Apparently the consultants are obsessed with ABPIs and the F1s have to do them all the time.
I'm doing vascular at the mo... If a patients is ours and has limbs, they get their life ABPI'ed up! I was trusted to go off and do one on my own this week (as part of a full clerking on a new patient) - hopefully a good sign!

That's strange... ours just get duplexed and/or angios.

-
anyway, in update to earlier in the week moan: I think the reg may have felt slightly guilty for being a witch all day weds as she offered to teach us sometime.

Our consultant was also kinda sweet on thurs and he's taken teaching us into his own hands in clinics. Apparently he never usually teaches students. He was telling the nurses that we were good students on friday (how fickle). Evil reg was off on friday and on consultant ward round, I was the only one who knew stuff about the patients, I think I made the SHO look like an idiot.. oh how the tables turn.

Why the hell did I think it was a good idea to go in tomorrow? I just can't face driving over there right now, have been up since 6 doing bloody regatta and want to sleep all day.
Although I like my current placement and am learning/doing lots more than I would in Addenbrooke's, I'm just getting fed up of the itinerant lifestyle, especially when you add in my regular trips to London - I've hardly spent any time in my own house recently, and am sick of living out of a suitcase and always having to pack to go somewhere else. *sulk*

Poster in H&R says they've taken about 37 paracetamol tablets & gets told things like (some have subsequently been removed by Mods):


Oh, if you go to A&E they'll just pump your stomach that's horrible and you'll do it anyway by being sick.
"Well you won't die but you will be very sick and feel horrible for a while"
"you should not waste A&E time it won't kill you. You will just vomit a lot and feel ****** for a while"
"there is no need for A&E unless you took about 47836945 doses"
"You should be ok, I have had around the same amount before and it just made me ill."
"Drink lots of fluids and make sure there is food in your stomach. The more you do this the more it will dilute it within your system and get it out quicker."



:mad:
:mad:
:mad:


I hope they have heeded recommendations to go to A&E - I think I can guarantee what the response from NHS direct would have been if they went for the phone them advice (!). & pleased I saw the thread & posted while they were still online.

Hmm, I think there needs to be an OD sticky (e.g. with the BNF info I posted which seems to answer most of the how much, what might happen, what treatment there is questions) & mods need to lock and refer to it.


If anyone hasn't done OD yet & wants the learning points of why I was so :mad: the BNF C&P post is here:

So I've been doing epidemiology for a few weeks now and I really don't see the point? Is it actually important? I feel bad though, I told myself that I'd attend every lecture so that I don't fall behind or get into bad habits, but epidemiology's so bloody stupid and pointless that I can't help but bunk it every time there's a lecture for it =[

True. But still..?!

(As in happens it wasn't someone going Anon or with a minimal post count or a troll like posting history, so I'm reasonably concerned about the impact idiotic advice could have had.)

the most scary is the ejit who says paracetamol works by the placebo effect and that they should know that it's not dangerous as their mum is a nurse and their dad makes paracetamol... Why have those posts not been removed (much in the same way their brain obviously has been )???

Try reporting some if you still can?

I went through loads (some of the choice quotes from above), but the Mod asked me not to 'report every single post in the thread' because they were dealing with it. I guess it was annoying for them but while the OP was still online & expressed concern about wasting A&E time (!) I felt quite strongly that things be got rid of.


& for future reference I think an accurate sticky might be the way forward, then any mod online who may or may not know anything about it themselves could just lock & refer? Helenia...

I suppose N-Acetyl Cysteine is an anti-placebo then.

Richards designed the physiology course that you're being taught, so, if you want to read the text that goes along with it, then you should use that one.
