he was on fire, and I said, 'he's on fire, put him out,'" she told WKRN.

"Who tried to defib me, y'all?"
 
2022-11-30 9:41:41 PM  
Hospital staff have a lot to keep track of, but "Has this patient I'm about to defib been getting pure O2 for the last several hours?" should be near the top of the list.

Bobby Ray Stark had been suffering from ailments such as bed sores and a foot infection and had been bedridden for the last seven years
___
Any help would be greatly appreciated while she is forced to make changes that were not even a thought or concern previously


I reckon if my spouse was in the neighborhood of their 6th decade (I assume), bedridden for the last seven years, suffered bed sores and a foot infection severe enough to have had a foot taken off, and currently holding down a hospital bed - I might have had some inkling that passing (as some folks say) could be a possibility, a real possibility, going forward.

TBH, via a fireball following a cardiac event in the hospital would be unexpected.  A fireball caused by a defibrillator used while or after the patient was using o2 (again, like the age, one assumes) should be less of a shock, at least to the hospital itself.

But death itself?  Certainly on the table.

My thoughts as well. If he was having difficulty breathing, that's kind of an indicator that the O2 system might be a problem...

You lit a patient on fire. Well some lawyer is crying tears of joy right now.

Maybe, or maybe he was filled with delicious, delicious alcohol.

I mean, something was keeping him bedridden.

Sucks that they lit him on fire, but, let's be realistic, all those problems plus a cardiac arrest requiring defibrillation, he was not long for this world anyway.

And I am more than aware of how this sounds coming from my Fark handle.
 
2022-11-30 10:28:17 PM  
In a humane world he would have been put down years ago. If I kept a pet alive like that I'd get charged with cruelty.
 
2022-11-30 10:30:16 PM  
Well they do warn you about removing your O2 sensor

That was my initial reaction without rtfa. How much had he had to drink?
Turns out it was the pure O2 in his system.

Not in his system. If you have that much O2 in your system, you're already farked, as far as I know.

They probably took the o2 off of him, but forgot to close the valve. Enough O2 could have collected around his bedsheets and clothes to basically turn everything flammable.

When the ex & I were house hunting, we were shown a place where the elderly couple were going into a home the split second the check cleared.

Sitting in the livingroom recliner was the old dude, asleep, on O2, with a burnt filter between his lips & a pockmarked blanket under his chin.

We noped the hell out without looking at the rest of the house, and there was no way we were going to buy a place that'd blow up .05 seconds before the ink dried.

More likely in clothes and bedding.  O2 makes combustible items much more combustible.

Maybe put an oderant in O2 like they do in natural gas?

What smell would be pleasant enough to breathe in, gentle enough to not aggravate lung/throat issues, AND be uncommon enough that it raises a big red flag if there's a leak?
