After 4 weeks of med am totally bored,frustrated and fed up with it...apart from a docs job u also have to do that of an attender like report collection etc and on top of this we have[from this week] to do both icu and swine flu duty.Icu duty now has been extended for 12 hrs now[each shift] and apart from the work its the sound pollution[of ventilators,nurses etc] which irritates u the most and now days coz of too much work load have even lost interest in the cases i come across.Think i really need some stress management lessons right now and an appointment with docs at room 55
Next of batch students r surely gonna suffer with so many duties from the beginning itself.

1-n95 mask given to us during swine flu duty...and unluckily 4 of them[a whole family] just isolated here have been found positive for swine flu!!...

at 5am today[during my emergency duty] a patient walks in to the casualty and says that he is having loose stools and needs iv fluids[they just demand here].So when i asked him the frequency of the stools patient calmly replies back "150 times"!

a 2nd yr nursing student asks our pg during rounds "sir i want to know some systemic causes of Scissors?"(she meant to say Seizures)

1-Wolverine movie really rocks guys..had been to it with my pgs last week...dont miss it!!...

Sharks In Your Life

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.

So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price.

So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.

The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish. So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan? How Japanese managed to keep the fish fresh?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull, so we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving? Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and taste better….. The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a challenge.

If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are Conqueror.. You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive!

wtf moments

in the wards one patient attender comes to me and tells "doctor my husband's urine collection bag is full..wht shd i do?"...i just calmly replied back saying now whether shd i do the cleaning work also for her!!!...

in the morning post opd day when i confidently said to one of the pgs that i have done the work he had told me to do[ecg and xray] and pointed out my finger towards the patient he says "why are u pointing out in that direction when the patient is right in front of u"...actually wht had happened was there were 2 Anands in the wards and unfortunately i had done the investigations for the wrong person.

p.s-except cleaning and feeding the patients they make us do everything here[or atleast patients think we r here for tht sake]

On the first day of my medicine during night duty 2 interns were talking to each other saying that 2 patients went DAMA and they have to write their case sheets...i thought then that using DAMAR[heard it so] word is such a inhuman thing [since DAMAR is a slang word for dead in Kannada] to use for any patient that too among the public there.Later i came to know that DAMA is not DAMAR but acronym for Discharge Against Medical Advice..lol

p.s-one of my friends when told on the phone by a prof that give the patient DAMA replied back "dose sir??"!!!

happy weekend...today again an icu duty till 8pm!!:(...there goes my so called sunday.

life in med

this is my 2nd week in medicine and now i feel have quite well adjusted to my work...

on mondays i will be too busy as its opd day and on the same day after 4 will have emergency duty[till 4 in the morning]...this is one place where i really enjoy working...every case u come across here will be critical and hardly u get time to think on the spot there...from poisoning ,suicide cases to kidney,liver failure u get to see all sorts of cases and some times the patients input will be so high that u don't get beds for the patients and experience wise also u learn everything from a nurse job to that of a doc...
next day will be ur post opd day where the profs concerned see the cases and advice the pgs[its more of finding fault in what u have not done]...imagine one prof,2 assistant,7pgs and 3 interns going together for rounds...i just love this part and its when u get the feeling like a real doc...
on other days ur[read interns] just busy doing investigations and collection reports and writing discharge summaries....
overall i have started enjoyingmy work but unluckily my studies have really been affected.

p.s-one more night icu duty tomo.....so one more day of less sleep and more work....
