I couldn't find the thread about crazy calls so I'll post this here. I got a call at 7am this morning for an assault and when I got there had to declare death for the victim and...It was a dog. Not really something we were trained for.

That's why I'm glad we have Lucas on all our ambos, and getting them on (including mine) Engines...

The string of words the PICU nurse threw my way today....That was a whole heap of I don't know the words coming out of your mouth.

Super important personal perk to the new job for me? Cable provider has SNLA, meaning I have access to my beloved Dodgers. Awesome.

Fake it till you make it.

Or until you Google it. Same thing.

Did something change in the site formatting? The "New Posts" button on the bottom seems to have disappeared...

Oops, that was me. Sorry. I’ll add it back tonight.

I saw that many hundreds of sites were being sued for massive amounts of money for not complying with ADA laws in California and added a Accessibility link at the bottom. It looks like I removed the new posts button. Will fix!

Oh I did. Still in the midst of reading up on it. Fortunately the vent settings and meds were all pretty standard.

My cynical side tells me that was the idea...
Not in this case, this was one of the most helpful sending staff I've had. NMDA receptor encephalitis caused by a teratoma. Meds adjusted before/as we got there for neurostorms. Transfer for plasmapheresis. The only paramedic I work with I've mentioned this to who was familiar with any of that is an MS3. I only knew enough to have a vague sense of what was going on.

Wild...would have thought a hospital with a PICU managing a patient like that would have the capability for in house plasmapheresis....
