Emergency Room nurse And ambulance Nurse

Summary

2008 I started my nursing studies at the university of Umeå. I started my career as an emergency room nurse straight from the university. At the ER I gained my experience in critical emergency care and I found it interesting and developing. Later on I took the next step to work at the ambulance in Stockholm. Working in the ambulance has been a great challenge for me, and it has made me a better critical and emergency care personal. I have also travelled to south africa and volunteered as a paramedic, to gain more experience in trauma and critical care. But now I feel like I need to take the next step, so that´s why I quit my job at the ambulance to pursuit my next dream, which is to work abroad in hot zones and catastrophic areas.

Paramedic in South Africa

Metro Emergency medical services

I came to a point where I wanted to gain more experience in prehospital trauma life support, and because south africa is one of the contries that has most traumas, I travelled to South africa, cape town to volunteer as a paramedic/nurse at the first responder car. I was in Cape town for six weeks and volunteered for several private EMS companies, but I spend most of my time with the Metro government Medical Emergency Transport and Rescue team.

Ambulance nurse

AISAB AB 

As a nurse in the ambulance, I deal with a range of situations, from minor wounds to serious injuries caused by a major road or rail accident. My job is to provide immediate care or treatment in any circumstances.

When responding to a call, I have to check patient's condition and decide what action to take from there, such as:

  • making quick decisions about moving the patient
  • using advanced life support techniques, such as electric shocks, to resuscitate patients
  • carrying out surgical procedures, such as inserting a breathing tube
  • providing drug and fluid therapy
  • giving medicines and injections
  • putting on dressings for wounds and supports for broken bones.
  • leading the trauma care on scene on minor and major accidents/situations

Emergency room (ER) nurse

Danderyds hospital emergency room 

Emergency rooms are often the first line of defense for accidents, allergic reactions, and any number of urgent medical care. As a ER nurse my task was to assist doctors and work with emergency medical technicians in helping people in pain and possibly life-threatening trauma. I also needed to quickly assess the needs of each patient, prioritize care based on its critical nature, and work to stabilize a patient, treat the problem, discharge the patient after the emergency is over or make arrangements for a longer hospital stay.
