Always Listen to Your Mom .................

Remember how Mom always told you to have clean undies, in case you ever ended up in the ER? Yeah, I think most of us heard that at least once.

A few weeks ago, EMS brought in an elderly man in full cardiac arrest. He had a scar on his chest, indicating he had had a cardiac bypass sometime in the past. That's about all the info we had. During the course of the resuscitation, his pants were removed. Lo and Behold, instead of Boxers or Tighty Whities, he was wearing a Gold Lame', woman's Bikini bottom.

This kind of thing always makes for some pretty interesting conversation. Most of which I won't detail here.

Unfortunately, his will to die overcame our efforts to save him and resuscitation efforts were called off. One of the students asked, "What do you think happened"?

I calmly explained to her that having an obvious cardiac history, when he began having chest pains, he realized he would be going to the ER. Knowing that he was wearing his special fancy undies .....
