A routine transport, patient was concious and stable.  Almost there, 5 minutes out, the patient yells to the nurse "Am I gonna be alright?"  Nurse smiles and replies "Yeah! 5 minutes, (shows open hand for number 5) I'll give you some medicine, you will feel fine."


Except the patient actually asked "Am I gonna die?"  Yeah! 5 minutes....  After the flight the nurse is saying, He was doing great, next thing I know he freaking out, vitals all over the place.  In the commotion the medic couldnt tell him what had happend until after they got inside.  


The nurse's nickname from then on was 5 Minutes.
