“Selco talks about trading his EMT skills a number of times on his blog.”

That's why I have beefed up medical supplies. Hard, more expensive medical equipment I had but had to add softer supplies to treat more than two or three people.

I don't spread around to people I was an EMT. However, a couple in these townhomes manage this place and I was talking to them and told them that background as they are an older couple and I would help them if I could if they got into medical trouble. The wife looked at the husband and said, "I'm going to tell her what happened last night." She told me what happened and I asked certain questions, then told her to go to her heart doctor the next day. She said she had seen him several days ago. Told her to go anyway because what happened to her sounded like a heart attack. She went and sure enough he did an EKG and said she had a mild heart attack and changed her medicine. She hasn't had another occurrence of that since then.

She had answered "yes" to every question I asked that indicated a heart attack and I knew she had one. I checked her vital signs and they were okay right then but she needed to go back to that doctor. So, sometimes it's not what medical preps you have, it's medical knowledge to know how to interpret signs of illness that is important.
