Holy shit...He only has two posts, took the time to get involved, and Really? The only thing the next page of posters could think to comment on is his caps lock and formatting?
C'mon folk. Some of us have done way more foolish things, I do them on a regular basis, perhaps we could show a new poster the courtesy of at least commenting on his content at the same time as bitching about his presentation??
Capt Stern, a few things, as I'm going to assume you might be new to forums. First and foremost, welcome to the City!! Thanks for taking the time to participate.
Presentation sucked..But that's not terminal, as I think your post content was really good! All caps is bad form. We're strong believers here, many of us anyway, that the way you present your ideas in text tells much about your intelligence and personality. Spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and paragraphs go a long way towards making your post easier to read and respond to. Also any 'lingo' that may be specific to your location, cert levels/radio codes, etc should be defined when used so that others are not confused by them. Not sniping brother, just trying to give you a heads up.
I absolutely agree that much more information was necessary, including your ideas on confirming that this was actually a CVA, is necessary before being able to determine whether or not fluid was appropriate. Though it's not uncommon here for folks to create a 'what if' scenario off of an actual call to help them ask a specidic question.
I found a lot of food for thought in your post, I'm grateful you took the time to create and it and had the courage to post it. I'm also confident given the information you need, if you haven't been discouraged by your first time out, that your presentation will be much different in the future.
And last, and possibly least, if most or all of that information came out of your head as opposed to being Googled, as I have a feeling it did, I have much to learn from you...I hope you'll stick around.
Have a great day all...
