TV3’s Ireland’s Paramedics captures the highs and lows of pre-hospital emergency care in a captivating episode on Thursday at 9pm.
In episode three, crews respond to an emergency call from a farm in the North East where a half tonne hay bale has fallen on top of a farmer in his tractor. Arriving on the scene the crew quickly realise that the patient has suffered neck injuries and must move fast to remove him.
Intermediate care crew Ritchie and Aoife are dispatched in Cork to an elderly man who is due to be transferred to hospital for a check-up, but on arrival things are not as they seem.
Call takers at the National Emergency Operations Centre deal with every type of emergency call, including talking expecting mothers and bystanders through delivering babies over the phone, and when one woman goes into labour in the middle of a shop, time is of the essence to safely deliver the baby.
From falls, trips and spills to time critical medical emergencies, Thursday’s episode of Ireland’s Paramedics on TV3 is full of highs and lows.
