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. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
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.
