Seems as if someone stuck their nose in where it might not belong, and was corrected. But has yet to apologize for the horrendous accusation made about our hardworking fire and ambulance service. Our medics and EMTs are thoroughly trained to handle emergency situations in a professional manner. While to the casual onlooker they may seem hard or uncaring, that is just part of the job. They HAVE to appear that way. You have no clue what goes home with them. What they have to relive and deal with on a daily basis. So, yes, please do a bit of research before jumping to non-educated conclusions about them. And for crying out loud, admit when you're wrong and apologize.

Was listening to this on the scanner last night when one of the medics responded over their department radio "they were bagging one".I am sorry,but I feel that remark was very much so uncalled for on a public broadcast radio.Is this standard procedure? I would hope not! This was a human being ,not some animal!I would hope if this is not normal; practice,this person is dealt with accordingly.I dont think a simple"dont say that again" is ample punishment! maybe a suspension for him would let him think if he really wants to be a medic should be in store!

Yes Bagging!

First of all you go as far as calling the scanner public radio and department radio. Well one thing you have correct is DEPARTMENT RADIO. Scanners are not made for the PUBLIC. They are there so Fire, EMS, and Police personnel may communicate important information to each other in the event of an emergency. Had you been an educated individual in one of these areas you would know and understand that “bagging a person” is where a Medic or other EMS qualified individual is assisting the patient in breathing by whatever means necessary. Again this information is to be communicated to other qualified emergency personnel, NOT the PUBLIC.
So my suggestion to you is, turn off the scanner. Again, the scanner is not public and should be utilized for emergency personnel only. Please find much better things to do than to question the experience and knowledge of our very educated Emergency Medical Responders.

I can assure you, as a paramedic (but not for SFD) That "bagging" means a Bag valve mask is being used on the patient. It simply means the person is being assisted in breathing or being totally breathed for. So, calm down and try not to punish anyone without due process. If you had simply googled it before your outburst, there would not have been one. : )

Bagging 101

I am fairly certain that bagging is a term used when placing a person on life support (ie a breathing machine). I seriously doubt that the paramedic was speaking of someone who had passed away and was being "placed in a body bag".
