This is going to be a duplicated post since I will also be posting more or less the same thing on Ridin' the Tailboard.
Ayden volunteered to be a patient in my Paramedic class on Monday. And by volunteer I mean he didn't put up too much of a fight when I woke him up and dragged him along.
This portion of class involves patients that you may actually see working as a Medic. Ayden was playing the part of a toddler-a part he handled well-that had ingested an undetermined amount of bleach. Students had to assess for and treat any life threatening conditions they may find.
Ayden did a fantastic job and stole the show, as he always does. Getting his blood pressure taken and letting the students hook a cardiac monitor up to him. He didn't care much for taking the stickers off, but he was a trooper through the whole thing.
