    Ex Pro Firefighter. Passed the prelim EMT Basic with a score of 98. My backasswards dept. in S. Tx. only let me test for ECA, which I obtained, in 02.
    Worked lots of traumas and others before during and after, though. Lot's of love and respect for the Medics here!! (Not to mention the Army years..!)

    I am a former medic, and now maintain my skills because of the remote area that I live in, EMS response times to my location exceed 30-45 minutes.

    My past certifications/training levels.

    Navy Corpsman, HM8404 1994-1998
    US Army Medical Specialist, 91B 1989-1994
    Texas EMT-P 1990-2005
    National Registry EMT P 1990-2005


    My last Active Duty billet was with 3 MEF and TAD to the USNH Okinawa instructing:

    PHTLS
    ACLS
    ATLS/BTLS
    BLS
    EVOC

    I have a lot of experience in the field and clinical settings, but I am always willing to share and learn new information as well. I don't know it all and some of my skills are dated but the basics always work.

    I'm 39, and i live and work in the philippines. Spent most of my late teen years as a volunteer in a Emergency Reaction Group (hey, it was a great way to spend my ROTC time). found myself digging a lot of people out of an earthquake and a volcanic eruption back then. went into medical school in 93. later took up Pediatrics, but soon got sick of that and went into Emergency Medicine. Been an ER Doc for nearly 8 years now. Used to work in a Trauma Center, but left there to work in a provincial hospital.

    I'll make my second post a second intro, as it was this sub-forum that finally motivated me to join, and I'll probably open my mouth here before long.

    I'm a former EMT-Basic, I let my licensure lapse to pursue "higher" education (psych and pre-med. I'm currently a college burn-out, though I'll get around to finishing it up eventually). Though I wasn't Wilderness cert'd, I spent a lot of time in the back-country,and working in the extreme-rural ranch environment (Hey, I grew up a cowboy... and saddle bags hold a lot of med kit).
    Now I'm an off again on again (mostly off, this season) firefighter with the US Forest Service, and giving a lot of thought to going back to school and continuing with EMS.

    Here and there I've picked up training in this or that related to first aid, EMS, and medicine. I'm all about learning more, and more, and more about these things.
    I grew up 50 miles from a paved road, and 60 from a hospital or veterinarian - I learned a lot about first aid and medicine on people and critters (what us back-country folks call "doctorin'")out of necessity as a kid, and the habit just stayed with me.

    I also do some writing on medical topics for the layman, and have designed and taught a basic med course for the armed citizen that bridges the TCCC into the civilian self-care realm.

    Looking forward to discoursing with y'all.

    Hi y'all,

    I am currently a Student Registered Nurse Anesthetist (SRNA, class of 8/2010). Have spent several years in critical care (ICU) in Vascular and Transplant surgery but we saw all types of stuff and plenty of trauma. I am, and have been, at a major academic institution in the southeast.

    Recently, I have seen trauma from a new perspective in anesthesia. I will tell you this; you combat medics and first responders have my respect and appreciation as we can sometimes save patients because of the groundwork y'all did in the field!

    I look forward to reading the stuff here and hopefully giving some contribution!
