Overdose

EMS World article:

We’re in the basement of a triple-decker in a run-down neighborhood, on scene with a man down, strong pulse, respirations 6 a minute. The house appears abandoned. It’s dark down there, rays of light creep through filthy windows, spiderwebs cast eerie shadows against the walls, mortar crumbles, dust mites abound.

The person who called for help is gone; it’s just us, the bugs and a man about to die. I put the pulse-ox monitor on his finger, 82%, and then key the mic.

“Rescue 1 to Fire Alarm, send a company to 2143 Elmwood for assistance.”
