SOB x 2

We got a call for shortness of breath. Turns out to be the same old lady that we've been on several times. She told us that she was having an asthma attack and that her inhaler was out. Amazing since it was out last week when we came out too. I think I can see a pattern here. We gave her a breathing treatment and then she signed out AMA

The next day we got another call for shortness of breath. This time it was another one of our more frequent callers. This patient has a history of CHF, an MI, and she just got out of the hospital after getting her 12 stints put in. I started a line on her and gave her some oxygen. After that I treated her with some nitroglycerin. None of which seemed to help. MBA finally showed up and we sent her down to the hospital.
