Wednesday Missive: On Innovation and Gratitude

As most of you know by now, "Team EMS-12 Lead" had a lot to celebrate at the EMS Today conference in Baltimore. Tom Bouthillet received his well deserved EMS 10 award, and his Code STEMI Web Series premiered as well. Lots of great stuff going on!

The premier of Code STEMI happening the same time as the EMS 10 award was very apropos.  The web series–incredibly informative and well done–is a great example of Tom's ability to innovate.  He is always pushing for new ways to raise the bar of cardiovascular education and care in this country and abroad.

Most of all, though, we want to celebrate you: our readers, listeners, and followers. We all have busy lives, with lots of ways to spend our free time. We've had over 2,000,000 page views and 5,500 comments on the website alone in the last 4 years! We want to thank you for choosing to spend some of your time with us.

As you improve your skills, you inspire us to keep getting better ourselves, always trying to provide worthwhile and interesting content. Not to mention, we learn something new from you guys and gals every day!

So as we celebrate Tom and his terrific accomplishments, we want to also celebrate you as well.

Thanks for your support, what you do makes a difference!

Focused medical evaluation was performed in the ED and emergent cardiology consultation was obtained. Although there is not clear ST elevation on the 12 lead the interventional cardiologist knows the data that over 70% of VF cardiac…

The 12 Leads of Christmas: V3
As a technician, I absolutely love how comprehensive these posts are. Although I do not have the advanced knowledge or understanding of a licensed provider, I try to absorb as much as I can from posts like these.

The Trouble with Sinus Tachycardia
Had a pt today with a rate @ and around 160, it was indeed sinus tachycardia. The tachycardia was secondary to a stimulant which caused over stimulation of sympathetic nervous system ie sympathomimetic O.D. The treatment was fluid and a benzo. Problem solved.

When looking at how the heart sits in the chest and how things are named remember they were probabily named during autopsys when the cadaver was on its back.
