    I seen this posted five years ago and I was just wandering if ya'll had any input in it or new ones......

    I have two....You are new to the EMS when...

    You lay awake at night waiting for "the call".
    On a minor jammed my finger call you take the defibulator and every bag from the ambulance in.

    4. You are the one to deliver the newborn....

    5. You find yourself writing the majority of reports....

    6. You have no clue how to take a manual blood pressure.....

    7. On an EKG you still refer to the rhythm as bumpy and spikey things....

    8. When you have no clue you are still getting pranked.....

    Ugh, midterms were last week. (Hence why I haven't posted in a while.) I'll be glad to get this semester over as I only have one left. Then it's grad school. Thanks for asking bro.

    You spell defibrillator as "defibulator"


    P.S. I'm normally not the spelling police but so many people do it I had to add it.

    Don't worry, it'll cool off around November. If you can hold out that long!

    How about"You have spent too much time with machines when you report BP in psig."?
    I constantly worried my instructor last year by doing that.Even after numerous corrections,I'd do it as a joke in class.Clinicals got the required report.
    Something else that worried the instructors:we had a Res-Q-Randy to practice our skills on and one classmate was going slow enough that eventually the instructor called her patient deceased and told me to confirm no vitals and such.
    I couldn't resist.I checked the vitals and looked up at my teacher to say"He's dead,Jim.You get his watch.I'll get his wallet."
    He just wandered off to his office mumbling something about needing to think or drink.I couldn't tell.

    Delaware is NOT the South.Florida is not the South,either.Too many people from NY and other Northern states have moved there.

    You are new to the EMS when...
