The Other Night On The Ambulance…

The other night, during a “Q” shift, my partner and I were chatting to pass the time. Somehow we came onto the idea of writing a massive series of books/articles/whatever, describing everything you could possibly want to know about EMS. So far, our collection includes:

The Newbie’s Guide To Surviving Long Shifts: You’re A Machine…A Slowly Rusting Machine

The Magic of Reverse 24’s: Sleep Is What?

Wait, What Day Is Today?

” ‘EMT-B’ Stands For ‘Empty My Trash, B****’ “, And Other Things Paramedics Regret Saying To Their Basics

“I Can See The Head!”, And Other Things You Don’t Want To Hear From The Front Seat

“Patching In” In 30 Seconds Or Less: Nobody Cares About The Patient’s Favorite Color
