BANGLE recipe

1-bangle mudde-bangle pieces with ragi mudde
2-bangleshake-bangle with milk
2-banglejuice-bangle with juice

various modes of suicidal methods u see among people here and get admitted in surgery.

During post duty rounds our prof asks an inpatient "how did u consume these bangle pieces?"...she answers calmly "with mudde saar",myself and a pg were literally rofl there.

back to surgery now after anaesthesia....this minor posting shd have been a good relaxing period for us after med but unluckily it turned out to be quite the opposite.Daily9am-2pm[!] OT work + night duties made it sickening.Now that the new pgs were there we even lost the chance to learn intubation[tracheal] which was the only productive thing[atleast we can do it in casualty] possible to learn in anaes.More over the profs inside OT every now and then used to monitor us asking some stupid unnecessary theory qns which made it even more depressing[really hate them!].We do got chances to give spinal anaesthesia but to be frank its of no use practically anywhere else[atleast in casualty].Only thing positive was that i could study for my entrance quite a bit.

out of 7 tries in giving spinal anaes i succeeded only in 3.way to emergency OT[hell to interns at night]

have been too lazy these days..not getting enough motivation or interest to do anything..all i do is sleep or waste time online.
Bunked anesthesia today...really hate it...may be that am[interns] are not getting to learn anything productive and all we do in that OT is monitor the patients[which any layman can do] or just stand there looking at paralyzed patients.Just 2 more days to go and then have surgery.
Watched King kong movie...really a jawbreaker movie with good story,terrific graphics.Best part was the last scene where Jack black just comments "Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast."!!

have been listening to this song recently and i just love of the few songs whose lyrics i really liked...laree choote from '140 ki last local" movie

Frost Nixon-4/5

Frost Nixon-A dramatic retelling of the post-Watergate television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former president Richard Nixon.
Simply loved it for its compelling storyline,great acting and for some fine direction[was selected as one of the best 10 movies of 2008 by AFI].....while watching it felt like am seeing an action movie.
I rated it 9/10 in imdb which it truly deserves.

my weekend

2 movies[frost nixon and race to witch mountain]+sleep[obvious]+good food and sms chatting with friends..tht sums up my weekend!

fresh intestine[ileum]...removed from a patient in emergency OT operated for perforation

Thursday, July 16, 2009

doc or mechanic?

this is my 4th day in anesthesia and am already bored of this short posting...whole day u just stand there in OT and look at the surgeons do their job.
We interns do get chances [for giving spinal etc] and exposure wise its really good but frankly i feel this field is not for me where the work is just mechanical[like monitoring patients,push iv inj] and is wholly dependent on the surgeons with whom u have to work with.Moreover i enjoy talking to people and want to get into a clinical side where the interaction with people is more personal and satisfactory[though radiology is still an option wide open;)].
So now i have atleast one option less for my pg!!...

thank u vyazz for the award..will be writing abt it in my next post:)

Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic
-Dale Carnegie

i absolutely agree with this quote and even follow it so some extent[not possible always]...when ever bored or down or uninterested this little thing really lifts me up and lets me enjoy wht i do...its just another way of seeing a glass half full instead of half empty.Some may think its just another quote by a philosopher but to really know it just try it out once and feel the difference...

p.s-down with ge[gastroenteritis-loose stools]..hope i may make it for night duty tonight
