“On this case, the guy had a sugar drawback,” Ryan Twp. Rescue Squad Chief Darrell Harris stated. A paramedic gave the patient glucose. The affected person’s blood sugar rose and he started feeling higher.
“Now he’s alert and the doctor stated he doesn’t have to return in, which saves him a hospital trip and a bill,” Harris stated.
Ryan Twp. is the first ambulance accepted to use glucometers in the Japanese Pennsylvania EMS Council that covers the counties of Schuylkill, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Berks.
