Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes.

Well it can lead to death (and often does), but death is not always permanent. 

V-tach, stable or unstable rhythm? What do y’all think? Some people out there say if the patient is conscious, you can consider it a stable rhythm. I’m not so sure about that. V-tach really ups my pucker factor.

In the next 2 weeks, I will have to take:

  • ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support)
  • PALS  (Pediatric Advanced Life Support)
  • NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation)
  • ALSO (Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics)
