The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 2nd of March 2016
Busy day at work today, sometimes it sucks getting up in the middle of the night to go on calls and sometimes the calls just suck, but most of the time it’s awesome and the best job in the world. I was reminded my last shift why I have the best job in the world. It’s nice to have reminders that refocus your perspective. Sometimes you find yourself complaining about stupid things, stuff that doesn’t matter, then you get that refocus and you realize how ridiculous your complaining sounds.
While we do both fire suppression and Emergency Medical Services, EMS is by far the most frequent call type that we see. Most of the time the calls are run of the mill, no one’s gonna die. On my last shift we were dispatched with a another fire dept and an Advanced life support transport unit for a cardiac arrest. The location was out in the middle of nowhere, on a well used trail along the Potomac river. There is a high volume of traffic on the trail especially on weekends and during the summer with people running, walking and riding bikes.
The dispatchers advised us that the patient was in cardiac arrest (heart was not operating) and was lying on the trail with bystanders doing CPR. The first fire dept unit to arrive took over chest compression’s and attached their AED or Automated External Defibrillator. They were able to shock the Patient and continued CPR. (Note: the AED only shocks certain heart Rhythms, If it says “no shock advised” there’s nothing wrong with it, the patient just isn’t in a Shockable Rhythm)
I arrived and started ALS interventions while the first responders and bystanders continued CPR. When the transport unit arrived we were able to successfully get ROSC or return of spontaneous circulation, that simply means the heart had started again. We transported the pt to the closest hospital alive and with promising signs. Later that day I was contacted and told that the patient was doing well and expected to make a full recovery.
There’s a couple of points to take away here. First, there is no better story of medical success, as when all the parts fall into place and everyone does their job. From the bystanders that witnessed the patient collapse and fall off his bike. They called 911 and started CPR and continued it until first responders arrived, this is significant and probably the most important part of the puzzle. If those bystanders hadn’t stopped what they were doing to help the rider he would be dead. There is no doubt in my mind. Those people are hero’s, not only did they care enough to call 911, they learned CPR before hand, hoping to never have to use it, but knowing that if they did they could potentially do something amazing for a complete stranger. If they had waited the 10 minutes it took for responders to arrive he would now be dead.
Next the dispatchers were able to process the information and successfully alert fire and EMS units. Without the dispatchers taking and relying the location and information, the responders would never find the emergency or wouldn’t be prepared for what they found.
The Fire dept first responders didn’t have specialized advanced life support equipment or training, but they didn’t need it. Their job was to get to the patient as quickly as possible, continue CPR and attempt defibrillation and they did it well. When we arrived we were able to continue basic care and add advance care to the mix. We transported the pt to the hospital and the emergency department staff continued to treat the patient allowing for positive definitive care.
If any of these pieces were missing from the puzzle, the outcome would have been different. But the most important part like I said, was the people who cared enough about another human being to give him another chance at life.
The amazing thing is the length of time that the rider was in cardiac arrest yet still able to survive without deficit. We’re talking about around 15 min of the heart not pumping blood through the body. Without immediate, uninterrupted CPR, brain death and total death would have occurred within minutes. (See how important hands only CPR is?)
Old school medical providers might tell you that CPR doesn’t work, or the percent of success is very low. This is because we did crap CPR 15 years ago. I am really amazed that anyone ever survived back then.
What’s the difference? understanding how the body works, changing protocols as needed, study and research and application of that knowledge. While a cardiac arrest save doesn’t happen everyday, it happens exponentially more than when I first started in emergency services. Back then if someone in cardiac arrest survived in was an anomaly. We did so many things wrong, compared to our current knowledge and understanding.
So What’s the point of this long ass post? There are so many points to take away that I’ll let you figure them out, but ill give summary highlights
-Learn CPR and apply the golden rule once you learn it. Make sure you learn to do it right.
-Sometimes we think we know the right way to do something, until we find that it’s been total crap.
-Study, research and knowledge can open our eyes to a better way to do things that can benefit everyone.
-Team work is key to any concept that’s bigger than just you. Not just a “BS” Lets be a happy team, but knowing what your role in the team is and executing it.
