Prozac 20mg Pills $132.00

the-handover-logoWelcome to The Handover – the Carnival of EMS!

Emergiblog is proud to host this edition of the best of the EMS blogosphere!

The theme for this month is “Emergency”.

Is there a single paramedic/EMT alive today who didn’t love this show? Is there a single nurse “of a certain age” who didn’t wish she was Dixie McCall?

That’s what I thought!

So let’s get going with Johnny and Roy and the guys of Rescue 51 as we begin The Handover…..

********************

crewI know Medics who eventually become firefighters, prozac 20mg pills $132.00 but sometimes it happens the other way around.

*****

And now let’s hear from Dixie McCall, prozac 20mg pills $132.00 the medics’ friend.  Look behind the overacting emotion and listen to the message.


No, prozac 20mg pills $132.00 nurses don’t resent paramedics or EMTs.

They have our respect.

And we will defend them just as passionately today.

We just don’t get to wear totally cool caps when we do it.

Thanks guys (and gals)…and be careful out there.

Allegra 30mg Pills $71.00

Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 chief-roy-wont-let-me-friveIn honor of the The Handover, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the new EMS carnival to be hosted here at Emergiblog on April 24th, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I invited guest blogger (and long time reader) Black Cloud ER Tech to write about his EMS experiences.

Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Many thanks to Black Cloud for taking the time share his story and perspective!

********************

“Rampart, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 this is Squad 51.  How do you copy?”

Orders for D5W, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Lactated Ringers, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 etc would follow.  Being born ten years after this show first debuted, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 “Emergency” wasn’t on my radar… until I set foot in the firehouse where I held my first EMT/Firefighter job.  After I saw the first 5-minutes of this show, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I was hooked.  It was, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and still is, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the COOLEST show I have ever seen!  It should be a prerequisite to watch seasons 1 and 2 on DVD before starting any EMT course. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 It teaches the lingo and culture behind EMS, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 as well, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and more importantly, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the rudiments of EMS… and of course, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 seeing Johnny and Roy getting their butts kicked, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 missing lunches and being up all night.

Ok, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 so maybe I am an EMS dork…

*****

I have been in EMS for over 12 years.  I started as an Explorer for the local fire department, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 then as an EMT/Firefighter, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and finally as an ER Tech.

Since day one, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I have had a black cloud.

Starting as an Explorer, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I would ride along on the Engine Co’s. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 We would bag plenty of runs. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 As an EMT/Firefighter, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 other crews would sleep through the night, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 while my crew would bag 3 or 4 after midnight. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 As an EMS coordinator for sporting events, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 no adverse incidences would have occurred in 25 years, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 but the year I coordinate the medical, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 we get not one, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 but two cardiac arrests. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Finally, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 as an ER Tech, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I get the ugliest shifts out of all of the techs in the ER. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 The black cloud has followed me all around the great state of California.

Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 We all know EMT’s, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 medics, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 RNs and MDs who have black clouds… the ones who get the proverbial sh*t thrown their way.  Whether it be the night where they run their rear ends off due to sheer volume of patients, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 or the shifts where they get the patient who takes 4x the amount of time and energy to keep them alive, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 or the crew who deals with the social drama that ends up ruining their shift, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 we all know them.

And the perfect storm? Two health care providers with black clouds working together.

*****

Black clouds inevitably lead to burn-out. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Somehow I am still standing… and am even going to nursing school to return as an ER or Trauma nurse.  More than one person has asked, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 “how do you keep doing this after getting kicked every shift?”  Are you a glutton for punishment?

And my favorite question of them all… WHY!?!?

*****

So, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 how does one ride the storm and stay interested in EMS without burning out?  I’ll share several ways that have worked for me.

1. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Take care of yourself. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00

As Fire/EMS, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I worked a system in the rural Sierra foothills.  Transport times were a minimum of 45 minutes; from time of dispatch to time of going in quarters, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 we were usually gone about 2 hours.  With my black cloud luck, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 we would bag back to back calls.  I eventually learned to get a small cooler, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and put snacks and drinks in it for my medic and I (this also won major brownie points when working the occasional shift with the EMS coordinator of the department). Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I see crews on a weekly basis who don’t pack snacks, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 run multiple back to back calls, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and complain CONSTANTLY about being hungry.We were able to hydrate and eat even though we didn’t have time.

I have carried this habit with me into the ER. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Even on the busiest shifts, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I can slam down a Gatorade and half of a peanut butter sandwich.

We, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 by nature, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 are programmed in EMS land to go-go-go. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Between shifts, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 you have to rest.  And I mean rest.  SLEEP.  I am guilty of not doing this, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 going to work on a 12 hr night shift, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 going to a chemistry lecture, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 sleeping 6 hours and then going back for another 12 hr night shift… and I’m paying for it.   I found that when I get my rest, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I am able to survive the inevitable black cloud shift much better.

2. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Know your coworkers. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00

If you are on a bus, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 in an ER etc, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 know their work habits.  This will allow you to stay one step ahead of them.  By being able to stay ahead of them, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the flow of patient care will be smoother, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 getting the patient to their destination or discharge from the ER more efficiently.  The quicker the flow, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the quicker you may be able to catch that break.  By getting to know your coworkers, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 you learn their idiosyncrasies and personalities.  I knew that when my Engine Co. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 captain was up all night with his infant son that he would be tired, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and certain “fun” things usually acceptable in the EMS world, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 weren’t so kosher.

3. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Have a comrade in EMS.

In EMS (and studies have proven this), biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the divorce rate is extremely high.  I have experienecedmy share of break ups due to the stressors of working in EMS and the lack of interest by the other party in the relationships. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 It helps to have a close friend, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 whether you work with them or not, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 who is in EMS.  It’s good to know that you can talk things over when you have the shift from hell or are questioning something that happened during your work week.  Even though my fiancé is in pediatric critical care are a local children’s hospital and understands my job, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I still have a couple close friends in EMS who I can talk to and bounce things off of.

4. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Work with the new kid. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00

When I work with paramedic interns and nursing students who do their rotations in my ER, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I accomplish two things.  I am able to pass along my knowledge and experiences to these eager beavers.   What most students don’t realize is that I am gaining something from them.   Their extreme energy level and eagerness may annoy some people;  I, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 on the other hand, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 suck up that energy.  I feel more energized when I have the new kid with me in the ER.  Their enthusiasm is greatly appreciated during the particularly bad black cloud shifts.  Because they are new, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 they always want to be where the stink is (figure of speech that is… not a code brown).They just want to do everything!  I love it!

5. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Don’t let the little things get to you. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00

If you let the little things get to you, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the black cloud will win. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Working with slackers is just one of many of the “little things”. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 We all have coworkers who kick ass and give 110%, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 but we also have those who give 55%.  Slackers are my pet peeve, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 but if I let the slackers get to me, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I would end up in “The Bin.”

6. Biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 Go the extra mile.

Everyone has a crappy day.  When you get to work, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 step up to the plate and do the best job you can.  Your patients will notice that you go the extra mile and so will family and friends.

Several years back, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I had a Code 3 return to the ER for a post cardiac arrest.  While we were busy caring for the patient, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I kept thinking of the family members in the next room.  Once we got the patient settled and the family was allowed to come be with the patient, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 I went the extra mile.  A simple smile, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 a cup of coffee, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 a teddy bear for the scared child, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 that is all it takes.  Late one night, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 some time later (during a black cloud shift, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 of course), biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 the family was exiting the hospital and stopped by the ER to say hi.  The elderly husband of the patient remembered me by name, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 shook my hand, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and thanked me and the ER team for their care and compassion.  A lot of times the little things go unnoticed, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 but when they are noticed, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 it makes the black cloud a little more bearable.

*****

These are just a few things from your friendly neighborhood Black Cloud ER Tech.

I do have shifts once every blue moon that have me saying “I am too old for this stuff, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00” and I’m only 26 years old (keep in mind I started at 14 as an fire explorer).

Somehow I am able to make it through the rest of my work week, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 go to school for my nursing prereqs, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 enjoy time off with my fiancé, biaxin 250mg pills $163.00 and come back to work the next week ready to give 110% to my patients and coworkers.

{Editor’s note: and he does! : ) }
