Sample text

If I saved one life, just one, then all the other stuff, all the deaths and suffering, has been worth it. Almost without exception, the medics I've talked to and worked with feel the same way. They express it differently, in their own words, but deep down, they feel the same. It's no small irony that the symbol for EMS is the Star of Life. That adequately describes all the people working in EMS. We're all Stars of Life. -- Donna 60 Chapter 3 -- Dialing 911 61 It never ceases to amaze me the things that people will jam into their butts.

Fifty to eighty percent of this job is 54 psychology. If somebody is having chest pains, sure the oxygen and nitro will help, maybe morphine will help, but at the same time, you have to convince the patient that what you're giving them, what you're doing for them will help. A lot of times it does. The patient has to want to get better. Being a paramedic has given me a different perspective on life and death. I live life to the fullest and I appreciate every day that I'm alive. I've seen too many people die that shouldn't have died and people live that shouldn't have lived.

49 My advice to a new medic? Don't expect to save the world. Patients are going to die. Children are going to die. Teenagers are doing to die. Mothers, fathers and grandparents are going to die. There are times when God allows us to intervene, but there are also times when God's punched someone's ticket and there's nothing that I, as a paramedic, as a person with finite abilities, is going to be able to change. The other advice is don't expect to be appreciated. Even when you do save the world, a lot of people aren't going to notice, a lot of people aren't going to understand.
