Oh, there you are!

10 November 2011

This is a 4 shift block.

With pressure of the blog meeting, the dental work, mother-in-law coming and a wedding to attend I didn't even post in draft any of the work from the last block.
I don't think there was anything really spectacular in it just run of the mill bread and butter stuff that is a normal shifts work for any Paramedic.

93F - SOB/Chest pain on walking on the flat.
43M - Hospital to Hospital transfer.
69M - Who's BP is normal now after he's taken his BP meds.
61F - Hx of atrial tachycardia and a 2/24 long episode today.

63M - IP unable to walk.
 35M - Vomiting.
