We apologize for the offensive nature of our "No More Hesitation" products. These products have been taken offline due to the opinions expressed by so many, including members of the law enforcement community.
Following up on a previous conversation (start here & you should have no problem following the discussion); evidently more than a few members of the law enforcement community agree that using pregnant women, children and old men as targets is inappropriate, which in turn convinced the company to reconsider its decision -
I had a similar situation but I had a pulse ox. Pt initially cyanotic, pulse ox low 80s (can't remember the exact number). Put her on an NRB, got her to the hospital. Nurse in the ER said the pt didn't look bad, and since her pulse ox was 100% at that time took her off the o2. I quickly asked her to sign for the pt. 2 minutes later, I hear a panicky voice yelling, "I need respiratory!" I walk back in, see the nurse still holding the NRB. Pt was back to respiratory distress and low o2 sats. I take the NRB and place it back on the pt. Problem solved!Working on a BLS truck today, no pulse ox. Took a patient to the ER who was sweaty, breathing 40 times per minute shallow with bilateral lower rails and when we found her initially, have her some o2 and sat her up, within 5 minutes she was breathing better. Nurse at the er tells me that the patient wasnt having sob because she looks fine now, and tells me that I can't know if she's short of breath without a pulse ox... Grrrr...
