"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!

64 y.o. Female with CP – “And then I gave her a NTG…”
Cardiac arrest? Its a RELATIVE contraindication. You need to use clinical gestalt. Her blood pressure is quite high, and her heart rate is average, she would probably tolerate nitro quite well. Provided she's not on beta blockers or calcium channel blocker, orthostatic hypotension etc, from what I can tell she'd compensate just fine. While there…

The 360 Degree Heart – Part I
Some models of ECG machines have an option to flip aVR upside down. In this case it looks at +30* and fills in the gap between I and II.

59 year old male: chest pressure
Besides MI and Aortic Dissection, this presentation of acute chest pain and hemodynamic compromise, associated with important dyspnea would concern me for PE, which I think should be properly investigated.

The 360 Degree Heart – Part I
As a new Paramedic, this information is very useful and helpful. I believe there is more to understanding paramedicine than what can be taught in a class and it takes the initiative of the medic to pursue. Thank you for providing this simple yet understandable concept. Honestly, it never dawned on me how the hexaxial…
