WTF EMS Call of the Day: dispatched for a 70 yo female w/ C/C of a nose bleed and a knife wound. And no, she wasn’t mugged and didn’t hurt herself. Nana got into a knife fight in the nursing home.
Had a 4 year old pt today with a sustained heart rate of 230, c/o chest pain, lethargic and going in and out of consciousness. Medic pushed 2.1 adenosine and HR dropped back down to 119, and all pt’s symptoms subsided
