    Ok, pub friends....wish me luck for my State EMT-B test tomorrow night! If I pass, I'll buy a round...heck I may buy two...bring your friends in!

    Let's see if I've got it straight..."hey, can you hear me (rub sternum), check breathing, check pulses, cap refill, skin temp/color, expose, listen for breath sounds, blood sweep...load & go...put on NRB w/ 15lpm....begin rapid, head, eyes/nose/ears/mouth, jugulars/trachea/cervical, c-collar, palp abdomen, pelvis, legs, pedal pulse/PMS, arms, rollover & check back...on backboard, straps, head rolls, tape. Back of ambo...detailed assessment, vitals, reassess every 5 minutes." How's that for 11 minutes?

    My partner's got medical so all I really need to worry about is vitals (but I still have the SAMPLE/OPQRST down). Heading out for EVOC now...let's hope I don't run over too many cones.

    Sky you've got it nailed! After your tests we'll talk about my conditon. Wouldn't want to scare you yet. I'm already having that drink on you as I know you will do great.

    Malahat: will check my registry and see what places are still hot in DC for you. Will get back to you. When do you leave for DC.

    Dems I look forward to June 18th (I think) isn't that when you are done with the long ride-a-longs? Then we'll have another little party waiting for you.

    Hey Rookie, I could sure use some more Greek salad and Oozo. But then Weruj probably drank all the Oozo and I know I ate my share of salad.

    Have to go to dinner so will chat later.

    A nice cold Oozo actually sounds good, JoJo...one for me, one for you coming right up. Just one though...don't actually like that drink, but tonight it's all good. (Take your meds before we start, ok!!)

    Haven't been to Carpool's Malahat...will have to try it within the next week or two.

    Good luck sky, I know you'll do well! Besides...we have the party already planned...so you better pass!
    Josh-congrats on getting the 12's...a very fine monitor! I just hope the service I work for has them when I get my medic.
    The party will have to be on the 19th for me...my last shift is the 18th from 8a-midnight...maybe I'll drag myself in after....

    DO you guys have the 12-lead "update" for the 11's? or do you guys not do 12-leads?

    no we are using the 11's for 12 leads .............we bought one reconditioned by physio and then we turned around and went to a true cardiac save and the person wanted to make a donation to us ........so they bought us another 11 ~! this was before the 12's were even out..........

    You guys got me curious on the LPs now. Within the next few weeks I should be "testing out" on my Medic 3rd (our Lt makes us take that before we can ride with the medics...basically shows us how to get the IV ready and hook up the LP). I thought I remembered it just having 4 leads. When i did my ED rotation they used a 10 lead, I believe, but only put 8 on. What's the difference between the two ya'll are talking about?

    What you drinking Leuit?

    the "leads" are the direction of how the curtrent flows to the wires....but most people refer to the leads as the actual wires....for instance..a 3 wire set up sees 3 leads or directions...a 4 wire sees 6 leads...and a 12-lead EKG actually uses only 10 wires....I hope that clears things up for you and doesn't confuse you more...lol

    [as skyraider slumps down into the chair in a corner...flushed with embarrassment...then sits back up straight thinking that as a newly EMT-B to be...she's not "supposed" to know all that stuff yet.]

    Thanks for the clarification, guys? I just assumed a lead was a wire hookup to the body. Who made y'all so smart anyway? You been eatting your salmon regularly...

    Enough smart talk....I'll try one of your Selects, Josh...have yet to try one. Can someone turn on some Jimmy Buffett???

    "Havana Daydreaming..."

    Speaking of a foreign land....mom wants to take a New Year's Eve trip to Peru!! Get that! Interesting... I don't even know what people do in Peru, except maybe use llamas to carry their goods from one place to another! How is that for ignorance!

    Once I finish this Select, I'll try a Sam Adams...the Oozo went to my head.

    I'm going out of town tomorrow for a job interview in another state. The idea of moving is overwhelming, but it's a great opportunity. I'm just sooo nervous! Slide a beer this way, I need to relax!
