Californian, Lost in Texas
Lucky. I had a patient a while back who suffered an ultimately-fatal head injury at 60ish when he took his new sport bike out and wheelied to show off to his family. Saddest part was his full riding kit draped across his old bike. Would likely have turned a severe trauma into a "meh".Motorcycle rider down at ~80mph. Non injury.
Indeed. I love those.Diabetic seizure with a hx of brain cancer. BS was 497. Followed by 2 month old resp arrest, updated to CPR in progress, to find a perfect infant laughing and smiling at EMS on scene. The best call right there
I had a decent stroke last shift-25 minute onset, incontinence, aphasia, confusion and agitation with slight weakness to left leg and right arm. Pressure 230/100, glucose 104, atrial fibrillation. Initial NIH 14, transported to stroke center. We ended up transporting her later in the shift to an available ICU, thrombolytics reduced her NIH to 2 and she was only confused as to what had happened. Made me feel great.
