Quotes of the Day

“The dumbest kidney will always know more about potassium than the smartest intern”

Me: Sir, can you describe to me how your chest pain feels?

Man: “Like a fat chick sitting on my chest”

In other news, tonight could be an interesting shift. Word on the street is that the police are going to be clearing out the “occupiers” from city hall at 5pm tonight. I walk by it every day on the way to work, and its hard to tell how many true “occupiers” are left. The number of tents is down to about 2/3 of their peak, and frankly I suspect many of them are “occupied” by the homeless. Regardless, I should probably look up how to treat pepper spray.

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. Its a very nice Quote…the video is also very funny…Every man just have different way of explaining.This person is using the humour answer to the question.

  2. I work in a veterinary ED, as a nurse. This exchange came from a stressful late-swing shift, and made the day better.

    Me: “This dog was attacked by a VERY short raccoon.”
    Doctor: “… what?”
    Me: “The bite wounds are below the hocks. It was a REALLY short raccoon.”
    Other nurse: “Wait– no, there’s one above the knee, right here.”*points*
    Doctor: “Maybe it jumped.”

  3. More hilarity from the veterinary ED:
    Owner: “But you CAN’T over-dose on pot!!”
    Triage Nurse: “Ma’am, your 5.5 kg dog ate TWICE the medicinal marijuana dose prescribed to a 70kg adult human. Your dog is currently bradycardic, hypothermic, ataxic, and leaking urine all over the exam table.”
    Owner: “That never happens to me!”
    Triage nurse: “…”

    • haha, those are good. Sounds like you should write a blog….

      • My burning question is, Do humans leak urine after they consume massive amounts of marijuana???

        Granted, the dose for the above mentioned dog was impressively large, but even when the dose is less massive the dogs leak urine. Constantly. To the point where the leaking, the posture, and the bradycardia together act as red (green?) flag for pot tox cases in vet med emergency land.

        Own blog? Not so much. I *love* reading other people’s blogs, though!

      • I’ve never actually seen a pot overdose in the ED… nor actually ever heard of one coming in. In our toxicology class in med school, it was pretty much glanced over in one sentence…. “The cure for a marijuana overdose is a dark room and some french fries”.

      • When the ataxia and stupor wear off enough, all the dogs are HUNGRY HUNGRY HUNGRY. The net result is a slightly ataxic, urine scented, highly food motivated hungry-hungry-hippo. Since I do swings or overnights, most of the ones I see end up going home after an overnight stay. (They can leak pee all over the owners home, instead of all over the in-patient area or ICU, just fine.)

        I wonder if humans don’t OD like dogs because of metabolic differences and dose scales? Or more to the point, would a human even be able to consume the magnitude of pot without (a) becoming totally apathetic and falling alseep or (b)running out of money?

  4. This is a learn given by this quote that whenever you doesn’t got success then you never think that you are fail .your try of finding of the aim should be continuous.

  5. these are the nice and unforgetable memory of the mr.jedi.we really watch and enjoy your life style .
