Yeah man! I'm gonna watch this show and make SOOOOO many recommendations on how to change our protocols...!That is true, I mean how many of us run into a burning building for fun and a cool story? HAHAHA This show is going to be awesome, I cant wait to learn from trauma!!! LOL!!
well duh! He had to palp it. You think it's hard trying to get a BP when in the back of a noisy truck? Try getting it when you're thumping on the guy's chest! And I bet the 60 was partially due to him sitting on the guy's chest. It's just like a phamaceutical vasoconstrictor that works instantly right?There was a show on NBC about police, fire, and EMS (can't remember the name). There was a scene with a crew rolling in a patient, apparently in full arrest, riding the stretch doing compressions, calling out info, "60 palp."
That's some good CPR!
What is a normal dose for morphine?I just saw an commercial for Mercy, and I actually have to admit not only was it semi realistic, I actually laughed.
I can't find the youtube, but the scene is 2 nurses talking while Nurse A is administering morphine, and Nurse B is watching. The pt suddenly goes unresponsive, and Nurse B shakes him and asks how much morphine Nurse A gave. She replies "100mg". The Nurse B tells the Nurse A to bag him, runs, gets the narcan, slams it, and the pt sits up and pukes all over the Nurse A, who gave him the OD.
It all happened rather quick, and I'm not sure one preload of Narcan would help with that much Morphine, but they got the puking bit right at least.
What is a normal dose for morphine?
And yeah, the line was something like "Are you trying to put out a T-REX!!!???"
