    Last year I didn't even realise refreshers had happened. We had a union night on the Friday when usually all we had was tables. Hopefully this years events people will pull their heads out their arses.

    Hopefully.. though obviously it won't be in the union so if they don't organise anything soon I reckon the union run event will flop and it'll just be some people going out to various places :unsure:

    Well I hope I will make some kind of miraculous recovery within the next week hopefully I should be at least walking by the time we get back. Apparently we are going out on the Monday lol

    Yeh I was pretty drunk to be honest, I was pretty pissed off I didn't get in actually :sigh:

    Yeh well either way we'll all probably go out a few times during the week, doesn't matter if the uni organises it or not really :dontknow:

    Tell me about it. I have more work than I've ever had in my life, but instead of actually doing it, I'm just pissing around procrastinating.

    At least there are still Double Stuff Oreos. I just ate 60% of the pack in like 5 minutes. Alone.

    I was just about to start revising, but now I'm too depressed. :ashamed2:

    So a guy I knew died of a PE a few weeks back but I only just found out about it. I didn't know him very well but he died at the tender age of 27 and was a very intelligent well spoken guy so it was a real shame.

    After the initial "that sucks" phase yesterday I'm not filled with the morbid curiosity of the medical student on how exactly you can die of a pulmonary embolism. He used to be quite a large guy and then lost quite a bit of weight. He never really did any exercise and was ill for about a week before so I understand he had quite a few risk factors for a clot to occur somewhere.

    However, the clot moves to the lungs and increases the pressure in the pulmonary arteries (presumably it gets stuck before it reaches the veins by getting jammed in the small arteries) and would diminish lung function but I don't see how that would kill you? People can live with one lung so I can't see how having a small section being messed up causing you to become hypoxic enough to kill you.

    So, does the build up of pressure cause the right ventricle to swell and fail? Would this then possibly tear/burst? Could the same happen to the great veins? The online articles on emedicine/wiki are pretty sketchy and vague so any help would be appreciated.
    As far as I remember, most of PE-related deaths occur within the first hour after the initial event, so most likely due to cardiogenic shock and/or severe acute hypoxaemia...

    I've decided to swallow my pride and ask my housemate's girlfriend to set me up with someone when I go back to uni.
    Just make sure they're not hairy and named Bob. ;D

    Yup... I know it's really mad.
    first term we've finished covering metabolism, enzymes and protein signalling.
    Second term is genetics.

    By the way our terms are only 8 weeks long.....
    Still 8 weeks of Metabolism and signalling pathways is intense.

    Surely they break it up with a miniscule of clinical stuff so you dont loose sight in what you are doing?

    apart from three two hour applied anatomy sessions, we've done no clinical stuff the whole term... It's a really theory science based course....
