I just want to say thank you for doing what you do. I am an ER nurse and have the utmost respect for my ED techs. Where i work, ED techs play a HUGE roll! I can't thank you all enough for the IV starts and EKG completions before I even make it to the room. Thank you for running to the lab when the tube system is down. When I was a PCU nurse, during codes our techs would run the opposite direction. ED techs run into the room to start compressions and lines. Again, I can't thank you enough?
