Day Glow

Paint splatter, about half way through the night.

The Day Glow Tour recently rolled through town on a night I happened to be working.  Starting at about 8pm, literally every 10 minutes an ambulance would bring in some teenage kid completely passed out and covered in vomit. At one point we had 14 kids in the ED (let me tell you, the ED smelled great), several of them intubated. What made me laugh about the whole thing was initially the kids started off in pristine white clothes, but as the night wore on, they come in more and more progressively covered by the neon paints, until at the end of the night they were mostly covered head to toe. With so many kids, their pals as well, the it looked like the after party was being held in our ED.

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.
