    I had to take a patient down for a scan today because there were no nurses that could go down and no porters!

    How do you know that??(!)

    Btw does anyone know a good method (or online resource) for examining dermatomes (ie which points to assess down the arm/leg) - everyone seems to do it different ways; for instance, do you test behind the knee/posterior leg to assess S2?
    Independently from two people horizontally marking separate questions for NET

    As for dermatomes, I've always done about a hands width above the back of the knee for S2 - so long as you are somewhere in the midline from achilles to about 5cm below the arseline, you should be right...

    Would love to know if the 1:1 NWTFS rumour is true...

    The 1:1 rumour? :confused:
    The one I heard was that so many people panicked after last year's disaster in NWTFS that very few outsiders applied there, so there's roughly 1:1 applicantslaces this year. Swings and roundabouts.

    My Mum has made a "healthy" cake for the diabetics in the family. It is made with low fat marge and some crappy fake sugar stuff. She has just now made me decorate it with about a tonne of crystallised fruit, stuck on with apricot jam. :rolleyes: Besides, I know my Dad will have some of the healthy one, and then decide he needs to try the real one (which I've just marzipanned and will be icing later) anyway.

    I've bought sugar-free cakes before, and they were actually pretty good and I couldn't really tell the difference. Never tried making one though!

    Stupid rumour mill, its like applying to medschool all over again, I may as well put money on cards. Of course, before then I have to think about what I want before I have a good whinge about not being able to get it.

    Crud, i think i've got a LRTI, spent all yesterday in bed hacking away. Today I get SOB walking less than 20m, bringing up lots of mucoprurulent sputum and have an audible wheeze.

    Still waiting to get a ring back from the OOH GP, because there is no way I'm going into work tail between my legs, no matter how ill i feel

    woe is me
