Quote of the day:

This one comes to us from a respiratory therapy instructor in another state that has recently contacted me via E-Mail regarding my blog.

On flight medicine and the respiratory therapist's role in the flight crew: "Flights rock! Nothing assesses or validates your skills or importance (knowledge) than a site drop with trauma." Damn right! That almost gives me an adrenaline rush just thinking about it.

Yeah, I'll be on that chopper one day. Trust me. Let's see, I probably need a Bachelor's in Respiratory (most likely a Master's), NREMT-P, ACLS, PALS, NRP, ATLS, a minimum of 3 years in ICU, and probably 2 in the NICU. I can so do that.

That is all.
