The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 38
Flying, delivering, warning, driving, jogging, perpetrating, panting, helping, booking, policing, suing, and an air ambulance called to a preschool. All you could expect, and more. It's TROME
JUN 28 REPORTS
‘A long-haul Lufthansa flight faced significant delay following a medical emergency onboard that led to not one but two diversions.’
The second diversion was the flight crew reaching their maximum working hours and having to switch out with another crew.
‘North Texas postal worker Eugene Gates Jr., 66, died on June 20 after he collapsed while delivering mail amid a dangerously high heat index, according to multiple reports — and now United States Postal Service (USPS) shifts in Texas will be starting earlier.’
‘The heat index the day the worker died reached 115 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest recorded temperature in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1980, according to a local news outlet.’
A homeowner rushed outside to perform CPR after Gates lost consciousness, but he was later pronounced dead at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. The cause of death has yet to be determined by the medical examiner.’
Ah, well, apparently the medical examiner is still baffled. I know it takes them time to do their work. It will be nice to find out the ruling. In the meantime, I’m assuming the signs of heat stroke are pretty well-understood. But I could be wrong. Victims of heat stroke can’t sweat, for one thing. Anyway, I really don’t know one way or the other.
The rest of the article warns about the heat. As if they think heat is new, lol.
I’ve been seeing this article and ones like it quite a lot. Apparently, so many people are feeling so tired these days it seems like a new phenomenon. And maybe it is a new phenomenon. Heat, however, is not new.
‘It's widely accepted that hot weather makes you feel a little bit sleepy.
But have your energy levels hit rock bottom during the UK's latest warm spell?’
‘If so, you're certainly not alone.
Social media is flooded with people complaining about feeling sluggish, heavy-eyed and in desperate need of a nap.’
Pfft. Read more if you want. As far as I can tell, the article doesn’t spend any time explaining how this is a new phenomenon. It boils down to another warm weather warning. But with a twist. This version has some modified mRNA zest in it, several grains of ABTV, and a dash of TROME.
Here it is. Heatwave tiredness. Our friends over at the Covid BC Rumble channel highlight youtuber William Taudien describing some of the recent illnesses he’s been experiencing. He even got right down to the root cause of it. ABTV.
Here’s the video it’s taken from. The 10:07 mark is about the time he starts describing his illness. Silly goose would probably never guess it’s down to the heat.
There’s a photo but I’m not going to pay to use it. It’s basically just a picture of a car parked too close to a tree anyway. And plus the car’s parked on the grass for some reason. Well, if you have an appreciation for serene yet unsettling dichotomous juxtaposition, then TROME is certainly the right place for you.
‘A driver suffered a fatal medical emergency Wednesday on Hunters Trail in Cumberland Township, Adams County Chief Deputy Coroner Francis Dutrow said. He declared the woman dead at the scene just off Chambersburg Road (U.S. Route 30). The SUV came to rest facing eastward against a small tree in front of the Gettysburg Pediatrics office. Dutrow did not release the woman’s name, pending notification of her family.’
‘A 19-year-old man was taken to the hospital after he reportedly suffered a medical emergency while driving and crashed into a pole in Dayton Tuesday morning.’
‘[The driver] had a medical incident, resulting in the car crossing the center line and into incoming traffic, according to a crash report filed by the Dayton Police Department. The car went off the left side of the road and hit a utility pole.’
‘A two-car collision on a U.S. Route 9W bridge Wednesday morning has left a man in critical condition at HealthAlliance Hospital in Kingston, Saugerties police said.’
‘An investigation determined that [the driver] had suffered a medical emergency while driving northbound, causing him to lose control of his vehicle and crash into the bridge guardrail. The vehicle then veered into oncoming traffic and struck the Hyundai.’
‘Police said [the other driver] was not injured in the collision.’
‘A driver crashed his vehicle into a residence Wednesday morning in northwest suburban Niles.
The 30-year-old suffered a medical emergency while driving around 5:26 a.m. and crashed his car into a home […]’
‘Four people were inside the residence at the time of the crash but no one was injured.
A natural gas meter at the residence was broken during the crash, causing a gas leak.
The leak was addressed by Nicor, but the residence is currently inhabitable due to the broken gas meter.
The driver suffered minor injuries and was transported by paramedics to a local hospital. He was cited for driving off the roadway, police said.’
Okay, so: uninhabitable home, natural gas leak, wrecked car, hospital expenses, and a ticket for driving off the road. It’s the French word for salad.
8) Jogger hit, killed in Imlay City when man in his 70s has medical emergency, loses control of pickup truck
‘An investigation is underway after a jogger was hit and killed by a pickup truck driven by a man who experienced a medical emergency Wednesday afternoon in Imlay City.
The man in his 70s was driving his truck southbound on Almont Street near Third Street around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday when he lost consciousness, according to the Imlay City Police Department.’
‘When he passed out, his wife grabbed the steering wheel from the passenger seat and tried to bring the truck to a stop, officials said.
The truck continued for about 80 yards and veered right towards a vacant building at 150 Almont. It hit a jogger who was running south before clipping the corner of the building and coming to rest, officials said.’
‘Authorities are withholding the names and hometowns of those involved, as the investigation is still ongoing. Officials didn’t release the age of the jogger.
The driver's condition was not disclosed and it was not clear if his wife was injured in the crash.’
‘A Limestone County man who faced multiple felony charges after a 2018 incident died in the custody of law enforcement after experiencing a “medical episode” on Wednesday.
According to a spokesperson for the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, Ronnie Parker was taken into custody on Wednesday morning after he did not show up to court on Tuesday. Parker was detained in Lawrence County.
While he was being taken to the Limestone County Jail, Parker began to experience a “medical episode.” A medic, who was with the team transporting Parker, began life-saving procedures and emergency medical services were immediately notified. Parker was taken to Decatur Morgan Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to Lawrence County Coroner, Scott Norwood, the “medical episode” Parker experienced showed “seizure-like symptoms.”
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office will conduct the death investigation. The body will be taken for an autopsy by the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.’
‘At around 3:40 p.m. first responders received reports of a CHP officer who was suffering a medical emergency on Sand Canyon Road and the 14 Freeway, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department officials.
The officer was reported to have been experiencing a stroke, according to officials.
The officer was transported to the hospital by first responders. Their condition is not known as of the publication of this article.’
‘A visitation is set for Thursday evening and funeral services will take place Friday morning in Conroe for a 40-year Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office lawman who died Saturday.
Capt. Kenneth “Kenny” Dunlap, 62, died after a medical emergency at his home. ‘
‘The Newton Police Department says a retired K-9 officer has died after suffering a sudden medical emergency on Tuesday. Bella was 9 years old.’
From a NewtonKSPolice Facebook post:
‘We are heartbroken to announce the passing of retired Police Service Dog (PSD) Bella. PSD Bella passed away peacefully at the age of 9 on June 27, 2023, after a sudden medical emergency.’
‘Police and a good Samaritan were able to intercept a driver experiencing a medical emergency Tuesday morning in Laurel.
Just after 11:30 a.m., a Laurel Police officer on patrol saw a white Mitsubishi SUV driving erratically on Sussex Highway at Discount Land Road. Police say the vehicle was traveling at approximately 30 mph on the shoulder of the roadway, swerving back and forth between the shoulder and the left travel lane, and occasionally leaving the roadway into the grass embankment.
The officer subsequently tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver failed to yield for a significant distance. The original pursuing officer continued to block traffic behind the vehicle while trying to get the driver’s attention and bring him to a stop. In the Delaware Avenue area, police say an unknown good Samaritan saw what was going on and passed the pursuit in their personal vehicle. They then drove in front of the erratic driver and helped the officer slow the pursuit to a stop on the side of the roadway.
The good Samaritan moved away from the scene immediately to allow officers to contact the driver. It was quickly determined that the driver was experiencing a diabetic emergency, and the officer immediately rendered medical aid and requested EMS to the scene.
The driver, an 81-year-old Crisfield man, was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition. Officers were able to contact the family of the driver to notify them of the incident and coordinate caretaking of the man upon his eventual release from the hospital.’
‘The father of a Penn State student who died just before the start of his freshman year filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Mount Nittany Health and providers his family believes led to the 19-year-old’s wrongful death.’
‘Patrick sought medical assistance at the Mount Nittany Medical Center Emergency Department, citing pain in his right buttock. Because of a history of blood clots and a protein C deficiency that increases the risk of blood clots, Patrick was concerned he could have a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or a blood clot in the lower body, the lawsuit states. He had been prescribed a blood thinner but was not taking it as frequently as prescribed.’
‘The lawsuit alleges that a physician’s assistant in the hospital’s emergency department, Brooke Koch, documented that she examined Patrick’s left buttock, not his right, where he had cited he was experiencing pain. Koch ordered an ultrasound of his “lower right extremity,” and discharged him after diagnosing him with pain in the right leg, the lawsuit states.’
‘Four days later, Patrick told his resident assistant that he was “experiencing right thigh pain” that he thought was a blood clot and the RA called an ambulance. He died at Mount Nittany Medical Center, about 30 minutes after the ambulance was called. An autopsy revealed that Patrick died from a saddle pulmonary embolism, according to the lawsuit.’
‘Patrick loved snowboarding, music and basketball and was “beyond excited” to attend Penn State, his obituary read.’
Not one mention of the vaccine.
If only that one doctor had looked at the right cheek, eh? I doubt it. I don’t think a buttock examination would have either detected or prevented this pulmonary embolism. A saddle pulmonary embolism. The worst kind.
15) San Diego County Man Arrested for Probation Violation Dies After Suffering Medical Emergency During Booking Process
‘San Diego County Sheriff’s Department officials report that on June 26, 2023, Sheriff's Homicide investigators were notified 66-year-old Paul Arthur Heimark, an individual in Sheriff's custody, passed away at Alvarado Hospital around 9:30 p.m. Heimark had medical issues that were identified by Sheriff medical staff at the time of his booking. He was admitted to the hospital directly after completing the intake process. Heimark has been receiving care at the hospital and was never housed at a detention facility.’
‘As is the protocol for all in-custody deaths, the Sheriff's Homicide Unit will conduct a thorough investigation. The cause and manner of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner's Office.’
Serious dearth of information here. That’s usually not a good sign.
‘An air ambulance was sent to a Nottinghamshire village as part of a response to a medical emergency reported at a nursery. Paramedics were sent to Small People nursery in Colston Road, Cropwell Bishop after receiving a call at 4.04pm on Tuesday, June 27.
East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) said an ambulance, two fast response cars and an air ambulance were deployed after reports of a medical emergency. It said one patient was taken to Queen's Medical Centre in a crewed ambulance.
A spokesman for EMAS said: “We received a call at 4.04pm on 27 June to Small People nursery in Cropwell Bishop. The caller reported a medical emergency.
"We sent a crewed ambulance and two paramedics in fast response cars. The air ambulance was also in attendance. One patient was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre via crewed ambulance.”’
Okay. So we don’t know the person’s age, sex, condition, or what happened to them. It was just another air ambulance called to a preschool. Fine.
