Was it even pepper spray or some type of acid?

2017-08-15 00:17:06 UTC  

He received something at ultra high pressure. It's possible it was bear mace, or it could have been draino

2017-08-15 00:26:46 UTC  

I talked to Baked. It was apparently something called class 4 bear mace. Nasty stuff.

2017-08-15 00:31:55 UTC  

I though bear mace was weaker?

2017-08-15 00:32:22 UTC  

Which sounds odd but I swear I've read it in multiple places

2017-08-15 02:57:21 UTC  

It is weaker.

2017-08-15 02:58:15 UTC  

But if you get anything shot into your eyes at high pressure at close range, eye damage is a distinct possibility.

2017-08-15 03:17:16 UTC  

Makes sense.

2017-08-15 03:17:51 UTC  

Especially considering bear mace often times has a shot distance of 30 feet

2017-08-15 14:26:45 UTC  

@Deleted User, whatever @Erika used on me seemed pretty effective.

2017-08-15 14:29:02 UTC  

Good deal, i had heard online that everything was kind of just placebo effect. I didn't really believe that because i would think removing the agent would help.

2017-08-15 14:37:18 UTC  

@Louis Loire - NY @Erika did you guys have anything other than pepper spray? Had a cut with urine in it, that looked like it needed a couple stitches, and blunt trauma to the forearm proximal to the elbow.

2017-08-15 15:59:08 UTC  

@Deleted User I had two hypoglycemia cases to work with. The majority of what I dealt with was pepper spray.

2017-08-15 15:59:55 UTC  

@Deleted User was happy to be of service. I felt bad for the entire VIP crowd and you PSDs. Y'all got it rough and the corrupt police didn't do a damn thing.

2017-08-15 18:10:08 UTC  

I had multiple facial lacerations acid attacks oven cleaner attacks and cracked skulls

2017-08-15 18:10:19 UTC  

I treated about 15 people

2017-08-15 18:10:36 UTC  
2017-08-15 18:11:04 UTC  

I was also in the park till the very end i treated a few wounded at mc intryw as well

2017-08-15 18:15:32 UTC  

Lessons learned? @Erika @Louis Loire - NY i honestly didn't expect as much pepper spray as was there. We also need to plan an actual triage point next time, I think. What helped with the oven cleaner? Were there any Neuro symptoms with the skull fracture?

2017-08-15 18:16:33 UTC  

No just bleeding and stiches needed and rhe oven cleaner was highly toxic i had nothing and we were under fire from both cops and antifa it was a mad house

2017-08-15 18:17:03 UTC  

And yes i need to mix that stuff that Erika made my pepper spray wipes did jack shit

2017-08-15 18:17:28 UTC  

Told Nathan to not buy then again either he had the same ones

2017-08-15 18:22:58 UTC  

Is the person that got sprayed with the oven cleaner good? Seems like the best thing would be just flush with water, or vinegar (since oven cleaner is basic).

2017-08-15 18:25:07 UTC  

@Erika did you have a glucometer to check sugars, or were they just showing signs?

2017-08-15 18:52:08 UTC  

He was pretty messed up tried flushing it out he was making it worse by panicking he was the guy in the blue shirt with the black sun American flag

2017-08-15 18:52:23 UTC  

We got him out though

2017-08-15 18:52:59 UTC  

Any in eyes or airway?

2017-08-15 18:54:22 UTC  

@Erika did you treat a guy in white pants

2017-08-18 00:56:10 UTC  

@everyone if you are going to be part of a medic team at an event and need supplies, have someone (in leadership) who can confirm you will be there PM me, you also PM me, and I will get you most everything you need.

2017-08-18 00:57:42 UTC  

Nice stash

right wing medic squads

2017-08-18 01:01:04 UTC  

I think we learned from Cville that you can't have enough gauze rolls

2017-08-18 01:01:15 UTC  

But wait, there's more.

2017-08-18 01:05:33 UTC  

@Erika Your team was johnny-on-the-spot Saturday. I've wanted to commend you all for how effective and QRF you guys were. Just haven't really had the chance until now

2017-08-18 01:05:42 UTC  


2017-08-18 01:06:12 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL thank you. It was tough, but I think we were all happy to be there to help everyone who were in need

2017-08-18 01:06:16 UTC  

You guys were so busy and didn't want to bother you.

2017-08-18 19:18:44 UTC  

Yeah thanks again

2017-08-19 23:48:26 UTC  

I'm pretty certain I've got a minor case of plantar fasciitis. Anything I can do to quickly get back to running?
