Florry,sorry poor choice of words. I know a paramedic is not a porter, and I know their worth .I know what a paramedic does. I was responding to the previous poster that her boyfriend would have checked and driven him to the hospital,that's all,her words,not mine.If you got something else from that,so be it,but I know what I meant.I was simply responding to the situation in the episode and the previous message,period. I was not talking about immediate care,car accidents,etc. We all take things personal and I take it personal that people think the recovey position is ridiculous just because they don't or wouldn't do it.We all need a filter or two. I also know Ryan didn't need CPR,and didn't say that. I said the recovery position made sense to use if there was a danger of vomiting or aspiration,which is true.The recovery position is not exclusively used after CPR,plain and simple.
