nurses do count

  1. I am not aware of the type of defibrillators you use in the USA, but we have recently progressed to automated defibs.
    I witnessed a lady go into pulseless VT today and shocked her.
    I didn't feel anything at the time ( apart from the adrenaline pumping thro my veins), but I now feel so proud to be a nurse. I am the first nurse in our hospital to defib a patient and the first to get one back.

    I'm not a person to blow my own trumpet and I'm usually very lacking in confidence.

    It was a terrible day but it has made me feel whole again, it makes up for all the ones you loose.

    Nurses do count!!!!!!

    Congratulations, Michelle!
    There is nothing like getting somebody back from a code. It very rarely happens, but when it does, it makes all of the others to come worthwhile. Keep up the good work!
