    2/9/2016 EMT License Renewals, Dr. Martens on Federal DEA Legilslation

    in Caregiving

    This webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, February 9, 2016.


    Our first guest at 5:00 minutes into the program was EMS Office Licensing Coordinator Helen Pullen with the State of Wisconsin.  We discussed what is required to renew your EMT, paramedic, or emergency medicala responder liccense as all state licenses expire as of June 30, 2016.  The license renewal website is https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/ems/licensing/renewal.htm.


    At 20 minutes into the program State of Wisconsin EMS and Trauma Medical Director Dr. Suzanne Martens joined us to explain House of Representatives bill 4365, Protecting Patient Access to Emergency Medication Act.  It has been recognized that EMS technically operates outside of the current DEA rules for controlled substances for pain and seizures.  The DEA has allowed this to continue, but has stated it cannot do so without a change in the actual regulations.  A draft bill to change these regulations has been written and proposed.  The House of Representatives is processing it, and will vote in the near future.  Without this bill change, all administration of controlled substances will require radio/phone contact for an order with medical control; and the ordering and stocking of these medications will be complex and costly, with potentially every ambulance being considered an "office".  Since the majority of requests for paramedic intercepts involves controlled substances, this impacts all levels of care.  >> Click for HR4365 Toolkit and how to contact your local elected federal representative.


    Co-hosts included Joe Covelli and Patrick Ryan, and the program lasted 30 minutes.

    The Classic Khmer Adventure On Wheels-Cambodia's Bamboo Train

    in Travel

    I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the  bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.  


    The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter?  Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.


    The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.


    A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.


    Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off. 


    The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular. 


    And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".

    DRAGNET "Sixteen Jewel Thieves" The Golden Age Of Radio Original Broadcast 1950

    in Television

    DRAGNET: This exciting episode is titled "Sixteen Jewel Thieves". Sit back, relax, transport yourself back in time to the Golden Age of Radio


    Dragnet  is an American radio series, enacting the cases of a dedicated Los Angeles police etective, Sergeant Joe Friday and his partners. The show takes its name from the police term "dragnet", meaning a system of coordinated measures for apprehending criminals or suspects.


    Dragnet is perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of police work. Dragnet earned praise for improving the public opinion of police officers.


    Actor and producer Jack Webb's aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting.


    Of all the crime dramas that ever appeared on radio, none can beat the intencity and suspence of DRAGNET. It's no-nonsense approach to presenting the dry, but realistic daily routines of police work, plus the stark drama of fighting criminals, made this series an all-time classic, both on radio, and later on, television. DRAGNET continues to be an all-time classic, and, is the drama that set the standard of all police dramas that followed it, have tried to emulate. None have been able to do so since.

    1/26/2016 EMS Training: "Flipping the Classroom"

    in Caregiving

    This live webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, January 26, 2016.


    Our guests included two individuals with Lifestar EMS in West Bend, WI - Assistant Training Coordinator Tyler Christifulli and Field Training Educator Sam Ireland.  They discussed how they have successfully been using field educators at their base locations, and also sending out to staff pre-training podcasts to encourage education and discussion. They call their program, "Flipping the classroom".


    Lifestar's approach to EMS education included the following:


    Identifying the epidemic of bad teaching practices that surround EMS.



    Using old power points
    Strict outlines
    Crowded slides


    What has Lifestar done to reinvent the way we approach education?



    Field Educators
    White boards
    Flipping the classroom
    Simplified power points and flip chart


    The techniques of running a good simulation.



    You don't need expensive equipment to run a good sim
    Video recording and critique playback
    Always succeed in simulations
    Takes a lot of preparation to run an efficient and dynamic simulation.


    To view and listen to the February 2016 pre-training podcast, "Patterns, Pathways, and Pain", as an example, completed by Lifestar EMS, click here.


    Join co-hosts Chris Anderson, Joe Covelli, Patrick Ryan, Dan Williams and call-in guests and live listeners for 40-minutes of conversation about emergency medical services and the ambulance industry in Wisconsin the second and fourth Tuesday every month.

    Lets Talk with Rachel & Bennet, Guests The Anchor Group Publishing

    in Pop Culture

    Huffington Post columnist Rachel Thompson and Critic/writer/columnist for Night Owl Magazine and Affaire De Couer Bennet Pomerantz discuss media topics with guests. Tonight we have both partners of the Anchor Group.Elizabeth Kirke and Stacey Rourke


     


    Elizabeth Kirke wanted to be an author before she even knew what an author was. She used to say that she wanted to be an artist, but that was only because she was too young to write and had to tell stories with pictures instead. She hasn't stopped writing since she learned how. It wasn't long before she dreamed of becoming an author and couldn't be happier now that that dream is a reality.


     


    Like most slightly-nosy, avid readers, Elizabeth can't resist trying to catch a peek at books she sees people reading when out in public to see if she can figure out what it is. While doing just that one day, she realized that it would probably be the coolest-thing-ever if she caught a complete stranger reading one of her books. That's her new dream.


    Stacey Rourke is the author of the award winning YA Gryphon Series as well as the chillingly suspenseful Legends Saga. She lives in Michigan with her husband, two beautiful daughters, and two giant dogs. She loves to travel, has an unhealthy shoe addiction, and considers herself blessed to make a career out of talking to the imaginary people that live in her head.


    Anchor Group Publishing is a traditional publisher with the simple goal of launching quality literary works meant to engage, inspire and transport readers to exciting new horizons. Our crew consists of authors, editors, illustrators and avid readers, all who share a mutual passion for the written word..

    The 4th Branch: Guardian-ad-litem, broker of the court

    in Current Events

    The Fourth Branch with host Debbie Carroll: Guardian-ad-Litem, Broker of the Court. 6 - 8 pm PST / 7 - 9 pm MST / 8 - 10 pm CST/ 9 - 11 pm EST. Beware the appointment of a guardian-ad-litem, the attorney for the State, to represent the interests of your child in juvenile or divorce courts, or in alleged criminal cases or truancy cases.  Our featured guest whose identity is protected, will reveal the chameleon nature of the role of guardian-ad-litem. Do not confuse this character with guardianship procedures where you can petition with your own family members.  Online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/truthemerges/2016/01/22/the-4th-branch-guardian-ad-litem-broker-of-the-court OR call our GUEST LINE (347)855-8301. press 1 if you want to join in the conversation.


    The Thursday, Janurary 21, show will feature shocking information about the ease with which a judge can assign a Guardian-ad-Litem to a minor, a mental incompetent, or "all persons not in being."  This can be done WITHOUT a hearing, in Colorado family courts, to determine incompetence!  Why would a judge do something like this?  The courts are giving third-party guardians-ad-litem, these complete strangers with unfettered power, medical and financial decision making over YOUR FAMILY.
