Simple PVC, easy to move. Place plastic over, intubate using video scope. I’ve used it a few times, doesn’t really limit or cause issues. Once tube in, throw away plastic and good to go!
@wheelsee, thanks for sharing man. I can give two perspectives, EMS (as medical director) and from the ED (Dept. Chairman-but I work full time ;):
1. EMS: our county implemented department wide PPE on all calls weeks ago. With the high rate of asymptomatic shedders as well as atypical symptoms, we decided early to maximize PPE: N-95, gown, eye…[Read more]
Update from Idaho:
Been silent for a bit on the forum only because I’ve been up to my head in this shit. In the middle of a seven day stretch and buried with preparedness meetings and Incident Command stuff. I’ll try to keep it brief:
1. We’ve seen the same “curve” here as NY and other places, we’re early still and project this weekend wil…[Read more]
Cases spiking, at least with increased testing. Knew it was here. We’ve shut down operations at our heaviest hit hospital in Sun Valley:
Only the ER remains open, my group has been a…[Read more]
My AO is locking down. Moved our flight home to tomorrow, hopefully can still make it back. Not running from the virus…but back into the sick.…[Read more]

Begin, sorry…typing on a cell phone. Please excuse the typos.
In the spirit of the thread: Information/Intelligence…I’ll share updates from my AO and current experience as boots on the ground in the ER and preparations going into EMS (Ada County Medical Director):
1. NO documented COVID-19 cases in Idaho as of last night. Doesn’t mean it’s not there, just no positives.
2. CDC, State Dept of Healt…[Read more]
Big hospital meeting today, Covid was addressed, here are some points I gleaned:
1. Idaho, Wyoming and Montana have 0 confirmed cases, however we are surrounded by states that have declared states of emergency, take it FWIW.
2. NO DEATHS under the age of 10. Under the age of 20, <1%. However, mortality among positive tested individuals…[Read more]
Idaho has been fun, especially with the cases in Seattle. Costco is rationing toilet paper. I’ve been through tons of hurricanes, all the big Cat 5’s and never once was there a run on TP. Now beer and bread…don’t mess with Cajuns!
From a medical standpoint, Idaho has 0 confirmed cases. Our hospital has implemented triage protocols, PPE,…[Read more]

This is a GREAT post filled with some of the best takeaway information available!!! Thanks for sharing. I’ve shared the link with all of my Idaho guys. Why chance you’re life when it really matters??? All the greatest gear won’t mean shit if your go to war rifle fails out of the gait. Thanks again!!!

Greetings MVT forum crew!
As we start 2020, I have a unique opportunity to travel to Thailand to train the Karen “backpack” medics out of Myanmar. Just watch Rambo 4…it’s actually all about the situation in Myanmar and the Kar…[Read more]
I utilize a Vortex Razor HD scope. Have had it for years and it has held up on multiple field excursions. It also has a changeable eyepiece with mildot crosshairs. I utilize it for hunting and shooting matches, my wife utilizes it for birding and wildlife excursions (Yellowstone, Tetons, etc). In conjunction with the carbon fiber manfroto…[Read more]
Happy holidays!!! Stay safe out there!!!
I’ll throw what I’ve been running for the last few years out. As with anything, it’s whats worked for me after multiple evolutions:
1. Battle belt: shellback
2. Mag pouches: HSGI rifle/pistol x2
3. TQ: NAR hard case
4. IFAK: pull-fak on belt
5. Holster: custom kydex for Glock 19
6. PC: Warrior Assault Systems Recon
7. Plates: Shot stop…[Read more]
About to head into the OR to get my shoulder fixed. I won’t be able to do anything with arms..but plan on doing modified stuff as soon as I’m able. Thanks for doing this!
I decided to buy once, cry once and got the FLIR breach from JRH last year. It is the absolute BOMB.
I’ll give my experience and two cents for what it’s worth. My go to war rifle is a Colt 6960 and my wife’s a 6920. I run the Leupold Mark 6 1-6x with the 5.56 CMR reticle. Found some ammo that flies that reticle perfect, now I’m solid out to 600 yards consistently. My wife runs the vortex strike Eagle 1-8x. She’s solid out to 500 consisten…[Read more]
Can’t wait to get my pack in…but yeah…the Sasquatch videobomb wasn’t awesome!!! Props to whoever pulled that off!!!
