A while ago I experienced something as a trainee that happens pretty seldom in a paramedic's career (so I was told at least): A cardiac arrest while we were present. it
does more often happen before you're there.
We were there, init
was chestpain that had made the woman call the emergency number. Wit
roglycerin and other assessments we got the EKG sent back to the hospit
al and thanks to a rapid response from the emergency physician, he did also get there before transport.
