am more worried about these atypical presentations[unusual symptoms] of MI...like this one guy yesterday who came with an upper abdominal pain and when i did a fresh Ecg[high suspicion coz of age and associated diabetes] turned out to be angina.....this patient could have been easily neglected as a case of gastritis and put on wrong drugs...

2-road traffic accidents...being a tertiary centre you shoud be ready for this...being a MLC[medico legal case] u shd be extra cautious regarding documenting and handling the crowd...already 2 cases in my pocket today.....

6-help my colleagues-any respiratory case comes am expected to
this sums up my 1st day in casualty today...
best part is that you are your own BOSS..u can dictate terms..and also sometimes get to work with nice people :D

Happen to clean my study desk today after a long long time.....being a pen enthusiast i found out tht i own 6 parkers,1 pelikan,2 hero pens and 1 sheaffer (but lamy and reynolds are missing).....i usually prefer fountain pens and even today i don't mind the task of frequent cleaning and refilling of my pens(reason why many don't prefer ink pens these days).
But inspite of this my hand writing has become bad to worse :-D...(many of my prescriptions come back from
