This article is part of a special one-day EMS blogging event called the What If We’re Wrong a-Thon. Spearheaded by Brandon Oto over at EMS Basics, the WIWWAT is an exercise in self-reflection where EMS writers examine a topic on which that they’ve historically taken a strong stance, but from the opposite point-of-view. For more posts from around the EMS community as part of the What If We’re Wrong a-Thon, check out this page.

For my critical examination of those questions follow this link or click on Dr. Perry Cox’s face above.
