A good day

 

 

Today just feakin rocked. Good patients, good flow, good laughs. Had a case of ace inhibitor induced angioedema so I got to break out our brand new naso-pharygeal laryngoscope and take it for a test spin. At one point, half the ED was gathered around watching Honey Badger and everyone was crying with laughter. And then we had a mass trauma roll in all at once. Van carrying 11 people got T-boned. It’s crazy when you see the whole ED mobilized at once in these situation, moving people around, making room, people barking out orders, trying to get lines and labs and films. Controlled chaos at its best. Definitely left work with a high today. Then to top it off… the walk home was absolutely stunning. The first blast of fall air hit the city sometime during my shift and it was cool and crisp out, and in one direction was a spectacular sunset, in the other a spectacular rainbow. Was the perfect end to great day.  (Pics don’t come close to doing it justice)

 

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.

  1. Spent a day of high drama saving lives and still aware enough to smell the roses on the way home. Impressive.
