Antique Road Show

So, there is this thing, that you do to your “friends” as a prank, when you are young and dumb and typically in college, called antiquing. Basically, when your friend is passed out drunk, you take a bag of flour, and for lack of a better way of expalining it, throw it in their face. Hilarious right? Cause they are all covered in flour, which makes them look old and…antique?

One of the patients we responded to during my EMS field time was for an unconscious patient who was not responsive. So we arrive on the scene and this middle aged lady is essential down and out in the middle of the living room. But, she is covered from head to waste in white, granular sugar. What the hell right? Apparently, the youngsters in the house knew she needed sugar, but had no idea how to get it into her. So essentially, they antiqued her with a bag of sugar. One person held open her mouth, the other heaved an open bag of sugar towards her face. Their thought being, that with some speed behind it, some was bound to get down her throat and into her stomach. A+ for effort.

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.
