The 5th Annual Creighton EMS Competition was held on November 19.

Twenty-one teams from three states competed—9 ALS teams and 12 BLS teams—with six student teams from Creighton University. More than 100 judges, volunteers and victims were involved in the event.

This year's scenario involved a bar fight with seven patients. One patient was asthmatic and another had a radial fx. In a corner by a pool table was a male with a sucking chest wound caused by a pool cue and another with a closed-head injury and epidural bleed.

After five minutes, the police department brought in a bath salts overdose and an alcoholic diabetic with a blood sugar of 27 appeared at eight minutes.
