ok guys...I am in my First Responder class and we all have a question...why are patients laid on their left side?

Seems no one has the answer. Our instructer hasn't a clue. When an EMT was asked his answer..."Because they told us to."

How are you?
I am a Firefighter/EMT and recent graduate from the Fire Academy at IRSC. I grew up making music and since I am still on the hunt for a fire job, I found myself inspired to make Firefighter Tribute Songs to honor this amazing industry. Here is a link to my website where you can hear and see my songs and videos. I hope you enjoy them.


Thank you and God bless.

your superior vena cava is on the right side of your heart, if you lay a patient on the right side the rest of the organs put stress on this part of the heart and restricts bloodflow. By putting the patient on the left side it leaves the vena cava stress free. Hope that helps
