Day 2: I forgot to eat breakfast and lunch

Today was a more routine day.

I got to do two ECGs on my own. I got to give lots of puffers (including one to a TB query patient - awesome - hello n95 mask) and listen to lots of lungs.

Successfully accomplished my first ABG! Patient was completely obtunded, so that totally took the pressure off. ABG results yielded CO2 of 115, which obviously led into my setting up the bipap visions. This is a machine I had some practice with from school, but it was really good to see it in practice and set it up on a real patient. An hour later, I completely blew the follow up ABG. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

I attended two procedural sedations and helped do a cap gas on an absolutely adorable little boy.

Meals really did fall by the wayside today, until about 2 when I finally realized I was going to pass out, and I gave myself a little time out.

Back again tomorrow!
