    Wondering what folks think about these things considering the resurgence in attention to venous return/MSFP in volume responsive patient's. If PLR is effective in determining volume responsiveness, could there be a role in MASTs for resuscitation still?

    We talked about this last night during paramedic recert. PASG (MAST) is gone, and I don't think it's ever coming back.

    Can someone explain the acronyms in this thread to me? I remember "MAST"s... vaguely.
    There was a cartoon in the 80's known as "M.A.S.K.", which was also cool for its time.

    We had a set under the bench seat of our medic units for the longest time and we checked they were sitting there on our dailys. Ahh, dusty memories.

    I actually applied a PASG once when I was a medic (over a decade ago), but we used it to stabilize a suspected pelvic fracture. I do not see these coming back at all for any reason.

    As of 3ish years ago, they were mandated by state law to still be on EMS rigs where I worked.

    Are these rigs DeLoreans? Because it sounds like some time traveling is going on.

    Mean systemic filling pressure (mean circulatory filling pressure)...it drives venous return.

    I found one reference that called it "systolic", or so I thought. Maybe I just bagged it!

    Nothing special happened when we got them up to 88... other than a lecture from the boss about safe driving practices.
