I can't say I recommend it. I was chilling in a triage bay reading a book and then my heart started pounding so I put on the pulse ox in triage. 'Bout that time I got the most awful feeling, like the top of my head was about to fly off and none of my limbs would work. I don't recommend it and now understand why people look ghastly when they come in like this.
I banged on the door, and my tech was on the other side of it making fun of me with a security guard! I banged again and he finally wandered in. I said, "Yeah I'm about to pass out." He thought I was kidding but then he looked at the Dynamap and grabbed my shoulders while I slid out of the chair like a pale sweaty Gumby. Oh, and there was yelling. Him: "I NEED SOME HELP RIGHT NOW." Charge nurse: "This is why God made your triage nurse." Him: "It's for her!" Then four nurses came running down the hall. Apparently.
Seems that being picked up (entirely by my tech) and tossed in a wheelchair and then ending up in an ER bed was good for my system because I converted and all was well after a while. I went back to work after I no longer matched the sheets. I still don't feel very well.
That was just some weird weird stuff right there. But it makes a good story. My tech made me get a full set of vitals on myself before I returned to triage and he propped the door open to keep an eye on me. Ha.
