One Response to Status Asthmaticus, Phenergan, and Episode 65

    Another great show. Just commenting about the driving question. Driving age at my service it is controled by the vehicle insurance carrier. We recently changed insurance carriers so currently drivers must me at least 21. The old standard was 23. We cannot hire basics under the age of 21 because they can’t work the back and they can’t drive. We run crews consisting of a paramedic and a basic or an intermediate. That being said, I’m like you. I would rather care for my patient than drive. Over the years I’ve spent more time riding backwards than I have riding forward. I would suggest that those who do drive remember; however, that their partner is trying to work in the back and it isn’t easy to intubate or start a line while rounding a curve at 65. SLOW DOWN and let the person in the back use those skills that they have to care for that patient. Pull over and get back there and help if you have to, but don’t get in such a hurry.
