doctors, nurses, EMTs, combat medics and lifesavers, tell your story. mine is here:
>be me, 20 years old and in the middle east killing terrorists
>have some decent medical training
>have a terp that gets shot - bullet entering the shoulder and exiting through the chest into his body armor
>FUCKING PNEUMOTHORAX BATMAN
>perform needle chest decompression
>mfw he dies from blood loss anyway
Pneumothorax sucks anon. I got yelled at by s nurse because my pt who was in a car wreck had it but didn't report it because I didn't know. She said I should have been able to hear it. It was s fucking pin hole in the right lung. If it's an open wound, just cover it. Thanks for serving /b/ro
camp bucca guard in 07. shoot arab with torpedo round less than 15 ft away. eyeball pops out. other detainee rushes me xm28, he drops, didn't stop shaking, has full on seizure shits himself dies. eyeless gets up so I beat him with wooden baton until head implodes. old man originally pulled out cause he was being released that day has heart attack from the excitement and dies.
3 for 1 deal. feel great about it tbh.no investigation cause they rushed me.
Hey bud, I realize this is a bit off topic, but I've been interested in joining the ranks. I have no experience in the field other than First Aid, AED, First Responder, CPR training (i'm a security contractor). I have assisted in several crisis situations and have saved a life while on duty. I'm not blood shy and I find what little experience I have to be very interesting.
What would you say to a guy looking to get into the EMT field?
Does it require college degrees of any kind?
Any advice for someone like me?
my pleasure. getting paid to kill people legally is some kind of dream come true. still, fuck that nurse.
bizarre. pretty decent if true. and wooden baton? fucking old school nigga knocking frealz.
i'm not an EMT, i just spent time in combat with some medical training. i'm currently a 911 dispatcher of 7+ years.
i really respect EMTs. those jobs don't necessarily require college degrees, but they require a shitload of education and training. i think it is a noble field to pursue so long as you can afford/pass the required education.
OP here. doctors = heroes no doubt. i'm equally interested in a stupid fucking patient thread/comments.
>heard one where a guy got tested for diabetes after finding out his one night stand was diabetic
>heard another where a 30 year old woman had no idea having intercourse could result in pregnancy
yeah, it was a wooden baton. we had collapsible metal ones that look like an asp but was the size of a baseball bat. the wooden ones were quicker to use and more reliable with all the dust and sand corroding the expandable batons.
>me rotating by internal medicine
>this 78 year old coughing gramps is hospitalized

multikeks understood and supported. a good friend of mine is a BSN nurse in neuro sciences and has some good stories to tell. saw one on FB today that said something like "please don't ride in the bed of a truck and get into a collision at high speeds. it makes my job even harder."
