The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 13
On it goes...
UDATED: Previous version said Sergio Ramos is retired. He is NOT retired. My bad! According to this article:
After a year to forget, due to his never-ending injuries, PSG defender Sergio Ramos is on the way to a contract renewal
Sergio Ramos has finally begun to shine at PSG.
What’s right is right, even if no one’s right about it.
Well, like Sergio Ramos, the famous Real Madrid defender, who some outlets had reported faced retirement with a made-up condition they were calling “old calf syndrome,” (source: thesun.co.uk) we have many stories of injury or — not even injury sometimes, just pain and malaise and a body that doesn’t work right. Here we have a cricket player in a knee brace. Don’t cricket players end up in knee braces sometimes? Well:
May 31 — “Former Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni has been making headlines recently due to a knee injury that has caused concern among fans and cricket enthusiasts.”
“The specifics of the injury have not been fully disclosed, but reports suggest that the 41-year-old has been struggling with knee pain for some time. It's believed that the injury may have been aggravated during the Indian Premier League 2023 edition, where Dhoni guided Chennai Super Kings to the title.
The intensity of Dhoni's knee pain is yet to be determined […]”
“Once the extent of the injury is determined, the medical team will develop a customized treatment plan for the player's rehabilitation and recovery.”
Hoping to assess the level of pain? At once an absurd and horrifying prospect.
May 31 — “Emily Raines, an acute care nurse at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, was on Southwest Flight 553 when she and her boyfriend heard a call from a flight attendant for anyone with medical experience on the plane - as a fellow passenger was experiencing a medical emergency.”
“The ailing man had fallen unconscious with no pulse.”
‘The situation grew dire as the man slumped over in his seat, his face completely purple. "It was quite alarming, obviously, seeing his face look that way," Raines said.
After performing multiple rounds of compressions, Raines was able to revive the man roughly seven minutes before the plane landed. "I would say about seven minutes before we landed is when we got him back to life," she said.’
‘"We're still not completely sure what happened. He didn't have a heart attack, but his heart stopped. They believe that multiple factors played a role, mostly due to his low oxygen levels," Raines explained.’ [emphasis added]
Headline: Shotted nurse and shotted boyfriend, baffled by obvious vaccine injury, barely restrain themselves from making a Tik-Tok video on the airplane after saving man’s life. It reminds me of the Coast Guard’s fairly gratuitous Go-pro footage of rescuing that little 3 year-old girl from the cruise ship — complete with fist bumps and a gift teddy bear and everything.
May 30 — “A Gordonsville man died at the scene of a two-vehicle crash [on] Sunday.”
“[His car] rear-ended a 2016 Honda Civic. [It then] continued off the right side of the roadway and collided with a building.
[The man] died at the scene of the crash due to his injuries. The driver of the Honda [was] not injured in the crash.
A medical emergency is considered a factor in the crash.”
There’s a video with this report on the above incident that includes some very interesting traffic statistics about the increased rate of traffic fatalities in 2021:
May 31 — According to the video, Police Chief Mark Roberts reports that the driver was well-known in the community. The car sped up first before hitting the house.
Turns out it was a fatal heart attack. Mystery solved.
May 30 — “A man was found in a potentially serious condition following a medical incident in Coventry.”
“A man was found to be in a potentially serious condition, confirmed West Midlands Ambulance Service.”
“[…] we found a man in a potentially serious condition.” Okay, we get it!!
May 28 — “Police were called to In It Together festival near Port Talbot on Friday evening after the boy suffered a medical emergency shortly before 8.30pm.
The boy, who has not been named, died in the ambulance before reaching hospital.”
People do die at music festivals. Hopefully soon we find out more.
May 31 — “Paramedics and an air ambulance were called to a medical emergency in Lynn this afternoon.”
“One patient was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.”
UPDATE: You know, I can’t find any information at all about vaccination of K-9’s. Anybody know anything about it?
Dog lovers turn your heads.
May 31 — “A Clayton County K-9 died after a medical emergency last week, police say.
At 2 p.m. on May 25, Wade suffered a medical emergency inside a patrol car while at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.
Officers rushed the K-9 to a nearby medical facility, where a veterinarian said the dog passed away.
It is unclear what the medical emergency was.
Wade was taken to a local veterinary school where police said he got a necropsy performed.”
A necroscopy? Dog’s getting better treatment than people do. Let’s see if we can get them to test for the spike protein.
