Casco Rescue moved quickly to apply an LMA and extricated the patient to the awaiting roller skates. In the back I started a surgical airway and rapidly shifted gears to the alcohol swab. I charged the blood stopper to Samoset and pressed the “Easy” button. The smell was intense. The patient’s eyeball had caught fire, literally, as a result of the Foley care despite my use of a Diesel bolus.
Needless to say the accepting Dr. Roby at Northern Cumberland Memorial Hospital was not at all amused at our predicament and immediately started Lasix.
