You are on duty as an Intensive Care Paramedic in a busy urban station, manning a double-manned ambulance with a Paramedic colleague. At 1505 you receive a call to attend a child who is unwell.
On arrival at a suburban residence, you are met by Samantha, the mother of Jack. She is very upset, and pleads with you to help her child. She tells you that she is finding it hard to wake him, and that he wasn't like this earlier in the day.
