Yes it's been a bad day

Post by LyndaW on Fri Aug 08, 2014 10:57 pm

First topic message reminder :

And I'm still all shook up. Long story cut short, I had to call an ambulance to my son when he was on the verge of collapse with chest pains, shortness of breath and sweating profusely. Well you might guess what I feared and if he could have spoken he would have said it as well.

Paramedic came - son's heartrate was over 200 per minute and his blood pressure was in his boots. Back up was called and would you believe it not any of them felt able to get him downstairs in a chair, so they called the fire brigade! Meanwhile, original paramedic was trying all sorts of things, including son blowing into an empty syringe. On the third attempt, it was like a miracle - heartrate dropped suddenly to 90 and son sat up and said "it's all gone now, I'm fine". And he was!

Obviously they still wanted him to go to hospital, but son refused as he felt absolutely normal again. Fire brigade were cancelled and big bus ambulance left. Original paramedic explained that what son had had was a Super Ventricular Tachycardia - a short-circuiting of the electrical signals to the heart which caused it to quiver instead of beating normally. He was seconds away from being shocked with those paddle things.

So I'm still a bit shaky, not thinking on all levels and may not participate as much as I should tonight.

Both of you....go to your rooms to think about your behaviour. You can come out when you can behave yourselves & NOT BEFORE!  tongue

That's kind of you to ask, Tracy  hug 

He's had no more "episodes" and will have an ECG and blood test when he gets around to booking it with our GP practice nurse.
