    What exactly regarding the mechanism confuses you? I'm suspecting you haven't done much arachidonic acid-prostaglandin stuff yet?

    Look at the pathways of inflammation, and the factors/chemicals/things involved. Then look at which things correlate with what you're reading on wiki - ie which things is ibuprofen inhibiting. Also - COX *snigger*

    I've never felt like this, but there are some applicants in the main medical forum I just want to hit in the face.

    Have you seen that thread about how intense the medical degree is? I hope to God most of these are trolls.

    EDIT: I just noticed some of them have managed to leak into this forum. FUUUUUUUU

    I liked on call. Did my first abg and got it first tIme without the patient yelping.
    But I am so tired.

    I have a 1:30 hour commute with no accom. It has been exhausting the las 8 weeks.

    And next time is worse possibly...not living south of the river next year!
    My F2 let myself and another student practice ABG's on him.. I'm quite curious to see how much it actually hurts tbh. (I say this, yet I wouldn't practise subcut injections on myself. haha.

    Will be atleast an hour commute for me for my next rotation (Woolwich for Neuro and Psych), with no accomm. Will be a definite change from this, whereas I'd personally rather remain here all year!

    I enjoy the on calls too (sorry docs!), but didn't get to go on the one I planned to do yesterday evening because of some folks on our firm being rather competitive and not caring if someone else had planned to organise it first. Much rage.
    What do you do on call? Ours seem so boring, unfortunately!

    Nice. I'm going to have to work up to that sort of thing. I only started drinking whisky in the summer so my appreciation is limited to being able to differentiate between Dalwhinnie and Talisker.

    I'm not a Talisker fan, really. I much prefer Highland and Speyside malts. Which probably makes me a bit of a girl, but I think that's allowed. :p:

    My parents actually have a really nice Welsh whisky.

    Probably, it's the only Welsh whiskey I can think of. The bloke who started making it gave a talk about it at our school in a PSE lesson years back.
