Probably not right to refer to a ejection as - PEFYC - Pre-Extricated For Your Convenience ...

I'm shocked and appalled at reading this.

Next thing you'll tell me is that Tachylordia is no longer an acceptable diagnosis: "Lordy,lordy,lordy,lordy..."

I never knew the term for it. Although, I have seen it. I believe it's brought on by the same causes as HP; Hispanic Panic.

When I worked in Los Angeles, we referred to ambulatory pts on scene that had sudden neck and back pain upon arrival of EMS as LHP 2.2. As in "Larry H. Parker got me 2.2 million dollars".

That reminded me of when I used to do morgue transfers

lol, people actually use the term "urban outdoorsmen" here.

One I heard today on a code was "TMB" or "Too many birthdays".

HIBGIA (had it before, got it again) - Used this one, not the abbriviation but the words in a hospital report!

Stroke patients are NOT "Charlie Carrots." Nor are rescuers to use CCFCCP(Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs) to describe their mental state. This could be used for more than just stroke pts!
