With no further hazards present, E3 cleared the scene and returned to quarters.

E3 was dispatched on a report of a syncopal episode and sudden onset of abdominal pain. Upon arriving on scene, crew members found one PT lying supine on the floor. PT care was initiated, and it was determined while attempting to obtain vital signs that the PT was critical and in need of emergency transportation due to low blood pressure and abdominal pain. The PT did not remember falling, but was alert to what was currently going on. A rapid trauma assessment was performed, but no obvious trauma was detected. EMS arrived on scene and PT care was transferred. The PT was packaged and loaded into the waiting ambulance for emergency transport to an area hospital.
