Finishing up orientation
I've been in a lot of classes, some interesting, some not. I've also had some very interesting patients. Like the patient who was brain dead but whom we couldn't 'pronounce' braindead because he was on 'innercool', a hose that brings his body temperature down to 33.0 celcius. I had a patient that we withdrew care on, and I got to watch her cardiac rhythm go from sinus to all sorts of arrhythmias to asystole. I do feel that for the most part I'm independent, and I have learned a million things and gotten SO much smarter in this short time. I'm going to nights for a week and then hopefully I'll be let loose to be on my own.
