So after working stand by at an event this weekend, I got my first cardiac arrest. It came out of no where, and turned to be a very stressful call. I understand why now in EMT class they stress CPR so much, but I'm noticing that a lot of students don't take it seriously. Everyone has a mentality that it's super easy, and anyone can do CPR; which is correct, If the patient is a half bodied plastic manican. But when you've got 200 people staring at you looking at YOU for the answer, the scenario becomes a little different. When you look down and see this human being lifeless on the ground in a very public place, with all eyes on you, suddenly everything changes. Luckily for me I was able to brush off all the other stuff and be able to get right to work, but I know a few people who work in EMS who would freeze, and become too distracted by the emotional aspect. Not really a question, but just sharing some thoughts about this.
