So here is the final decision for you to make and the real reason why I started this tale. This is a short post so have a quick read and let me know your thoughts.
The crew have arrived on scene to back me up. With this case, since I have been involved from the start and had medicated Jim, I thought it only right and proper to accompany him to the hospital, so one of the crew from the vehicle drove my car and I attended and travelled in the back of the ambulance with Jim up to the hospital.
I had Jim lying on the stretcher and had him attached to the monitor again. Just as I had attached the leads, Jim suddenly said
“Oooh Mark, I really dont feel very well”
As I look at him, I quickly throw a glance at the monitor which now shows this :
He remains conscious for now, but becomes pallid and diaphoretic within seconds.
Now, quick.. How do you treat this patient?
You need to open the ECG in full screen so you can see the full length of the strip to really see what is going on.
