Here’s what you would say:
“EMRC, EMRC, this is Montgomery [unit name/number],
requesting a consult with [hospital name].”
Once you and hospital personnel are on the same talkgroup, say:
“I have a priority [#] patient with no medic on board. The patient
has taken three rounds of nitro, per protocol, but his pain relief is
short and he still ahs chest pain. He’s registered a 7 of 10 on the
pain scale and I’m requesting to give him more nitro until the
medic arrives.”
