The Seizure Patient 500 – An EMS Race

Welcome back to the track, we have an exciting race lined up for you today!

In lane 1, returning despite multiple losses in recent hours, we have the Paramedics!  Trained to handle a number of emergencies, routine medical queries and even known to fight a fire here and there, they are armed to the hilt with just about anything to keep you alive for 30 minutes!


In lane 2, new to the race, is our caller.  Not entirely sure what’s going on, he is quick to the phone and that easy to dial number has been ingrained into his brain since birth. “Police, Fire, Medical, DIAL 911!”


And in lane 3, also a new comer to the race, the seizure patient.




Lane 3 is out into the lead quickly, having not slept last night and skipped breakfast to make this 6am flight.  She appears, well, no one knows for sure since everyone is half awake and not exactly sure what is happening.  No, wait…YES! Lane 3 is shaking nervous she is going to miss the flight suddenly seeing the time!

Lane 2 is close behind, grabbing the nearest phone and dialing that 3 digit number he knows so well.

Lane 1 is still in the starting blocks, they’re going to have a lot of catching up to do.

Lane 3 has begun to cry, sobbing something about missing a dear friend!  What are we to do?!

Lane 2 has contacted the 911 dispatcher and is describing the shaking, sobbing person infront of them.

The dispatcher starts to collect more information NO WAIT! Lane 1 is finally on the go!  Instead of questioning the caller, we have already sent the Paramedics screaming out of the gate to a reported seizure!  They are gaining fast!

Lane 2 hangs up the phone and pulls ahead slightly, but the seizure patient has, YES! has been given a boarding pass and directed to pass through security!

The Paramedics are making amazing time rounding the 3rd corner in lane 1 and are about to catch up with the caller in lane 2!  This is exciting!

Seeing the caller stopped, the Paramedics stop as well, assuming as one would, that the person having the seizure would be at least within ear shot.

No!  It’s a distraction!  Lane 3 has pulled so far ahead she can be seen running to her gate!




Second place is Lane 2, our caller, and the Paramedics appear confused but, hey, thanks for playing!
