A different kind of stupid!

We were called to a lady in her late forties having an asthma attack. We were called by her son.

When we got there she refused treatment and transport to hospital.


Because she was fasting for 'Ramadan'

Even her son and her husband couldn't understand her reasons behind this. Our treatment for asthma doesn't break any of the rules for Ramadan. She did however agree that if the problem was still happening at sunset 6:00pm, she would call us back. (At this point it could have been life threatening).

Unfortunately, I don't know the outcome.
