Emergency Medical Response Scenario 1: You Are the Emergency Medical Responder You are called to a home of a couple in their 40s after the wife called because her husband had just collapsed in the bathroom. When you arrive, the woman tells you that her husband was complaining of indigestion and pressure in his chest and then all of sudden, he passed out. You accompany the woman to the upstairs bathroom and find the husband face-down on the floor with a small amount of what looks like vomit on the floor near his mouth. He is unconscious.

She is talking to the players and sipping on some water. She tells you that she got overheated, started to feel dizzy and then just fainted. I should have had something to eat after school today before practice but I was running late.
