"Team EMS-12 Lead" (Christopher Watford, Tom Bouthillet and David Baumrind) at the EMS 10 Awards

It's been an amazing week at EMS Today 2012! As you probably already know (if you've been following our Facebook page) I won an EMS 10 Award on Wednesday night.

I was nominated by our good friend David Hiltz from the American Heart Association (a previous EMS 10 Award honoree and well known for his work with HeartSafe Communites) and co-nominated by Associate Editors Christopher Watford and David Baumrind.

This is a tremendous honor but I'm very congizant that I couldn't do it without such awesome friends and mentors! The EMS 12-Lead blog and podcast would not be what it is without Christopher and David.

"Podmedic" Jamie Davis, Tom Bouthillet and Ted Setla discuss the Code STEMI Web Series on the MedicCast

This week was also marked by the release of Episode 1 of the Code STEMI Web Series at First Responders Network! I've seen the first episode a couple of times but being there at the premier was really amazing!

Special thanks to Ted Setla and Chris Eldridge from First Responders Network and Erik Denny from Physio-Control (our indispensable partner on the road) for making this possible! I'm delighted to have been a part of it! 

Episode 1 was very well received! In fact, a couple of top-notch EMS systems are very interested in having us come out to feature their STEMI systems and the locations sound amazing! So keep your fingers crossed. We'd love to continue this series!

Premier of the Code STEMI Web Series at the Physio-Control Learning Center

Kelly and I are having a wonderful time. We're seeing lots of old friends and making some new ones, too! EMS 2.0 has been called an idea and it's been called a movement. More than anything else we've come to realize it's about friendship and it's about relationships.

It may have started online but it's accomplishing some amazing things in the real world!

12 Lead ECG – Lead Placement Diagrams
I have been doing EKG's for the past thirty years. It use to be that you always lay the patient in the supine position but here lately I have been told that with the patient sitting up right will not change the EKG, is this so ?

Understanding Atropine
Hi Tony, thank you for writing. It's always a bit of a gamble to give opinion in such topics without being there, however, addressing ventilation is a must. The rate could be secondary to vagal stimulation and/or respiratory depression, but it sounds like the patient is compensating pretty well when it comes to the hemodynamic…

Understanding Atropine
Looking for an opinion. Had a pt. who was unconscious from unknown etiology, Agonal respiration = 6, SPO2 = 59, heart rate =37 sinus bradycardia, B/P = 137/80 . We ventilate the pt. approx for 2 minutes without change in status. Would you have administered atropine or continue with BVM to attempt to correct hypoxia,…

57 year old male: Chest Discomfort
I'm sorry but I don't see any flutter here. With a rate of 150 we are at the very upper limit of sinus tach. No O2 is indicated with a pulse ox of 94%, especially if you are thinking cardiac. Place in position of comfort, large bore IV, fluid bolus, ASA, nitro, capnography, complete assessment…
