Upper-Intermediate - Emergency Room (D0046)

A: Help! Are you a doctor? My poor little Frankie has

stopped breathing! Oh my gosh, Help me! I tried

to perform CPR, but I just don’t know if I could

get any air into his lungs! Oh, Frankie!

B: Ellen, get him hooked up to a monitor! Someone

page Dr. Howser. Get the patient to hold still, I

can’t get a pulse! Okay, he’s on the monitor.

His BP is falling! He’s flatlining!

A: NOOOOOO! Frankie! Nurse! Do something!

B: Someone get her out of here! Get me the defibrillator. Okay, clear! Again! Clear! Come on!

dammit! I’m not letting you go! Clear! I’ve got a

pulse!

C: Okay, what’s happening?
