EMS Tips

3 EMS Phrases I Detest

I detest the use of these three EMS phrases:

1) Stay and play

2) Load and go

3) Scoop and run

Usage is 10x worse if said with air quotes.

Instead I prefer terms like primary survey, secondary survey, focused history and physical exam, rapid transport, high priority transport, low priority transport, and interventions.
