Letter from Mr. Kilo Re: Medical Training - A Course Review by J.N.

Jim:
OK, just my $.02 on the wilderness EMT article...

The thing I see that's missing from this article, and many like it is the focus on practice. I've been doing EMS long enough; and run enough calls to know that any EMS certification is a LICENSE TO PRACTICE medicine. People who get the training and don't use it might be kidding themselves. "The body does well what it does often" -- I can't remember who said that, but it's true.

Most newly-minted EMTs that I work with aren't worth squat in the field. Not until they have survived their first 100 calls or so. Maybe it is like the difference between taking a class on technical writing versus doing it for a living. Best Regards, - Mr. Kilo in the Northwest
