In my years of runnng volly ambulance, will never forget "Ray with the green eyes. Had taken this poor guy several times before, so he knew me by name. Was on 40 years old and has had several MI before. Had called us that day, not feeling well. First thing he said to me when I walked in is not to let him die. He was not in any distress at that time.
We loaded him into our ambulance. I sat in the jump seat up at his head, talking and reassuring him the whole way to the hospitail that I was going to take good care of him. As we were pulling up to the ER, he went unresponsive, and flatlined. No warning, no chest pain, nothing
Did CPR, into the hospital, and while they were shoking him, he would sit bolt upright, grab his chest and scream, then as he was flatlined, he was talking to his wife, telling her how much he loved her, telliing her where things she would need were. This went on for over an hour, the most heart wrenching code I have ever worked.
Had to go to the chiropractor the next day, from doing compressions, tore by back all out. To this day, "Ray with the green eyes" still is my worst call
