>I’m sure that this is the typical knee jerk reaction of pretty much everyone after they match, the realization that in a few short weeks, you might be in the ICU, actually responsible for a patient. Or actually, many of them (gulp!)
Whats worse, is that my new program has no ER orientation month. On day one of intern year I may find myself in the ICU. Now I’m sure this realization would make anyone a little nervous, but in my case, I think I saw my last real patient on Feb 2nd or so. The last real inpatient I saw was before Christmas. So to say I’m going to be a little rusty, might be an understatement.
I know it will come back, that after a few days I’ll be in the basic swing of things, but until that happens, does anyone know of any secrets for brushing up on ICU basics? (Without actually having to read Harrisons?)
