    Methadone and Suboxone in the CF

    Hi all! Given the increasing rates of opioid addiction throughout society as a whole, I was wondering if I could get some feedback as to how methadone or Suboxone treatment is viewed in the CF. Are methadone/sub patients ostracized and completely peered out or are they accepted into their peer...

    Conscious Sedation Procedures in Field Hospitals

    I know that this may seem like a foolish question, but what is the standard conscious sedation procedure used in field settings. Is it the same as what one would find in a North American ED such as the combination of midazolam (Versed) and fentanyl or in some cases, infusions of smaller doses of...

    Army.ca Dragon's Den

    Hi all! OK, as I'm sitting here with my obligatory morning coffee, I had a brainwave, whether it's a good one or not is always questionable ;) . But what I was thinking is that here on Radio Chatter, we could have a Dragon's Den kind of fun little game. Basically, like on the show, a member...

    EMS Support Services van----What is it?

    Hi all, this is my first post back in a while, but I have a question for the Paramedics on this board. The other day, I was crossing past one of the local Emerges and I noticed an EMS van parked in the ambulance bay. The van itself was just a regular full-sized van complete with the markings of...

    Civilians complaining about Police/Emergency Services' Pay

    It seems that any time the yearly salary of a police officer is brought up, most people seem to complain that "police are grossly overpaid for what they do". I have a serious bone to pick with this issue. It's so evident that the general public is simply unaware of just how risky and demanding...

    Ballistic Vests on Paramedics?

    I recall a few years ago while working as an Emerge Aide I saw a Paramedic wearing a ballistic vest. It was completely unexpected. So I asked him "Is that a ballistic vest?" he says it is. I thought to myself "Who would want to shoot a Paramedic"?! Ballistic vests amongst Paramedics became a lot...

    HESH vs. HEAT

    What are the primary differences between HESH and HEAT ammunition? I know that HESH has the squash head that flattens to the target, but HEAT I'm a little more hazy with except for the fact that it delivers a shaped charge. Are there any differences beyond the fact that HEAT relies more on...

    joining the RCEME

    Hi all, I've been considering several different trades if I'm successful in re-enlisting a few years from now. One of my passions is welding. I'm pretty darn handy with Stick and pretty good with MIG. I'm going to be taking welding night classes starting in December to improve my skills. Given...

    As we all know, there's a huge surge in prescription drug abuse across the country, especially in Southwestern Ontario, with London and Windsor being major hotspots for opioid abuse. OxyContin has hit this country like a plague and has impacted the medical and legal systems severely. Having...

    Looking for ordnance casings for sale!

    I have a decent ordinance collection going for several years now, and I'm looking for some unique casings. Anything will do, but I'm looking more for larger-sized casings. Right now, I'm looking for a casing from a Boys Anti-Tank Rifle and a casing from the 76 mm gun from a Cougar. I'd also...

    Pyxis Systems?

    Are Pyxis systems used in any portion of the CF Medical Group? I'd imagine that they're used at NDMC, but are they used beyond that? I ask because biometrics within healthcare have become the norm and quite frankly, a necessity. Just one funny Pyxis story, I recall one night working as an ED...

    Re-enlisting after cancer remission

    Hi guys, I have a question that may seem odd, but I'm really curious as to its answer. In September 2007, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and despite chemo and rad therapy, I had to have a testicle removed. I know this sounds gross, but the thing is, because of this, I have to take...

    Rage Guy- Make your own CF Rage Guy Comic!

Basically, Rage Guy comics are images depicting something unfortunate happening to a bloke and him then screaming FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU. Some of them are quite funny, actually...
