A Christmas Resuscitation

A Christmas Resuscitation

T’was the night before Christmas
And all through the hall
The medics were eating
And having a ball
When out of the office
There came the chief
His eyes they were glazed
His face stricken with grief

“It seems that old Santa’s
Had a heart attack
I think that the cause
Was the weight of his sack”
The doors were flung open
And the engine was started
With lights flashing and sirens
The ambulance departed.

Oh what will we do
One medic he cried
It sounds like an arrest
And no matter how we’ve tried
We know our success rate
For ROSC is quite low
But try we must
And so on they did go

They sped through the streets
Taking corners too fast
They didn’t know how long
Poor Santa would last.
They got to his house
And then saw his plight
For Santa lay dead there
T’was a terrible sight

Try as they may
With chest compressions
And defibrillation
They had no success in
Returning circulation
Then one medic he said
Poor Santa won’t last
Get out the SMART BAG
We’re ventilating too fast!

And in a flash
The SMART BAG was applied
No Hyperventilation
Just perfect chest rise
Doing 30 to 2
And with good oxygenation
They soon got ROSC
T’was Santa’s salvation

They both cried with joy
For Christmas was saved
Santa mounted his sled
And with a wave
He turned to the crew
And without hesitation
Said “I know what saved me,
T’was ‘Controlled Ventilation’”!

Season’s Greetings and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to All
