EMS excitement!

Tomorrow I start my week of shifts with one of the ALS paramedic crews in town. I really enjoy spending time seeing things from another health care providers perspective. My experience is so limited to emergency departments, I find it fascinating to see what goes on in the pre-hospital setting before our worlds collide in the hospital.

Always thought I'd want to do trauma medicine (especially flight medicine when I was working up north). So this will be another exposure for future consideration. Most of the time I think my emergency stint is over, but...who knows?

Hopefully I will get some pinches to the old adrenals over the next few days to get me out of this holiday stupor!

Lots of lifestyle benefits to emergency medicine, such as no call...

I (heart) EMS!!!

Seriously, had such a great time with the lads this past week. Very amazing welcome from everyone.

It's true--when the doors close behind you your shift is DONE!
(The main thing that is still causing me to ponder EM).
