Interesting term thus far.
The actual hour by hour plan hasn’t really been stuck to so far, but that’s only to be expected I guess. However, my two pieces of coursework submitted so far this year have received a 70 and a 75 which I’m very happy with…achieving a c.64/5 this year is seeming more and more likely!
Work is fun. I had a shift last week where a young woman was in a mosh pit and fainted, she had been standing among a lot of (weed) smokers which was probably the reason for spO2 of 88. I told the trainee paramedic with me this girl’s sats, and she (the trainee para) screamed them back at me with a worried face. You do not do this. Cue aggravated patient and worried 20 questions from patient’s drunk friends. Patient’s spO2 returned to normal within 5 minutes.
A couple of weeks ago I was working on a Friday and then a Saturday. On the Friday I had a guy who drank a whole bottle of cognac and his spO2 dropped to 74, very stupid thing to do, so I had to call an ambulance out, and that was fine. Also, side point, got the oxygen out, to be face with this:
The following night, I was at a different venue and was called out to a homeless man outside the front, I got to him and he said ‘I have chest pain and had a heart attack in January’, whether this was the case or he wanted a bed on a cold November night, who am I to say… 😉 Whatever though, I had to call an ambulance as he had the magic chest pain symptoms, the ambulance arrived and it was the same paramedics…I really hope there isn’t a 999 blacklist!
Choir’s Christmas concert is this week, and is only minorly stressful – should be fantastic!
Otherwise, I’ve received my two (surprisingly very) good references for my MSc, just need to write my personal statement now.
So, a good term I think.
