EMS Artwork: Is there wheezing?

Wheezes, retractions, tachypnea and altered mental status lead to a quick assessment of asthma


This image was based on a call I did for a boy who was having an asthma attack. He was fine, but his father was distraught. His wife, the boys mother, had died a week prior from cancer. He said she used to deal with and handle these types of family matters. He told me he was really missing her and this just made it worse for him. The spirit is the boys mother still at her son’s side.
