In 2010, the American Heart Association released new guidelines for first aid and life support courses. With a new set of ACLS modules and ACLS test questions, 2011 certification courses will have some distinct differences from those based on the 2005 guidelines. Does this mean that individuals certified under the 2005 guidelines need to recertify right now?

Do you think the time it takes to capture a 12-lead ECG is worth it? Would you argue that a lack of transmission capability or a limit in protocols means you can’t do much with an ECG? This episode will challenge that thinking and encourage you to learn more about the power of an ECG and how much you really can do at first patient contact. Continue
One thing is clear, accurate and consistent ECG interpretation requires broader exposure to 12-leads and the training to recognize issues.…

The start of changes are the most difficult when the rut you have walked in is so deep and all you can see is the level of the ground. Now you look at that and say to yourself "I want out", so now you start thinking creatively about how you are going to climb your way out. What I have experienced in my life is to never give up know matter how much things and family go against your every effort to change the life style that everybody is used to seeing you live. Now that I have… Continue

I'm curious why in the US the term EMS Industry OR Business is employed rather than the proper term EMS PROFESSION . When one is making reference to Fire or Police the term is profession, not Industry. In canada the term Industry does not exist when making reference to those in our profession.
I think it is time the term industry be replaced by PROFESSION.

Stay alert behind the wheel and pull over when emergency vehicles approach. That’s the message from a series of new public service announcements (PSAs) from the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF).
The print PSAs – which will be published in newspapers, magazines and online – depict an emergency vehicle in a driver’s side mirror, along with the words “Stay Alert” and “Pull Over.” They encourage drivers to yield the right of way to emergency vehicles that have their lights and sirens… Continue
