Dispatched for a female "not breathing right"; roll up on scene to find ourselves a full blown STEMI.
First call yesterday: 5 vehicle MVC with entrapment and 3 trauma alerts, 2 of which were peds; their parent ended up having a T-injury and a dissecting aorta.
First call today: homeless 26 year old IV drug user with chest pain, curiously on the same exact spot where he has abrasions to his ribs from falling down drunk 2 days ago.
Most recent call today: menstrual cycle. Literally just on her period. No cramps, no heavy flow. Times 4 hours. Was in the shower "freshening up" when we arrived. When we took her to triage, she suddenly began to act like she was passing out. Report still given to triage nurse, who proceeded to bang her head on her desk twice.
