SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, May 15, 2013 Page 61 ' I I I " When to Call an Ambulance... In honor or EMS Week, ACEP offers tips for when to call EMS. Always call EMS if someone needs immediate medical treatment. To make this decision, ask yourself the following questions: Is the person's condition life-threatening? Could the person's condition women and become life threat- ening on the way to the hospital? Does the person require the skills or equipment of paramed- ics or emergency medical technicians? Could the distance or traffic conditions cause a delay in get- ting the person to the hospital? If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," or if you are unsure, it's best to call EMS, ACEP stressed. Paramedics and EMTs can begin medical treatment at the scene and on the way to the hospital and alert the emergency department of the per- son"s condition en route. When you call for help, speak calmly and clearly. Give your name, address and phone number; provide the location of the patient and describe the problem. Finally, don't hang up until the dispatcher tells you to, because he or she may need more infor- mation or give you instructions. i i!:!?iiii iil/!ii?ii/!?!il i i' From left: Dean Baker, Dave Hemp, Buddy Baumann, Paula McGarvey, Amy Koblegard, Teri Herder- Blahnik, Ford Ankrum, Beth Bender, Bret Buchman, Tom Hansen, Eric Belling, Sarah Davis.
