When the paramedics arrived they noted that he was on the ground and his blood pressure was noted to be only 40/20 initially and he got a 350 cc fluid bolus and he was placed in Trendelenburg position and his blood pressure recheck showed 96/56.

this is an ESL doc and I think she said Trendlenberg position, at least all of the syllables for it are there! this would be an appropriate treatment, right?

It's used to treat shock, so highly possible. (nm)
