emt92339: Yeah, but in the real world you know it does not happen that way. The BLS providers always get all of the blame and none of the credit, especially if they are volunteers

Which is damn sad, because the Volunteers get more respect in my mind than many of the paid guys. They don't have to go out and learn what they do, and then do what they do in their spare time, and they do it anyway.

The worst thing though, is the media. There could be one nurse standing in the crowd, and three EMTs, a Medic, and a Respiratory Therapist resuscitating this guy, and the nurse will STILL get the credit.
