    I figure that's probably how my first day back will start.

    Refractory VF/Pulseless VT/Pulsatile VT is the most voted for.

    I took my niece down to the Caribbean sea and taught her how to swim first thing today, does that count?

    Tomorrow I'll probably go for a dive...once I get over the hangover I'm planning to buy tonight.

    So you're saying last call is going to be more important than first call tonight?

    Mine today was a fall w/ a broken arm. Got yelled at by the ED nurse for giving Dilaudid... Took great pleasure in telling her that my treatment modalities take precedence over her desires.

    The nurse doesn't believe in medicating fractures?

    Yea since opiates automatically make you gorked no matter what.

    I've been off the box for 8 months but my first call on an ambulance was third unit into a single car rollover vs telephone pole and electrical box. We took the first patient that was extricated. Thank goodness my TO spoke Spanish.

    First call today was a transport from a psych facility to the hospital to get the patient medically cleared because she had COPD (she had no complaint at all).

    I don't remember my first call as an EMT anymore. If I really want to know I could just look in my file (types of calls you get during field training time are all documented).
