And I should mention Tancred gave me specific permission to speak to other chirurgeons, and he was discussing the incident publicly, so we are not breaking any confidentiality here. But please keep this among ourselves.I escorted the first ambulance to Patient 1. When I arrived, he was being attended by at least one other Chirurgeon. He refused care from EMS quite emphatically and repeatedly, in fact their presence was agitating him. I asked EMS to wait outside while he calmed down and was persuaded to allow their assistance.While they were waiting outside, Patient 2 became unresponsive. Having been refused at the first patient, they attended at the second and immediately called for a second EMS unit to attend Patient 1 when he was ready.My first aid training says that responsiveness is right up there with ABC and should be treated just as seriously, but your and their mileage may vary.Sometimes s***tuff just happens in great leaps and bounds. One deals with it the best they can.Kaellyn-------Original Message-------From: Claude GagneDate: 09/13/06 14:40:54Subject: Re: [E-Chir] Please , no grip...Hmmm, sorry for pointing this out but did you not just ask us to keep patient confidentiality and then reveal a personal condition.----- Original Message ----

Subject: [E-Chir] Please , no grip...I first must apologize as I am in a rush today and tend to fly,By the seat of my pants...May I ask one small favour of one and all...?Please, in future, may I suggest we not "relay the patients name".It is just a matter of patient confidentiality.Tankred is a good and proud man and does not like to discuses, what he considers a "weakness".I was there when he went into bronchial spasm and yes it was a triage situation.Tankred suffers from COPD.Derfel.
