Maybe you work with patients that are wheelchair bound and may, at times, be too large or have disabilities that limit your ability to get them out of the wheelchair in a hurry. Especially when they begin to choke during meal time. I received a phone call message regarding this very situation and though we had a great discussion about what to do for the patient over the phone, the person I was talking with thought it would be a great idea for it to be made into a video training. So, here you go Maria! I hope it helps.
In this episode of RoyOnRescue, Roy talks about why cardiac arrests secondary to traumatic injuries, especially rapid deceleration accidents are so hard to resuscitate.

RoyOnRescue has the honor of interviewing a local Mixed Martial Arts champion, Black-Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and owner of a thriving BJJ/MMA and Health Improvement gym. When I met Clint Crabtree he was at the very beginning of his diabetic diagnosis. It didn’t take me long to realize that in everything Clint does, status quo is not an option. In this part 1 of 2 part interview, we hear how Clint has not only overcome a near death experience but has actually found a way to use only a fraction of his insulin and has baffled his doctors on how he has stayed so healthy as a “brittle” insulin dependent diabetic.

How can I prevent CO poisoning from my home appliances?
Have your heating system, water heater and any other gas, oil, or coal burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician every year.
Do not use portable flameless chemical heaters (catalytic) indoors. Although these heaters don’t have a flame, they burn gas and can cause CO to build up inside your home, cabin, or camper.
If you smell an odor from your gas refrigerator’s cooling unit have an expert service it. An odor from the cooling unit of your gas refrigerator can mean you have a defect in the cooling unit. It could also be giving off CO.
When purchasing gas equipment, buy only equipment carrying the seal of a national testing agency, such as the American Gas Association or Underwriters’ Laboratories.
Install a battery-operated CO detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall.http://www.cdc.gov/co/faqs.htm
