If an Artery were to rupture and bleed either internally or externally, how long does a PT have before they "go" due to blood loss??Hey everyone! I'm currently studying to receive my EMT certification and plan on starting paramedic school as soon as possible. I went to university two years before finally knowing what I want to do with my life and I love where I'm at and what I'm doing with a passion. Any tips? Would love to hear from others who have a passion for emergency medicine!What are some good podcasts for beginning students? Preferably emergency medicine focusedI want to become a pediatrician or EMS, but I’m still in highschool. Any tips on continuing to learn about general medicine and how I can advance untill college? 87F vomiting dark red blood.

Pt states he has hx of asthma, covid 3 weeks ago and started feel SOB yesterday and believes it's his asthma attacks as he had in the past. Pt has tried his inhaler with no improvement. Pt is diaphoretic and appears SOB. BP 133/86, HR 110 SPO2 93(room air) End tidal(N/A). Lungs sounds revealed diminished bilateral wheeze. He was then started on a duo neb and pt stated that he feels a little better and SPO2 becomes 100%. While enroute to hospital pt states he is getting worse and becomes more agitated and SOB. He doesn't want a IV but says that he has had issues before and he was given a shot. Terbutiline .25mg subq was given and with no affect, Duo nebs were repeated. Wheb arrived at hospital pt was changed from a yellow to a red stabilization case and pt was intubated. My question is why was he SPO2 didnt reflect his symptoms. Is this a case of a VQ mismatch?
