The TSA is not the expert in toxicology- the American College of Medical Toxicology is and they say this is nonsense- can only be exposed if weaponized- something not being done to street drugs

And “brushing it off a uniform” or being in the same room doesn’t count

But only if it’s weaponized- an expensive and dangerous process- it could be 10 tons of fentanyl powder- it’s not going to cause anyone any harm unless they intentionally ingest it somehow

Ok-yes I know the difference btwn weaponized fentanyl and street drugs You are confusing the issues because CBP is not dealing with weaponized fentanyl- this is the nonsense “fentanyl is a deadly boogeyman” narrative that LE agencies are using to gain public sympathy and funding

Except that you can’t overdose from incidental contact with fentanyl- such as touching it or even if someone “throws a cloud of it into the air” or “awesolizes it” Why? Because science- that is why

“Presumed cardiac arrhythmia” is the usual diagnosis of choice for cardiac arrests that come to the ED without a clear cut cause for the arrest

I see these complaints, for the most part, coming from countries that are a fraction of the size and population of the US- To state the obvious this creates challenges that smaller countries can’t really fathom

Pediatricians are also shooting themselves in the foot w/ hospitalist “fellowships” as well- I too worry that we are creating these fellowships and people are doing them for the wrong reason- because they feel like they have to instead of actually wanting/needing more training

It’s very dependent state by state but in a lot of states you can take EMT classes and get certified at 16 years old- can’t be a primary EMT responsible for patient care until you are 18

Volunteering with an ambulance company (initially as an “attendant” then as an EMT) starting the summer after my junior year of high school introduced me to medicine and completely changed my career outlook- before that I wanted to work in a level 4 lab with Ebola- now- nope!

A billionaire investor has bankrupted Hahnemann Hospital in Philly & is refusing to release govt funding for 589 resident physicians. Please back up us, the ACGME, & CMS -we can’t continue our training unless our funding is released. RT. make this a national issue!
