Im 11 hrs into a 12 hr shift and just got back from my first call of the night.

Got called for a woman in her 30s who is supposedly SOB. Arrived at her house, beating the BLS crew by a good 8 or 10 minutes. Pt is breathing fast, but moving great air and speaking in full sentences to me. Turns out she had an out pt procedure done yesterday mornign and they gave her vicodin for pain, she took it as prescribed and went to bed last night around midnight, to wake up 3 hrs later in a panic from a she got the O2 andcardiac monitor and IV access while waiting for the BLS crew...while enroute to Big town Hospital she began experiencing "chest pressure" and I gave her some ASA, but otherwise pt had no changes on EKG or in vital signs.
She was feeling better by time the ambulance got to her house and even better by time we got to the hospital...
