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!

Conclusion: “And then I gave her a NTG…”
There is also no data I'm aware of that shows that, in the reperfusion era, nitroglycerine helps patients with STEMI who do not have elevated BP or pulmonary edema. Data is lacking in all regards.

Why on earth would you risk VF, by giving Adenosine to rule out rhythms.. This is dangerous, and foolish. There might be a slight chance that this is WPW.. You might as well just give him Cardizem, they are both AV nodal blockers... I don't know why the AHA even added this stupid idea..

The 360 Degree Heart – Part II
It is standard practice in electrocardiography to label the first 90 degrees counter-clockwise from "zero" that way. When you see a patient with "left axis deviation" you'll see that their measured QRS axis is somewhere between -30 and -90 degrees. Imagine if you saw someone with a mean QRS axis at 5 degrees. Now imagine…

I don't understand why (-)III and aVL are be labeled -60 and -30 degrees instead of 300 and 330 degrees?
