The family stated early on there was suspicion of low potassium. Though I didn't ride with ALS to hospital I saw everything that happened in the back of the rig beforehand. Truth is they were freaking out because that 30% chance that patient could crash was not factored in as if his symptoms were not enough evidence already that he was in serious trouble. ALS instead of starting CPR began working on removing him from the house. ALS who checked his pulse and whispered in my partners ear he is crashing. I presume so the family would not hear. They wanted to get him out as fast as possible but that presented a challenge since it is harder to carry a larger patient out when its dead weight. ALS may be great with their state of the art technology but I prefer basic let's get the patient packaged and transported to the hospital no bells no whistles. I believe there should be no delay in transport because you never know when that call could go south...and when it goes south it does very quickly if you are not prepared for it. There is a code of silence what happens in the rig stays in the rig. This isn't right. I disagreed with the plan and was prompted told to let ALS handle it as care had just been transferred to them.
