Been there, done that....twice. I feel for you. So, I'm with Chimpie, what happened?
ROFL BossyCow...i totally should of done that....yeap resp distress from ammonia inhalant. I was taking vitals on a pt when the medic popped one and I started having problems breathing....5 days in the hospital and a day and a half in ICU.....icu nurses are GRUMPY!!!! So hopefully i will be going back to work soon. I'm getting sick and tired of being stuck at home!
Ha, my teacher was shocked by a defibrillator by her paramedic clinical student who was trying to save a patient and my teacher went into cardiac arrest. The student fainted and her partner was left with two patients. She made it, however the patient wasn't as lucky.
When I threw out my back at work, my partner had to drive us to the hospital. I could sorta walk, so when we got into the ED and I started to fill out the pt. admittance sheet, they looked around and asked us where our patient was. I sheepishly raised my hand and all they could do was laugh. Everyone was really great, and my coworkers had a field day messing with me because I could barely move. :blush:
