NREMT Transition

While compiling my NREMT re-certification paperwork today, I found a few interesting items.

First, and most important, Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services (KBEMS)  has opened the transition web course applications for paramedics who will re-certify NREMT in March 2013. You can follow this link for the details. http://kbems.kctcs.edu/News%20and%20Events/newsItem?id=%7B9F459294-4503-4F46-A09C-8844FAF3F85D%7D

Also, from a blog post on the Courier-Journal website, Baptist Health had a press conference on March 1, 2013 where they stated that EMTs in Kentucky will be allowed to perform 12 lead ECGs in the field. I think this is a great idea, especially given that there are many BLS only services in the state. I wonder why KBEMS has not informed the EMTs or Paramedics about this change? The link to the blog post is below, I will continue to search for more details and try to keep you informed.

Team efforts will improve heart attack care in Kentucky
