Getting Started.... for the old!

An "ANYTHING GOES" forum for discussing the interests, issues and concerns of the paramedical examiner community. Sharing ideas, knowledge, experiences and opinions is strongly encouraged.

However, we do ask that all participants respect the rights of others to communicate in whatever manner they wish, positive or negative, and TRY to behave respectfully toward one another when conflicts in views or opinions arise.

Our goal is to create an environment where examiners can speak openly and honestly without the restrictions of forced diplomacy or the constraints of having to observe over-bearing rules of political correctness.

Getting Started.... for the old!

Postby Old Medic Guy » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:37 pm


So I'm an old medic, like in my 50's old, and am looking for life after EMS. I'm hoping some of you will help with advice on how to get started doing this up here in Massachusetts. And what equipment I may need to obtain beyond a bp cuff and stethoscope.

I've read some of the board, did some searches, and other then courses to get "certified" and companies that may or may not hire you. I obviously have the skills like taking a BP and such.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

I was a Paramedic for 25 years, this is my older age job now. You need a centrifuge, portable EKG machine, fax or scanner, lots of paper. Scale, tape measure. these are the basics.
