This is where you can find out just who is involved and also writing on here…
Jason Boitnott (@madmedic809)-This is our resident Paramedic/Nurse who even though he works in the ICU he still thinks he is on the street. He apparently got separated from his partner one day in the ED trying to find the EMS room and ended up in Nursing School. Jason currently works in an ICU (yup bringing up stairs care downstairs and then out the back door to the truck) in Mississippi. He does not have any conflicts of interest to declare, although never get into an argument with him about BBQ.
Branden Miesemer (@bmiesemer)-Branden started out as a mass communications major in college before inadvertently tripping and falling head first into the swirling vortex of paramedicine. He long ago accepted his fate and now serves full time as a HEMS paramedic in Nebraska, as well as being heavily involved in education. When he’s not working or engaged in various medical nerdy, he enjoys driving too fast and playing his music too loudly.
Rebekah Spratt (@medibrat)-Is an advanced care paramedic from North Central Ontario who has been bouncing around the back of an ambulance and dodging… Meese? Mooses? Meeses???? for about 17 years now. We have no idea how she ended up a paramedic but what we do know is she knits and is addicted to maple syrup. Rebekah is also currently working on her UK registration so she can swim the pond and play with our UK friends.
Jason Bowman (@texprehospital)-Is a 10 year recovering Firefighter/Paramedic currently stumbling his way through medical school at Texas A&M. Before medical school Jason spearheaded the Keller Fire/Rescue ultrasound program which was one of the most aggressive EMS ultrasound programs in the world. He is a bonafide ultrasound nerd and will ultrasound veins for IV’s, heads for strokes, hearts for cardiac arrests and just about anything else that will sit still long enough to let him put gel on it. Besides ultrasound he enjoys long walks on the beach and bringing things back to life in his mad scientist resuscitation laboratory.
Cindy Pratt (@cindyrpratt)-Cindy fell to the dark side 12 years ago while volunteering for a small fire department in her home town in Alaska. Years later she was run over by a reindeer and woke up in paramedic school. While in school she got a taste for critical care and she liked it! Sometime later, she was drugged, blindfolded, thrown into an airplane, and woke up wearing a Nomex onesie. BOOM! She was a flight paramedic in Alaska, with a bunch of cool toys and logistical nightmares. She flies around in King Air 200’s, Lear 35’s, and occasionally an A-Star. Cindy can also be found in warmer weather in her off time
