    4/14/2015 Community Paramedicine and Physicians Advisory Committee

    in Caregiving

    The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.


    The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.  Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright.  All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin.  Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.


    Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas.  An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.  Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.


    At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee.  Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher.  Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.


    As always, the live show offers caller questions.  Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.

    In Short Order -- Dr. Charles McWilliams

    in Health

    This active, Medical Order is the last such organization, carrying on the work of monastic medicine, and we wish to have it preserved for the benefit of future generations as well as serve a lasting memory of a movement that contributed significantly to the Renaissance of today’s modern medicine. This heritage included languages, transcription, folk tales, ceremonies, etc. about traditional medicine, and all the medical and nursing skills that were handed down from generation to generation including surgery and ambulatory care. These traditions and practices reflect the spirit of members and communities of the doctors from Europe to the Americas, to the Philippines. This intangible heritage is at great risk as the natural and spiritual heritage must be preserved to the world for future posterity.


    The new school emphasizes the biological sciences in relation to theistic evolution, bedside diagnosis, tropical medicine, laboratory, emergency medicine, minor surgery, chaplaincy, nursing, and rural primary care. Academic learning will work in concert with clinical rotations in the rural clinics sponsored and operated by the Order.


    Description: The program is combined online studies with clinical rotations as service to the Order's Hospitals and primary care centers. The centers are currently located in Nevis, West Indies; Quito and Santo Domingo Ecuador; Malakoff, Texas; Cyprus; with other centers developing. Enrollment is limited to members of the Order having taken monastic vows.


    Admittance into the School is by formal application with a referral of Knight in good standing. Upon application and confirmation, an appointment for personal interview is arranged.

    In Short Order -- Shani Fox, ND -- rescheduled

    in Health

    Life wants each of us to know and express the magnificence within ourselves, and to honor that magnificence in each other.


    Dr. Shani Fox’s passion for helping survivors reclaim an extraordinary life after cancer came as a “calling” in mid-life. The calling followed her observation that too many survivors, after completing acute cancer treatment, are left feeling unwell, unsupported and alone, wondering who to turn to that understands their needs.


    Dr. Shani’s mission is that every survivor transition from acute treatment directly into loving, expert care aimed at supporting complete recovery, building resilience to future disease, and leveraging the hard-won wisdom of the cancer experience to create a life of peace and deep fulfillment.


    Through her exquisite gifts of compassion and insights as physician and a life mastery coach, she is particularly skilled at helping patients overcome their fear of cancer recurrence, which may affect up to 96 percent of survivors.


    Prompted by her father’s death in 2001, Dr. Shani, as she prefers to be called, discovered she wanted to make a direct, positive difference in the lives of others, as her dad had so lovingly modeled. Although her father died from cancer, it was how he lived for “28 bonus years” following a near-fatal car accident when Dr. Shani was 15 that most impacted her.


    “With the understanding of life’s fragility tha t only such an experience can bring, he lived the remainder of his days to the fullest,” Dr. Shani shares. “He didn’t waste time or words. Every human interaction was sacred to him, and he spent every moment he could enjoying his family, leaving a legacy of happy memories to those who loved him.”

  • O ye DRYBONES , HEALTHCARE AWARENESS with SPECIAL GUEST

    in Current Events

    A fascinating documentary on Mercola site exposes the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally. One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years. The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.My top 12 cancer prevention strategies are listed, including specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress.A recent ARTICLE shows how the FDA hides important safety information when it uncovers scientific misconduct in clinical trials of pharmaceutical drugs. The names of the drugs and the company responsible for the misconduct are concealed, journal citations are left uncorrected, and claims made on drugs’ labels are left unchanged even after it’s known that they were based on bad science.According to the author, “The FDA knows about dozens of scientific papers floating about whose data are questionable—and has said nothing, leaving physicians and medical researchers completely unaware.” The author notes that these aren’t isolated incidents, but part of routine behavior by the FDA to shield Big Pharma from unwelcome scrutiny.
