    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.

    in Sports

    The Wisconsin Badgers look for their first victory of the season against an opponent with a winning record, as they face the USC Trojans in the 2015 Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

Can outside linebackers Joe Schobert and Vince Biegel pressure Kessler into mistakes? Will running back Corey Clement play, and if so, can he continue the positive trend of the rushing attack that was starting against Minnesota?

    Maryland vs. Wisconsin preview; Dave Aranda's departure; Badgers recruiting news

    in Sports

    Today's show is brought to you by Rent College Pads!

    The Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball team has played competitively in its first three Big Ten conference games, but ultimately having a 1-2 record with the No. 3 Maryland Terrapins on Saturday at the Kohl Center. What will the return of Wisconsin native and freshman phenom Diamond Stone mean for UW, and can Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Co. also contain Jake Layman, Jared Nickens and Rasheed Sulaimon?

    We'll also discuss the departure of defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and the pay of assistant coaches. Yet without a coordinator for defense, the Badgers picked up a commitment from Kansas native Isaiahh Loudermilk. Plus, two Wisconsin verbal commits in Cole Van Lanen and Garrett Rand will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Tex. We'll discuss their potential.

    The Green Bay Packers will travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on Sunday. Can Aaron Rodgers and the offense somehow get back on track "when it matters the most?"
