Mozzie talk

Had the best oncall last night…of my entire medical career. Was oncall in the operation theatre and I had only 3 cases, which wrapped up by 11ish pm ๐Ÿ˜‰ then it was rest time all the way…

I’m right now at HTAR klang to attend a talk about Dengue fever, I think the state ministry is freaking out because Selangor state has the highest amount of cases reported ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m gonna get ready to be bored. Postcall and I just wanna go out and play >.< thank goodness mr awesome dropped me here and we are hitting the gym after this ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

day 2 in the Operating theatre (OT)

that's falacoyo my darling sitting down like a good boy *ahem* being an anaesthetist. doesnt he really look the part?HMm too bad he's not very interested in it. if you take a good peek at the photo you would see a rather famous cardiothoracic surgeon in the red cap. It was an open heart surgerty for valve replacement. wow, really cool because we could get a very good view from our side of the table, and there's even a stool for people like me *blush*

so again, today my OT list finished early, out of the 3 listed patients, 2 couldnt make it for the op and the surgeons added in another case.. even that it finished by 11.30 am. i was left alone with nothing to do, waiting for the premedication round after 2pm. so i had breakfast/tea 3times. omg i could really get used to this kinda life…hehe 

in the end there was no need for premedication round and i hung around the various OTs til 5.30 pm because the open heart one was so interesting. the bypass machine was the heart/lung for the patient while the surgery was taking place.. wowwee. i tihnk im inspired. not to be a surgeon, just..inspired by the technology.

i have to read up on paediatric related anaesthesia tonight..AIH feeling lazy now how laa.

ps : have i mentioned that i love seeing falacoyo in scrubs..? so irresistable… *palpitations*

My job

For the next 24 hrs this is the environment I'm in. This pt nearly collapsed earlier. He responded to dopamine for a while but he's blod pressure is dropping again. So now he's on double inotropes, just added dobutamine.i don't think he will make it. Just counselled the family members.

After 12pm I'll start being oncall but in the other wards. Hopefully the patients are stable today.

the volcanoes halted everything

my parents were supposed to fly to frankfurt last night but the flight was cancelled due to the volcano ash cloud phenomenon… hmm. was post call and went to the airport to send my parents off but i feel quite happy that they came home with me, wasnt really ready to let them go. the flight's postpone till tomorrow, tentative. hopefully they get to fly tomorrow because they were so looking forward to the europe trip with my aunts/uncles.

and i was looking forward for my lv/chanel ^__^ ehehe too bad i cant tag along, taking such a long leave in the beginning of a posting is too stressful for me.

 

life is like that..im back in the wards, im in neuromedical now, and back to doing oncalls about 6 times a month. and it sucks, still havent gotten used to it.still feeling depressed pre-call.. but at least i have my parents and falah around.

 

need to go out more i think.

havent been meeting up with anyone else.

Tonight @ red zone

Another 3 hrs to go and I'm already so exhausted.a pt came brought in by ambulance from a car crash was unstable and had to be intubated,but not by me.there's some bleed in her brain and I just transferred/bagged her all the way up to the operation theatre.the nuerosurgeons are inserting an intracranial pressure monitor for her.

I'm waiting to go back down to resus.the only good thing that came out of this?taking another blue scrub top fr OT.

I'm starting to babble,it must be the time of the morning -__-

My brain needs some rest.

2010 thus far

My days are whizzing by in a blur again. It's my turn to do the HO roster from mid jan onwards.I'll have with me a schedule to fill,and a lot of people to please.

2010 started off with me being in the arms of the person I love, but without the people I adore.I didn't have my friends with me,no one made any solid plans.so I spent it with falah and his close friends.

I'm still working at a&e,the people here are nice,willing to teach and they remember u by name,from the first moment they get to know you.

Sometimes I get some mail from my friends who are in their final year(s) of med sch asking me what's important to know,well honestly… there isn't really anything specific per se,just today boss asked me what does peak flow depend on -__-

Eeek.sometimes I can't believe I'm in the middle of my 4th posting.am becoming more n more jaded.

Well,life goes on.

I've never regretted choosing this field,however much I whine about my job.I like what I do,at times I love it.but I just can't fall in love with the hours it requires and the expectations from me.Im just me,taught to heal..but still a human nevertheless.
