Hi was wondering if anyone new the basic EMS/paramedic managment for patients suffering with:

Superior Vena Cava Syndrome/obstruction

Hypercalcaemia?

Spinal cord compression?

Or if you have any of your own hints and tricks to best manage these patients?

Cheers
Kris

Hi was wondering if anyone new the basic EMS/paramedic managment for patients suffering with:

Superior Vena Cava Syndrome/obstruction: Treat for cardiac symptoms

Hypercalcaemia? See a doctor. (Hypercalcemia by the way)

Spinal cord compression? Board em.

Or if you have any of your own hints and tricks to best manage these patients? Follow Local Protocols

You got it right

Im an aussie!! thus the reason for my spelling.
Just trying to do a little research to see if you guys had any better protocols for the managment of some of these conditions
Thanks for the spelling lesson though.

I didn't know they spelled differently.

So, I googled it just now.. Still looks to be wrong. IME

you know not to be rude, but to the original poster...you asked this same exact question on another board and had it answered pretty completely by the doctors and paramedics who responded to you.

Not to be rude, but there is nothing wrong with getting multiple sources of information to answer a question. Also, it can be very informative to other members of the forum.
