Paramedics save lives. Morticians bury their mistakes. A 23-year veteran of emergency medical services, paramedic Matthew Sias took a detour in his career to pursue the death-care business and found a complementarity between two seemingly divergent careers. Silent Siren: Memoirs of a Life Saving Mortician is the record of some of the more memorable calls he has responded to through the years. Often intense, at times gruesome, and frequently humorous, this memoir takes you from the back seat of the medic unit racing to the hospital with a trauma patient, to the brightly lit embalming room of a funeral home, and everywhere in between. Having the ability to calmly assist a person in crisis is, perhaps, one of life's most awesome privileges. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Todd Ross.

Imploded Lives (The Invisible Robbery and the Hostage Fallout)Regular people going about their usual lives and business. On a busy day, on the streets of Los Angeles, the lives of the randomly chosen will change forever. All of them are fated to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. All of them will become hostages in one of the most remarkable bank robberies of all time. Two disguised men calling themselves Mr. Abbott and Mr. Costello and speaking only in electronically altered voices take the bank, and the hostages, in broad daylight. Three police agencies and a SWAT team surround the building, and the media films the bank from all visible angles. Everyone is locked in place, and everyone is watching. A police negotiator arrives on the scene and engages Mr. Abbott, seeking to assure the safety of the hostages and the nonviolent surrender of the perpetrators. The police command considers all possible moves, and the negotiator takes center stage. After several communications, the hostages slowly walk from the bank and are greeted by the waiting police and paramedics. As the hostages are interviewed by the police, the building is cleared room by room. No one remains inside. With hundreds of eyes on the building throughout the crisis, both the hostages and almost $700,000 have disappeared - it doesn't seem possible. The perpetrators and the money are simply gone.The robbery and the media attention exposes secrets that forever change the lives of some of the hostages. The personal trauma for some of them has just begun, as the ripple effects of the robbery and the national media attention it brings turn their worlds upside down and threaten their future lives. LAPD detectives Stacey Gray and Jeff Butler begin an incredible journey to discover how the perpetrators and the money disappeared, leaving no forensic evidence. Who are they? And the tenacious detectives will not give up - no matter what.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott R. Smith. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/119498/bk_acx0_119498_sample.mp3.

A cricothyrotomy (also called thyrocricotomy, cricothyroidotomy, inferior laryngotomy, intercricothyrotomy, coniotomy or emergency airway puncture) is an emergency incision through the skin and cricothyroid membrane to secure a patient's airway during certain emergency situations, such as an airway obstructed by a foreign object or swelling, a patient who is not able to breathe adequately on their own, or in cases of major facial trauma which prevent the insertion of an endotracheal tube through the mouth. A cricothyrotomy is usually performed by emergency physicians, trauma surgeons, trauma and critical care physician assitants (PA's) or paramedics as a last resort when control of the airway by usual means (an endotracheal tube through the mouth) have failed or are not feasible. This technique is considered easier and faster than a tracheostomy, but is only used when oral or nasal intubation is not possible. This procedure does not require manipulation of the cervical spine. However, for a non-physician, it does require special training and authorization from local medical direction prior to being performed, depending on local medical protocols.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A vacuum splint is a device like a small vacuum mattress that is used in emergency medicine as a temporary splint. Vacuum splints operate by extracting air from the splint itself to enable the thousands of polystyrene balls inside the splint to mold around the injured body part similar to a orthopedic cast. Vacuum splints are primarily used by paramedics the world over to splint trauma-related injuries, joint dislocation, subluxation, and extremity fractures. Advantages of the vacuum splint include the ability to provide support whilst relieving pressure at the injury site and the ability to conform to any shape. The limb may also be x-rayed with the splint in situ.
