The bag is as full as ever but we can jam some more in as always. This week:
OMG EMT <- Jim watched a few episodes - pleazzzzzzz.
In hospital time, EMS utilization and it's effects on patient care
Summertime, drownings and July 4th shenanigans.
Plus member questions and more.
Join us for another fast paced episode of EMS discussion. This week we bring up the topic of trust in EMS. How do we develop trust with our patients, ED staff and our EMS partners? Each has its own approach and it's own value in how we do our jobs and how successful we are as EMS Professionals.

EMS has a language of it's own. Have you ever tried talking to someone outside of EMS about a call you had, the way you do things at work or even explaining how a protocol works? They usually get confused, don't understand or it's just too much and they don't care.
They may even think you are cold or uncaring based on a story you may tell or frustration you described from a call.
This week we talk about this language and why we do it, how it helps us cope and if we should even bring outsiders into our little inside stories.
We also plan on talking about how easy it is to treat from the sidelines and specifcally a recent EMS/Police issue from NYC that was video taped and is being judged from the sidelines of FaceBook and other social media outlets.
Join Jim, Josh and Dave as they discuss the above and welcome any guest callers and chat room participants live.
Join the live EMS Paramedic talk radio show with Jim Hoffman and Dave Brenner this week. Josh may call in and join the crew as a car cast. This week we talk about 24 hour shifts, 12 leads and other great EMS topics.

EMS is tough. Lots of training, stress, patients, families and even supervisors all make a days work in the EMT/Paramedic life. But what about when your very own partner is a total ass. Maybe to you, to patients or even other health care professionals?
How do you handle this type of personality trait? If you have been in EMS for a bit you are sure to have been exposed to some extent a partner like this or may even still are.
Join us for this episode as we talk about ways to deal with these "partners" on a personal and professional level.
We will also be answring some listener questions and maybe even a few hot news topics thrown in for good measure.

Our guest this week is Stephen Chao who is a Doctor of Physical Therapy.Stephen works in the outpatient rehab department at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. Stephen studied engineering as he has always loved the study of mechanics and solving complex problems. He transferred to PT school and became a paramedic as he realized that engineering was missing the key piece of being able to directly benefit people. Stephen's unique life journey truly evolved when he started working at Sloan Kettering where he tried to, " help my patients be able to do the activities that they want, or need, to do everyday.My job ranges from restoring a patient to participating in sports after surgery to re-training an individual to walk after treatment for a brain tumor to getting arm range of motion back after a mastectomy for breast cancer." Listen and hear this dedicated,compassionate healer describe his vital work.
