Today I am interviewing Kelly Grayson, paramedic, instructor, blogger, podcaster and author. His books in the Life Death and Everything in-between have been entertaining and educating for over 10 years. His co-authoring of Success for the critical care paramedic has helped countless paramedics in their studies.
About the author
Steven Kelly Grayson is a critical care paramedic and EMS educator in southwest Louisiana. He is the father of an enchanting thirteen-year-old daughter, and enjoys hunting, shooting and outdoor activities. He has five books currently available and also does a bit of podcasting with the Inside EMS show
By day, he is a mild-mannered author and EMS educator, but by night, dressed in his superhero costume of Day-Glo traffic vest and multi-pocketed EMS pants, he prowls the dark recesses of the city in search of little old ladies who have fallen and can’t get up.
About the books
Steven “Kelly” Grayson has seen the best of us at our worst. When hearts stop working, when blood alcohol levels exceed limits we shouldn’t contemplate, when bodies are extricated from car wrecks, he’s been there to pick up the pieces, save our lives, and watch us slip away. En Route is an unflinching look at the heart of a paramedic and the profession that shaped him. Grayson’s touching stories of life and death and the hilarious ones of times in between are here to give us an insight of what happens after we call 911, the ambulance doors close, or even what happens inside the ER when the nurse shows the family to the waiting room.
SUCCESS! FOR THE CRITICAL CARE PARAMEDIC, is the book to help paramedics obtain their Critical Care Paramedic certification. . Blending a comprehensive collection of practice exam questions with helpful test-taking tips and student hints, all items reference the DoT’s objectives. As you build confidence by digging into this rich content review, you’ll find that the Brady/Prentice Hall Health test preparation system is a blueprint for success.
