    I mean, I do find issue with a patient outcome I find unfavorable. Absolutely. Is every call horrible and awful and terrible? Definitely not. I still have fun on shift, love my job, want to be there and learn a lot. I don't know a lot about a lot and those gaps cause a lot of confusion...

    Issues=head case? Ah yes, because I wish to help people with real effect. Horrible. Crazy. Absolutely unbelievable that I wish things could have been different and that I could do better. Insane.

    Well, if it's about bans, I think it would be easier to get rid of one person and not two. Headcase. I disagree. Stressed about a lot most of the time? You bet. I can either give up and accept that or keep trying to be better. If I give up and walk away, I is really that easy, then I...

    It's not every arrest, I am okay with the old dude DOA we worked. Cause I don't think we should have when he was so old, unknown down time, possible head trauma, he was cold, unwitnessed etc etc I was just worried I screwed stuff up, but it looks like that's not really on me about the blood...

    I just got hopeful after he got into a shock able rhythm and things SEEMED to be going okay at first. Witnessed arrest, we're right here, got the LUCAS on pretty quick etc etc and then it's like Oh yeah all that **** totally didn't mattered. It probably would have been easier on the wife if...

    I mean, there was really no difference in him dying at home vs us being there except a big bill and wasted expectations. I was in the back with the medic and a few times I asked if we were going to use bicarb. He never did, I honestly don't know enough to know when it's not indicated. I just...

    I just feel like we should have some something, because when nothing happened despite our best efforts, it's like you really did nothing at all. The outcome wasn't better at all. And we were literally right there.

    I mean, how can you not because while he wasn't in any way fine when you got there and then he went into respiratory distress and then arrest and then cardiac arrest. I did not contribute enough to have a decent outcome and accidentally said something bad to the wife. She was calling the...

    After the call, the advanced walks up to the ball of the truck. It's pretty clean and organized as I've been cleaning it for 20 minutes. Scrubbing every speck of blood off the floor and sides, it wasn't a LOT but the guy was on thinners. I picked up all the trash and restocked what I could...

    We ran a full code, respiratory distress, coded on the way to the truck. Guy couldn't even tripod he was so exhausted. PEA, compressions, shocks , adenosine, etc etc tubing, the whole 9 yards and some like v fib or something and then he really tanked and we got to the hospital and they worked...

    The patient is a little *****. That's what. I dunno why people take out their bad attitudes on us. Why do we get called out of we're going to be the bad guys by the ones who called. We didn't hurt you. >:[

    Finished call #8 Didn't see it so much in the dark, but once we loaded the guy into the box, holy crap he was yellow. Jaundice and all. Edema, especially in the legs. He was seeping yellow. Diabetic neuropathy, hyperglycemic. His eyes... like the most yellow I've ever seen. Like neon...

    Well, I was quite the bane of existence to a floppy disc measured in kb, I'll have you know. Any one that found its way into my hands has its door ripped off.

    The lady who was family, Just pleading with us for us to do what we can. Asking if we can shock him back or do mouth to mouth. :( She asked the medic if he was really gone and it's policy for DOA without obvious signs of death to be called by a sup. Our medic was saying that it didn't look...
