    Default Paramedic School

    So you think you're ready for this? You think you want to be a paramedic, do ya? I hear all these young whippersnappers coming out of EMT school thinking they're ready, but in all actuality, the paramedics world is a dangerous place. Here you go, Sport: there's a call somehwere and you got a PT with unstable angina on a second story of a burning building, guess what Hot Shot... that dude aint gonna be climbing down the ladder himself. There aint no magic pixie dust to get you up there either. That's why it takes a combination of skills, patience, and more skills. You gotta be ready for the call, and if you think you are, guess again. Just hang in there. It may take some time, but it's worth getting that hands-on time. Just hang in there, strap on a pair, and quit your griping. You'll do fine, simple as that!

    If he is having angina on the 2nd story of a burning building I would think the last thing he should worry about is chest pain. On a lighter note i do a bottle of pixie dust

    Where I am from the medics dont go into burning buildings and make rescues like that (firefighters job). The other thing I have seen and worked with some medics that went from basics to medics in less than 2 years and they run circles around the 10-15 year people.

    What on Earth are you talking about? Who's going to render medical care in a burning building?

    He has a similar thread over on the firefighter's forum...seems he goes off the meds for a bit and rambles incoherently. Some of the old-timers jumped him pretty good.

    My advice would be to do the same thing you would do with the schizophrenic you meet on the sidewalk mumbling to themselves....

    Eyes forward and keep moving!
