Re: Relief Squad

Sounds neat on paper, but in practice, it will likely be akin to ERT's. Rarely ever seen due to lack of players that want to do it. If an evac was called, there should be at least two Command staff, or someone who stole the spare ID and used it to make another Command-tier ID to give to a partner so...

Re: Recapitation Defibrillation

I can see the arguments on both sides so I'm posting my stance as a despicable neutral on this one. I'll tell your wife you said... hello. On the topic of 'don't make the surgery too hard,' it shouldn't exactly be easy mode, but don't even the most complex surgical steps take ~10 seconds to complet...

Re: Recapitation Defibrillation

I'm kinda with Curt on this one. I'm not against recapitation per se but there is a very good reason getting a little bit too much off the top makes you Super Dead. There are a lot of Very Important Bits in your neck that you kinda need to Not Lose in order to remain Not Dead. Your spinal column, n...

Re: Recapitation Defibrillation

Time to make everyone angry, and I really am sorry. Despite what is believed, right now, the surgical steps for re-attaching a head are, in fact, a bandaid and some stitches. Your PR does not fix the issue that existed, in my mind. I like Frankensteining people, because it's MAD SCIENCE, but there ...

Re: Recapitation Defibrillation

+1 To pull something like this off, you need: - To bring a patient's damage below 200, which is going to be pretty difficult once the head is reattached, since that'll likely add another 30 damage at the minimum. Might not seem like a lot, but since trauma kits only heal 3 damage and can only be use...

Re: Defibrillator Complexity

I mean... The current ones can't be named AED's, because they aren't AED's. AED's shock on their own. Anyone can use it. If you ever took a course to get first-aid/cpr certified, you know how to use one. If you didn't, that's fine, you don't need any training to use it. They loudly, clearly tell you...

Re: Defibrillator Complexity

Side note: After last staff meeting, general opinion was that Defibrillators, as they stand now, are not first-aid level gear. They aren't equipment that everyone can slap on a chest and push a button. If someone wants to do some coding/spriting for some sort of AED/make some sort of mechanical dif...

Re: First Aid Stations and you: or how i learned to stop worrying and love cargo

The reason I liked the aid stations wasn't because "its a secluded and private area". Rather, because "I don't have to leave a patient on the floor and stabilize if they aren't safe for transit to Medbay."

Re: Defibrillator Complexity

The burn from a failed defib could potentially push someone over the limit of what med can heal on a corpse and be able to successfully defib, for one That sounds like an IC issue, and not that big of a deal. If someone has so much damage that the defb burn kills them again, medical can still poten...

Re: Defibrillator Complexity

If the defib won't help during the situation, nothing will happen anyway since, well... The defib won't function, and nothing really changes. The defibs are too large for someone to really keep onhand without being annoying to store, non-medical crew are unlikely to deal with that and keep them.
