We sent out a woman several years younger than me for further testing. Abdominal pain, nausea, fever. She gave her stated weight as a conservative (I'd say overly generous) 375 at last weigh-in about 2 years ago. I don't say this to be cruel or uncaring, but as a courtesy to the ambulance crew who was transporting; it would be uncool for them to drop people because they are unprepared with the right number of personnel. Size does sometimes matter. She was a very nice lady, and she was much more comfortable at the time of transfer thanks to minuscule doses of meds for pain and nausea.
The EMT/Paramedic crew took report, and agreed that an ACLS transport was unnecessary. The paramedic was busy training a new guy anyway, so the ensuing conversation took place out of her earshot. I wish it had taken place out of mine.
Male EMT to female EMT: "OK, do you want to drive or tech"
Female EMT: "It doesn't matter, whatever you want"
Male EMT: "Well, why don't you tech, since it is a female patient. That way you can have the girl on girl action"
Dead silence (except for the sound of my head hitting the underside of the desk as I drove under it to muffle my laughter).
