping away the oil is something that needs to happen before you can neutralize the capsaicin.

2017-08-14 23:57:01 UTC  

Baked A. Freaked when I gave him my baby shampoo and water solution.

2017-08-14 23:59:04 UTC  

Richard. McLaren. Freiberg. Ajax. And several others all said my method for neutralizing OC spray worked wonders. Richard also shouted out my efforts on the latest Shoah. I'm now known as the "guardian angel" lol

2017-08-14 23:59:30 UTC  

@Havamal baked got a totally different level of pepper spray than what I treated.

2017-08-15 00:06:09 UTC  

Was it even pepper spray or some type of acid?

2017-08-15 00:17:06 UTC  

He received something at ultra high pressure. It's possible it was bear mace, or it could have been draino

2017-08-15 00:26:46 UTC  

I talked to Baked. It was apparently something called class 4 bear mace. Nasty stuff.

2017-08-15 00:31:55 UTC  

I though bear mace was weaker?

2017-08-15 00:32:22 UTC  

Which sounds odd but I swear I've read it in multiple places
