So today’s the day, it’s come round too quick
To have a test to see if I pass
A scenario day with bags full of kit
I’m nervous as hell but I’ve go to do this.
We all sit and wait to take it in turn
Discussing the points of what we will run
My SMART approach, ABC’s checked
I doing this now, just remember to breathe
My crew mate works hard as my thoughts run it through
I’m checking it once, maybe twice
Just take it slow and consider the tricks
It will go fine, you’re ready for this.
It’s time to use skills that are new
A technician you’re skilled, paramedic too
Keep going and think, write notes as you go
Calm approach works best, it’s just a show
The end closes near and the drugs are in
Consider what’s next, think and step back
A ROSC is now clear and you’re prepping to move
Remember the flow of what steps to take.
It’s nearly over, be relaxed and be pleased
You’ve done all you can, the patient is good
A handover done, it’s completed and finished
Have pride in yourself, well done you did it.

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
