    just got back from the bright lights of glasgow to the leafy middle class middle england suburbia to find a collapsed teen outside my neighbours house.. never thought that the first time I help a collapsed drunk would be here!

    I've actually never seen someone so drunk they're in that state, and that really is saying something. she was collapsed and shaking and completely unconscious.

    Got to take blood for the first time today, felt like a real doctor! (Please don't burst my bubble) And also had my blood taken from someone who'd never done it before. Slightly nerve-wracking. But all worked out!

    Ah I was the first volunteer.. I'm pretty chillax though I kind of just stuck both my arms out and was like "knock yourself out guys"

    I found it fun too

    But on the subject of physiology; I was doing a lap chole this morning. Everything happened as textbook; the tube displaced as the intra-abdominal pressure increased, we saw the tidal volume decrease in real time (we were on pressure control) with an associated drop in EtCO2, we watched the cardiac output increase briefly as the abdominal veins were compressed and then fall slightly below normal with the drop in preload and there was some bradycardia with parasympathetic vagal stimulation. And we did some stuff about it.
    And I actually understood some of that. Which is nice considering the exams on resp, cardio and renal start monday.

    See I should be studying (I have a mock exam I am supposed to do tomorrow) but I really cannot be bothered.

    Im no superman up to you on the dissection one, personally as I loathed my dissection experiences I wouldn't do it myself.

    I am teaching kids from deprived backgrounds for a few weeks this summer. With my accent I am going to get crucified.

    Yeah it is. Well what would you prefer, I couldn't think of a good word, I admit It is probably a poor choice of word. I wouldn't dream of saying it at the school. I get enough in the ear for being privately educated without giving myself more grief.

    Yes I wasn't particularly thinking, it was a morning stupid post.

    Nah don't worry about it, I need to be picked up on it or I go too far. I worry that at some point I will end up as one of those people. I know how easy it is. I have friends just like it.

    Ps. City acadamy. If you are there I am the team lead

    What is TMDU? I think I am being thick...

    Well if you don't want them...

    I'm sure I'll do plenty when I'll be procrastinating from revising...

    I know!

    Went on facebook to take a break from cramming, saw this on my homepage and ended up spending a good 10 minutes reading through them all. I actually won't forget some of the stuff now!

    The thing with medicine is that you can never be completely finished with revision so be happy with that thought You can only do as much as you can and hope for the best!

    So glad my exams are over, haven't had a chance to relax yet though. I stupidly self-proposed an SSC and effectively volunteered to learn everything about obs&gyn in 5 weeks at the same time as trying to organize my elective in paediatrics (another subject I know next to nothing about, otitis media??)

    Good luck everyone in your exams though

    Also are the plaques Kaposi's sarcoma?

    (Am I a bad person for thinking that when it comes to the Armed Forces? )
