Cardiac Arrest. The patients family states they were talking to the patient from the other room when they believe the patient collapsed and went unresponsive. Family immediately dialed 911 and pre instructions with CPR were given to the family. Prior to the cardiac arrest, the patient had been complaining to the family of “body aches” and hot flashes. The patient was initially noticed to be very diaphoretic. The family further states the patient had been experiencing nausea and vomiting all night. The patient is not a dialysis patient and has no history of hepatic failure. Upon SDEMS arrival SDEMS confirmed the patient was pulseless and immediately assumed CPR. The patient did not have a DNR. While CPR was being performed, SDEMS enlisted the assistance of family members to begin BVM ventilations with guided assistance from SDEMS EMTs. SDEMS 1805 prepared the KING LTD for placement. KING LTD Size 4 placement was not successful. (reference afore for additional and times). Could not ventilate and no breath sounds were present on ventilations. Removed airway and immediately attempted LMA Size 4 with success. (reference afore for additional and times)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
