SCA & Opioid Overdose, Pulmonary Embolism on EMS 1

Over at EMS 1 I have two clinical articles up.

In How To Treat Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Opioid Overdose I wrote about how to tell the difference between ineffective breathing from sudden cardiac arrest versus opioid overdose and how the management is different.

In 4 Things EMS Providers Need To Know About Pulmonary Embolism I wrote about how to identify PEs from other causes of respiratory distress and shock. While writing this I learned that most deaths from PEs were from obstructive shock, not respiratory failure.

Check them out and let me know what you think.
