In Praise of Rogue Medic

I donít get to read other blogs as much I would like. There are a few that I check in on periodically. I read Ambulance Driver when looking for a chuckle, I read Rescuing Providence when I want to read a quality vignette of an EMS scene call. I check out EMS 12-Lead to improve my cardiology education. But for me, the one indispensible blog is Rogue Medic. This guy slays it. He takes on EMS myth and bad science always on behalf of the patient. If I want to learn something new, this is where I go. And even when he is writing about studies I am familiar with, his take on them is always insightful.

Check out his thoughts on the new JAMA paper on epi in cardiac arrest, as well as his thoughts on the recent RAMPART study comparing IM midalzolam to IV atin in status epilepticus.

Rogue Medic is an EMS hero.

    The techie in me dreams there may be a technological solution, with seamless integration of pre-hospital and inpatient charts, live updating, maybe even voice recognition that would be almost like dictation, getting everything in the correct fields in the software ... then I wake up, snort and chuckle a little. Seriously though, does anyone out…

    Make it so I don't have 6 cords to choose from and the driver for the printer works from HH to JMH to Children's to RGH and maybe I won't fax every single runform in. But I have been saying that for years.

    Peter, This is a fight that I, just like yourself and so many others have looked at in my EMS history of 25 years.I'm in a pretty unique situation as a former provider, a wife of a firefighter and someone who works with medic and firefighters across the country.
