So I’m cleaning my room and I found two trauma shears. No idea how I got one of them. The other one I got from my little ceaser’s job right before I started EMT school. They were just laying on a table. No one knew why they were there and they weren’t part of the first aid kit so I just took them.

Cleaned out the training equipment room today. Discovered eleventy million ET tubes and a box of IV start kits that expired 11 years ago. A LP12 that didn’t have capno, 12 lead or NIBP but DID have actual paddles. Also an old Plano 747 chock full of old laryngoscopes from the old ALS practical exams. The treasures we find.

I wrote a short story about a girl on the run at the start of WW III, Los Angeles. Tanks rounding up hostages to shoot so the general public knows who's in charge. I'm rooting for you, Brittany!

Well the post office gave us our neighbor's mail today and we have been unable to locate our mail. I have Informed Delivery set up, so I can see what we were supposed to get today, which is nothing important... except for what looks like an EIP card.

you want to know the motivation behind it?

its a rebuttal to any moderator thats ever stormed into a thread and demanded that a free floating discussion that was still within the rules be brought "bank on topic". so i started this thread that has no topic. you could post up the ingrediant list to a random package selected from your cupboard and it would be perfectly relevant. there is no conceivable way this thread could be off topic.

so anyway, could everybody please post one of the following in this thread:

shoe size
last digit of your license plate
diagonal dimension of your primary television
your favorite carbonated beverage
your preferance between the simpsons and family guy
I'd reply in detail, but then I would be "on topic".

Funny you should mention that. The letter carrier just drove by. I got an old clarinet from Shopgoodwill.com.

Sometimes I have trouble reading your guy’s posts. Damn nurses and their smart brains.

Waaah! Look at me and all of my fancy education and knowledge, waaaah!...
In my opinion, pediatric specialists tend to make waaay too much out of how different and more complex peds are than adults. Yes, there are important anatomic and physiologic and developmental differences that must be acknowledged. But no, the basic principles of physiology and pharmacology are not any different, and gaining competence and confidence with peds is something that any good clinician can do within their specialty.

I like to say "peds are just little adults" as a counter to the idea that medicine for kids is super different and way harder than it is for adults, and also just because it tends to trigger the ped-specialist folks. :)

I’m never going to take any medical statement personally from someone who argued that we don’t use NMBAs when treating pulmonary hypertensive crisis.

Haha, shrewd.

I do agree with most clinicians being capable of becoming comfortable with pediatrics...within the confines of their respective position.

I’m definitely not a specialist though.

Due to the hospital ****ing up, what should have been an hour long run turned into an almost four hour one because we were sent to the wrong facility.

Not yet, but I’m halfway done my shift so I might.

That moment when you post a mildly inappropriate Easter meme and a minister friend messages you to chew you out... someone hand me a chocolate bunny

Oh, and the pastor at the church service today basically preached against COVID-19 precautions

Aww dang, the boat we had a family snorkeling tour planned for for today broke down. We did manage to snag the last two tickets of another snorkel tour in town, but 2 instead of 3, so me and my sister will do that tomorrow, Mom will join Dad at the resort with the lazy river haha
