Letters to the Editor Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, lIarch '13, 1'9"97"27 (continued from page 11 ) Apology to the Silver Tappers This letter is in response to the letter from Rosemarie Ratcliff which appeared in your March 6, 1997 newspa- per. First on behalf of all the residents of Esmeralda County and especially the Republican ones, I would like to apologize to Rosie Radcliff, Johnny V. and all the mem- bers of The Silver Tappers for the rude treatment they received at the Lincoln Day Dinner held in Beatty on February 22. I have seen the Silver Tappers in person and know that they put on an excellent show that is en- tertaining and certainly worth watching. Those rude people who continued to visit at Mr. Evenson's invita- tion missed one hell of a show. They were with the ex- ception of Mr. Evenson and a very few others not Es- meralda County Residents. This was a joint Nye/Esmer- alda Lincoln Day dinner and not well attended by Es- meralda County Republicans who have pretty much been alienated by Mr. Evenson's tacky behavior and do not desire to be associated with him on any level. I would like to assure these entertainers that Mr. Evenson does not reserve his overbearing rude manner and scowls for them alone. Any person who has had to deal with him on any matter in an official or unofficial capacity has endured his arrogant and childish tantrums and many have been subjected to his four mouthed self described "nuclear meltdowns".Myself and many other Esmeralda County residents regret the vote " e cast for him when he was elected District Attorney and I assure you that we will work tirelessly to make certain that he is not re-elected. Once again I would like to apologize to those enter- tainers for their shabby treatment and I hope that they do not write off Esmeralda County. Steve Evenson is not a native son of Esmeralda County and is most cer- tainly not representative of our resident population. The majority of our residents are not pompous bores but rather decent, caring, courteous people. Is/name and address withheld by request C.ER. is very important The alarm sounds! The dispatcher states. "Man down. Not breathing. C.RR. in progress. Possible cardiac ar- rest." Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops circulating blood, or stops beating entirely. An Emergency Medi- cal Technician's worse mghtmare. Your adrenaline kicks into the fight mode. Fight, to save someones life. The victim could be a relative, neighbor, or a stranger. All are treated with the same professionalism. Flight for Life is airborne. The ambulance with three E.M.T.'s on board respond Code 3, lights and siren. The Deputy, most likely will be the first on scene. Fire per- sonal are in route, to provide for flight, a safe landing. All three Public servants work together to provide the urgent care the victim needs. If there are any E.M.T.'s in the area of the scene, they too, will respond. The deputy arrives and gives dispatch more information con- cerning the victim,, which in turn is given to the ambu- lance personal. The ambulance, with the E.M.T.'s arrive on scene. The emergency medical supplies, consist of oxygen, a suc- tion device, a cardiac monitor with defibrillator unit ac- cessibility and other medical items. The patients carotid artery is checked for a pulse. No pulse. An airway is established, and C.RR. is taken over. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. You virtually breathe for the patient, and make the heart pump blood to the vital organs. Without this intervention, the patient is dead. Granted, this in- tervention is not as good as a healthy heart would do, but it will sustain life until advanced life support is avail- able. Advanced life support meaning, Flight for Life or a nearby Emergency Medical Hospital open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. Intravenous fluids are started T.K.O. - to keep open, for the medications the flight nurse will infuse. The patient is packaged for the arrival of flight, which is within a relatively short time. The E.M.T.'s, Fire department, Sheriff's deputies and the medical professionals on board Flight, all work to- gether in a desperate attempt to save a life. With the dedication to give their all. Heart and sole, and risk their own well being, to save another. After all of these procedures are done and the patient dies, that was meant to be. The heart muscle was just too weak to continue pumping, or too much damage had occurred. Even if the patient would have been in a hos- pital at the time of an arrest, there's no guarantees of survival. But, C.RR. does work and everyone should learn how to do it. Minutes count, from the time of onset of an attack, to help insure survival rate. For a Public Official to state at an open meeting," If that patient would have been brought to a certain medi- cal facility, then he or she would have lived." Is wrong! Only God determines that. He gives those medical pro- fessionals the power to do, what's humanly possible. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh. With all these professionals working together in unison, and still can- not revive the patient. Then, No Human Can!
