I know this has probably been done before, but I was just wondering if people would like to share their first code stories?
Or their most interesting codes? We've had a lot of resus and codes lately and would love to hear other peoples stories.

No my first code, but my most memorable. I was called into the ED at 11A because the place was jammed up. I asked what I could do to help. Somebody told me the guy in room three might have a kidney stone and needed to get IV med. I told her I would start the IV while she got the med. I saw the guy crossing the hall to go to the bathroom, limping, holding his abdomen. When I saw him go back, I went in. He says, "I have got to have something for this pain." I said, "I am going to do something about that right now."
At which point he falls over dead.
I drag the stretcher to a trauma room. We get things started and the harder we pump the bluer his left leg turns. Blew a triple A.
