  • what is your level of medical training.

    What level have you taken your medical training too. And. Why? Do you think you could use more? My training is as follows.
    First responder ems trained.
    ACLS training.
    GSW Triage
    AED and manual defibrillator.
    O2 sats and administration.
    RSI .
    A lot of these I need to recert for but I still remember most if not all of my training.

      If not becoming one maybe at least get the training for the future. The more you know the better off you are.

          I took a first responder college course while stationed on Guam in 1989. I was CPR certified by the American Red Cross, but it is expired now. Basic first aid trained in the USMC.

            Basic 1st Aid along with Military Combat Lifesaver Courses and such.

            I really need to work on this and it's good of you to bring it up! Kids need to get involved too. I rely on my wife alot and pick up on her skills in this area which she deals with on a regular basis.

            I guess you could say we keep each other in balance between my knowledge and hers. I really should work on 1st aid though.

              I do not have nearly as much as I would like. I recieved really good trainging when I went trhu medical massage therapy school, back in ..2000-2002. Good referance to bones, muscles, nerves, and ailments..
              I have taken cpr and first aid, a while back
              I have tons of medical books and first aid books.. try to stay knowledgable. Not anything near what I want to be. Basic first aid is all...
              I have given birth 4 times, and although no expert, have read many, many books on childbirth, natural birth..etc and have always wanted to be a midwife. I have confidence I could assist in a labor/deliver situation.
              The Mr has taken course after course in the military. He is a wealth of knowledge in that area...
              Again, learning more is key!!!
              If the zombies chase us, Im tripping you!!!

                  :) awesome!!! My husband "delivered" our 2 girls in the tub at the birthing center. I had gestational diabetes (all 4 times) and he wouldnt let me give birth at home... Ah, its not too bad, we were in and out pretty quickly! Its great that you were so "hands on", literally!!!

                    I agree, actually I found I enjoyed it after helping him study for alot of his tests. LOL just need some real course work to back it up.

                      Hands on is the best teacher. If I find time I want to re cert and just do the VFD so I can pick and choose when I work.

                              I have been through pretty much the same:

                              First responder ems trained.
                              ACLS training.
                              GSW Triage
                              AED and manual defibrillator.
                              O2 sats and administration.

                              Recieved most of my training through the military and working in surgery centers.
                              I currently work in a VA hospital and get all of my recerts there. I do need to learn more. Have been thinking about surgical RN school.
