I use the title of this post to prove that I am “down with the kids” and not really a middle aged paramedic going through a mid life crisis.
What I do want to do though, is point you in the direction of a blog that I recently found that I am getting alot from and Im sure some of you will too.
Its a little bit different as its more to do with teaching and discussing certain topics, more that just sharing stories and experiences. I am finding it useful for a bit of a refresher for some topics not frequently thought about since I left training school. The most recent post is about epinephrine (adrenaline), which I know sounds boring, but isnt it cool to actually know about the stuff you are using!!
Steve, the author of EMTspot gives his descriptions in such a way that complex topics are changed into simpler concepts to aid in learning them.
I really thing it is excellent reading if you are thinking of becoming and EMT or Paramedic, or even if you are a paramedic and fancy updating your own core knowledge. Remember, CPD points are the new currency in UK emergency medical services.
