Repost: WTF #1

 

Borrowing the idea from White Coat, I proudly present WTF moment #1…

This patient we had was about to be intubated for respiratory failure.  As we pulled off the non rebreather, ready to sedate him,  he gathers all his wind and shouts  ” WAIT WAIT WAIT… is there any way I could have a mayonnaise and tomato sandwich first?”

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.
