If for any reason you needed medical attention you should have asked for sure. As I understand you now, I think I originally misunderstood actual need.If I recall that anything mistakenly said after requesting medical attention could be claimed to be under duress. ie I felt that medical attention was being denied until I said something...anything. BTW This advice was given to my by a family friend and Colonel in another Parish. I called him while I was waiting for the NOPD to arrive.
