Code 3 for shortness of breath.
A middle-aged man opens his door. He does not appear to be in any distress.
“I took 4 Benadryls and I was looking on the internet. It said one of the signs that I overdosed is shallow breathing. I feel like my breathing is shallow.”
“Umm, I don’t even know what that means.”
“I feel like I’m not breathing hard enough.”
“You look just fine, sir. Why did you take 4 Benadryls?”
“It helps me sleep. I took 8 last night.”
“Why did you take so many? You’re not trying to hurt yourself, are you?”
“Wait a second, you took 8 yesterday and it wasn’t a problem for you, but tonight 4 is suddenly such an emergency that you called us?”
“Stop looking at the internet.”
