Unreal story Massive Kudos to the Docs and Nursing Staff very moving , makes me feel proud of the profession I chose

Vanessa C. -

Thanks for the message Marc. It means a lot.. And thanks for doing what you do!

As a doc who has practiced in rural Canada, (though not quite that rural), I have been in similar circumstances to this wonderful doc.
I would add that the length of the resuscitation had an ancillary meaning to the family. They know the team tried everything. A short period might have been perceived otherwise. Bravo!

Vanessa C. -

Thanks for the kind words and support. I know there are so many of us rural docs out there but it can certainly feel isolating at times so I really appreciate the message. And from a fellow Canuck too ;)

Anne M. -

Thanks for the story. It is so hard to understand the limitations of your system and have to work as hard as you can, ultimately knowing those limitations still exist. I work in Alaska, where we have some similar issues, esp in our off-the-road system areas. If Rural EM is going to become a more regular feature on EMRAP, I am sure the many EM docs up here would love to contribute stories and lessons from our experiences. We are getting more "modern" and evidence-based in our practice, but the realities of where we live are fascinating and will always throw us a few curve balls!

Vanessa Cardy has put together 3 of these cases coming soon in EMRAP. If the feedback stays like this we might have to get her to make it a permanent fixture!

I'm another doc working in rural Alaska, only accessible by (sometimes tenuous) air transport, and this content is wonderful. Please keep it coming!

Thanks for the support from the trenches, or rather, from the tundra!
