I was working in EMS, and was transferring a 17 year old, 24 weeks gestation from one hospital to another. The doctor told me that she would not deliver before we got to a higher level hospital. Halfway through the trip, my shoes became soaked. I quickly checked the patient, and saw that I had a foot presentation. I called MedCom to alert them of the change in status. As I finished my report, I only heard silence on the other end. Quickly, I asked, "MedCom, did you copy?" The reply: Stand by, I'm thinking!
