...and furthermore, I refuse to post in this thread because it will only go to keep it alive and thus it will not die, cease to be, become no more, go the the thread resting place in the sky, meet it's maker, kick the bucket, push up daisies...well you get my point.

Cain. Put that medic bag away.
Look guys, I've done everything I could!
It wasn't breathing when I found it. I started compressions and rescue breathing while tiny held C-spine. I intubated it and I am now bagging it with 3 liters of O2. It was in v-tach, so I shocked it and finally got some resemblance or sinus after 2 hits working up to 200 joules. Now, it's S-T segmants are elevated and it's throwing tomb stones on the strip. It's O2 sats have bottomed out, the end-tidal CO2 numbers are off. It's pupils are blown, there is CSF pouring out it's ears and and C1 through C7 feel like a bag of broken dishes. It has some pretty severe head trauma. It doesn't look good. I would go ahead and notify the family to come in to the hospital and identify the body... That's it... I'm calling it! TOD is 1033 hours.
