11 Sample Scenarios Instructors must complete 3 scenarios with their personnel in order to complete the Lesson Plan and CE Outline. Instructors may use any scenario listed below, or they may develop their own scenarios. Scenarios must include one asthma patient and one anaphylaxis patient. In addition, instructors must utilize one adult scenario and one pediatric scenario. Sample Scenario 1: You are dispatched to an 8 y/o male patient that is suffering an allergic reaction from peanuts. You arrive to find an 8 y/o male patient alert to verbal stimuli in the care of a babysitter. The babysitter states the patient ate a Snickers bar he stole from her purse and then developed hives. The babysitter states the patient has a known peanut allergy. The babysitter did not have access to the patient s Epi-Pen Junior but knows the patient is supposed to receive epinephrine if he consumes peanuts. The babysitter states the patient weighs 22 kg. Initial patient assessment reveals hives all over the patient s torso. The patient presents in severe respiratory distress, cannot speak in complete sentences, and is very lethargic. The patient has an audible wheeze that is confirmed in all fields through auscultation. Vital Signs: BP 60/40, HR 160, Respirations: 44, Pulse Oximetry: 85% Sample Scenario 2: You are dispatched to an elementary school for shortness of breath. You arrive to find a 6 y/o male patient alert on the playground sitting in the tripod position. The patient s teachers state that the patient has a history of asthma. The patient has self-administered an albuterol rescue inhaler with no relief. The patient has no allergies and weighs 19 kg. Initial patient assessment reveals wheezes in all lung fields. The patient is in severe respiratory distress with retractions of the intercostal muscles. The patient again administers his own rescue inhaler. This does not appear to help the patient. The patient becomes increasingly agitated and is unable to speak. It appears that the patient is experiencing impending respiratory failure. Vital Signs: BP 90/40, HR 130, Respirations: 40, Pulse Oximetry 80%

12 Sample Scenarios (continued) Sample Scenario 3: You are dispatched to a 76 y/o female patient with shortness of breath. The patient s husband greets you at the door and states the patient has been having an asthma attack for 2 hours without relief. The husband states that the patient is healthy other than her asthma. The husband reports the patient was intubated once for an asthma attack. The patient s asthma is normally well controlled with her rescue inhaler. The patient has no allergies. The patient is found sitting on the edge of her bed in severe respiratory distress. Initial patient assessment reveals retractions of the intercostal muscle and diminished lung sounds in all fields and wheezing in all lung fields. The patient cannot speak more than one word at a time. The patient denies any chest pain by shaking her head. The patient attempts to administer her rescue inhaler but is not able to administer the medication. The patient appears to be deteriorating rapidly. Vital Signs: BP 148/90, HR 122 regular, Respirations 44 and labor, GCS 15 Sample Scenario 4: You are dispatched to an unknown medical at Billy s Seafood Hut. You arrive to find a 20 y/o female patient that presents with an allergic reaction to shellfish. The patient s friend states she began having an allergic reaction after sampling the seafood surprise. The patient s friend attempted to administer the patient s Epi-Pen but managed to inject the epinephrine into the patient s belt. Your partner confirms this statement by inspecting the patient s belt. Initial assessment reveals oral swelling and an audible wheeze. The patient reports vomiting prior to EMS arrival and feeling nauseous. The patient reports that she has an anaphylactic reaction every time she is exposed to shellfish. Vital Signs: BP 90/60, HR 140 regular, Respirations 36 and labored, GCS 15.
