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!

If things such as Sepsis, Drug Use, Medication issues, Anxiety, Pain, etc.. have been ruled out, and the rate is still >160 (or whatever number you use). How else do you determine S-Tach Vs. SVT? Does a 12 Lead Help (QRS Complexes facing different directions due to different pathways etc..) or a simple 4 Lead?…

Highly unusual for this to be sinus at that rate!

Adenosine for sinus tachycardia: Try to avoid this!
I experience bouts of tachycardia. I had it investigated about 5 years ago after being woken during the night by projectile vomiting and feeling my heart racing/thumping with carotid pulse that I could certainly palpate but had no chance of counting (whether the 2 symptoms were related or coincidental, I don't know). I've had multiple…
