Probably just using “technology” instead of developing real skills…

Sounds like they didn’t use any “technology” at all. Can’t imagine how this happens when you put the monitor on for more than five seconds to observe asystole.

BLS here can and does cancel ALS for obvious death. Eventually the odds are an EMT crew will get this wrong. But medics?

Come on. Bring the monitor in and just put a four lead on.

I’m betting they spent a few minutes googling Death, then called it. Technology.

Probably would have been more effective than whatever happened.
