a 48yo with a panic attack. No history, no specific complaints besides the classic hyperventilation symptoms and sats of 100%. However the EKG reveals a large STEMI (inferior, posterior, anterior and lateral) with hypotension. We stabilized him with fluids and loaded him with all the pre-PCI meds and called in the FD to assist with evacuation. So far we have a laughing and joking chap with no chest pain, no nausea, good skin condition. Just a bit out of breath. A few minutes later he goes into Vfib. and stays there for a good ten minutes before returning to life.

Though not as sexy as a shooting or a STEMI, the first pt of the day was strep throat.

A "chest pain" call that turned out to be 10 mins of ear pain prior to calling 911. After reading WebMD the pt then had ear pain that radiated to her chest. A whole lot different then chest pain that radiates to the jaw/ear

Sounds like you got the pedi cloud too.
Every shift I get at least 2 pedi patients. I've already had more pedi patients in 400 hours of medic internship than I have working for over 3 years as an EMT.

I transported myself and my partner to the hospital for breakfast. And that was it.

Acute CHFer tacking away at about 176 due to his cocaine use. Went from having trouble breathing when we showed up, to being almost dead within a minute.

I think that was my first call last night. Idk.
