Attention workaholic overachieving ED docs! We work 1/3 of our weekends and miss 1/3 of dinnertimes/bedtimes..so when school is out on a Thursday you must take your kids to the zoo/aquarium/park. And not feel guilty! New rule.

Thank you all for participating in this experiment in which old straight wealthy white men were placed in charge of absolutely everything. We are ending this trial early due to alarmingly poor outcomes.

You know what makes me appreciate my residents? Working a shift without them while they are at conference. Oof. 12 active patients at once, every one of whom needs something RIGHT NOW!

Glidescope tips during procedure lab: use off hand thumb to lift up tongue before introducing blade, pass tube directly parallel to scope (not from corner of the mouth), and don’t put the blade in too deep (no room to manipulate tip of tube)

Interesting discussion today in management conference regarding thresholds for treatment of elevated BP in ED. Who gets IV meds? What sx=emergency? What agent? How much should you lower? Should you start oral agents in the ED?
