"Hey, you okay?"

"Well, she's not breathing, but on the other hand, she's all blowed up and stuff, too."
Filler post. More floor-walking today.

I don't think the prognosis on that patient is very good.

Don't worry - she'll be ok once you find her arms and legs. Oh, and some eyes would be helpful too ...

The travel bag indicates she's getting out of the house every now and then, so at least she's not a shut-in...

For MY Red Cross CPR class they made us KNEEL on that hard vinyl tile floor and recite that, along with burping them and listening, and me with my dodgy knees.

Last year the clinic hired a team to come in and give the non-medical staff BCLS training. The MDs and RNs were invited to join in as a convenient way of getting our BCLS re-certs. (Leaving scheduling the ACLS part as an exercise for the student, but hey.) Turned out wires were crossed. Instructor starts his talk, and it's actually a "How to use an AED" class, and not BCLS at all.

So now we're stuck for an hour in this AED class, 'cause it'd be super rude to leave now. (Besides, one can almost always learn something.) About 30 minutes into it instructor finally says something about "putting on the pads" and the German MD next to me impatiently picks up the pads and sticks them on Annie. The instructor rounds on him and barks "Did I tell you to do that? I did not tell you to do that! How do you even know where to put the pads?"

German doc mutters "There are pictures on the pads, I am a cardiologist, and I have actual work to get back to." Awkward silence. And then we all moved away from him on that Group W bench there.

Wasn't this an episode of Third Watch?

Q. "What do you call a guy with no arms or legs?"

A. "Matt."

Class was fun and very well put together by Ambulance Driver.

It was a good class though the poor "Annies" have certainly seen better days! It was nice to meet you Ma'am - looking forward to next year!
