    Stethoscopes - Suggestions and opinions please.

    My first stethoscope was a Littman Classic II which I used as a PCP and into the ACP program. Then I upgraded to the Cardiology III which I used for 11 years until it recently grew legs. I keep tight control of my kit so am rather bothered that it went missing. (Oh and shortly after I got the...

    I was in Cat Lake that day, on a MEDEVAC aircraft, getting out some of the elders with complex health issues (none of which were helped by he smoke they were inhaling). Two hercs were flying back and forth to Greenstone (Geraldton) with loads of evacuees. Incredible well organized, they were...

    Cadets and the C7, and other rifles. Let me end the discussion once and for all

    In my first years in Army Cadets, we used to have a couple of Range EX a year firing the FNC1. Even carried the FN around in the bush on FTX. Looks like those days are long gone.

    A&W Papa Burgers: The choice of Griffon pilots everywhere

    About 6 years ago we were on our way back to Thunder Bay from a cancelled medevac north of Kenora I believe. While our pilots went for fuel in Dryden, they dropped us (the 2 medics) in the vacant lot next to the Dryden Tim Hortons to pick up coffee and donuts for the ride home. I guess it was...
