Got to say how disappointed I was with this on a “normal” weekday between Christmas and New Year.
Wife woke up with her pulse at 140 and wouldn’t come down, we tried the vagus nerve reset trick shown before and did nothing. Meanwhile with a high pulse your BP can crash causing unconsciousness very fast.
Call 999 after a few questions about os she conscious, breathing etc I was told.
“We’re too busy to help go to your GP or call 111”
For someone experiencing cardiac issues…
Not impressed has we followed that advice could’ve been real problems. Took her to A&E despite being busy they triaged her INSTANTLY because of the cardiac nature. Bloods were taken, cannula fitted etc all within 10 minutes.
Then it was waiting for results unfortunately they couldn’t figure it out so she was there all day but they threw every test they had at her.
Sent home at 8pm with appt to go back to surgical assessment 8am following morning.
Long and short the small failed hernia op she had 12 years ago failed and is now a problem for one
Secondly she also had the start of a lung infection. Got referral for surgery there and then plus prescription for antibiotics.
Hospital was amazing, 999 very poor imagine if that had been the start of a cardiac event….
