the "big folk" ambulance thread got me to remember some of my fonder morbidly obese calls.............. My personal best: 850 lb code blue in bedroom of tiny house. We shocked him once since he was in V-fib, but went to asystole and we stopped almost immediately. unless he was going to get up and walk to our ambulance we weren't going to be able to help him. called med control and they okayed it. Couldn't get an airway (his man breasts were literally covering his face on each side)...........compressions were useless...........took 2 engine companies and a ton of cops to get him out and to the morgue. They had to cut out one side of the bedroom wall around a window.....push him onto a tarp and a firetruck pulled him into the front lawn and from there i don't know how they got him to the funeral home/morgue...........i was long off shift. worst part was that it was Christmas morning.
