The rants and ravings of a paramedic on prehospital care, leadership, stress psychology, systems, and whatever happens to catch my eye.
I got started in prehospital medicine nine years ago as a bright eyed 17 year old looking for adventure and a way to serve my country. A year later I found myself in the mountains of Eastern Afghanistan working as a combat medic embedded in and infantry platoon. From that point on I knew a found a calling, the challenge of working critically ill patients in austere environments became a drug to me. Since then I became a paramedic, an Army Medical Instructor, worked on the streets of Boston and New York City, gained various critical care certifications, and earned the title of Army Flight Paramedic.
