Managing Fatigue in EMS
Fatigue is a fact of life in modern society.  Fatigue in EMS is constant and, sadly, all too accepted by both employers and employees.  I taught a class recently and easily half of the soon-to-be instructors (who had to try and retain a lot of new information) survived the class on an endless stream of coffee and energy drinks.

'Contaminated air' on planes linked to health problems
Conclusion These findings indicate that on rare occasions, pilots have not been able to perform as usual due to poor air quality in the cabin. Also poor air quality has been linked to health problems in the long term. However, there are some limitations of the study that need to be considered: The authors claim they have demonstrated a cause-and-effect relationship based on certain criteria. But with the exception of the acute air toxicity incident investigation reports in the second study, these types of study cannot prove causality. While it is likely that exposure to chemicals is toxic, this study did not link many o...
