Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?

Fayton Hollington is an award winning Published Poet with three completed novels, a number of screenplays, and two sitcom pilots. His book Conception of a Dialysis Patient (the untold truths) http://amazon.com/Fayton-Hollington/e/B00M4BIV5Y covers his ordeals starting with Lupus at the age of 12 on through kidney failure and dialysis.
From the Author: "Thrust into the world of dialysis as an adult, it is from my chair, the unspoken truths are bared. The raw emotion of bewilderment generated by this necessity, between loved ones and friends is unnerving. The plights we as patients endure, while fettered to this reality, becomes poignantly thought provoking. It is tantamount to the ambush of a tsunami, with regard to our daily uncertainties. The untold truths surfacing, during this vital and daunting treatment is up-close. Conception of a Dialysis Patient (the untold truths), is beyond compare, certain to strike a chord in anyone who draws breath."
Joyce speaks with Anne Wilson, CEO of Kidney Health Australia (kidney.org.au), an organization dedicated to helping all Australians maintain good kidney health throughout their lifetimes.
While traditionally focused on kidney diseases that reduce kidney function and may lead to dialysis and transplant, several years ago the organization undertook also to support people with kidney cancer. It now works not only for awareness of issues that may degrade kidney function, it works too to raise awareness of the early signs of kidney cancer and connect people diagnosed with any of these issues find the help they need.
In addition to her work with Kidney Health Australia, Anne also serves with Joyce on the Leadership Team of the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC.org), an international network of patient support and advocacy organizations established with the mission of improving the quality of life of patients and their families living with kidney cancer. IKCC provides information, support and assistance to national and regional non-profit kidney cancer organizations. All organizations are welcome to participate.

possible, do's and don'ts, how to listen to the patient and so much more.
