Last year I started a weekly article for members of my patrol that has since expanded to the region and beyond covering medical advances, continuing education and great learning opportunities.
Because the information applies not only to Ski Patrollers but EMS in general I've been requested to expand the scope and coverage. Articles like MacGyver Medicine, a five part series on shock and CPR updates the articles have garnered a large following. This is a free blog.
I'd like to invite anyone, members here or other medical friends to go to http://medicalmondayems.wordpress.com to follow these articles. If you find the articles interesting or informative click "follow" in the lower right hand corner and enter your email. You will be asked to confirm the email address but then will receive all future updates. I publish a new article every Monday morning.
I try to keep up with new and innovative changes in pre-hospital medicine and have been paramedic for 22 years, Patroller for 14 and an Educator for 20. I try to make new and difficult concepts easy to understand and learn.
