Ketamine.. The Good.. The Bad.. The Ugly..

ketamine is a drug many often times misunderstood and misused. The discussion had in this episode is your deep dive into the history of Ketamine, why we use it in EMS and how we could make administration even easier for Paramedics.

Between ROSC & A Hard Place

Every cardiac arrest call has challenges. In this call review, we focus on two medic providers that have a patient who continues to fight. Hasty choices are made throughout as stress builds. Can this cardiac arrest be turned around or will the situation get the better of the providers?

99 Echo

A cardiac arrest is literally one of the most stressful calls EMS providers go through. We discuss the history, future, drugs, tactics and all things cardiac arrest to better help you the next time an echo priority or a code 99 is dispatched.

The Ol’ A**hole

A staff on high alert from an abusive asshole and an ems crew tossed into the middle. Will this crew escalate an already volatile explosive scene or will they lead everyone into the calm?

An extremely serious call with dire airway concerns is what we review today! This crew stumbles through a rushed airway procedure without evaluating the consequences of their decisions. We will see if they can produce a positive outcome in the end.

Chasing The S.T. Elevation

Heads are scratched with the 12 Lead obtained on a patient that is surely having a STEMI, until they aren’t…or are they? That is the dilemma this crew faces as they attempt to sort out signs and symptoms consistent with what they should be seeing on the cardiac monitor.
