    Ok so i just did a couple weeks work experiance in a cardiovascular surgery, but i was worried about seeing all the blood etc.. I mean yeah ive seen it all on TV but i didn't know how would i react. In short, i was fine BUT there was one thing that really made me feel sick or weird, that was the smell of burning flesh and bones! :eek3: It was really odd. Normal or not?

    Something else that freaked me out is imaging the patient in surgery without all the green fabric... :eek3:

    I dont actually think that many people are squeamish about blood and needles? Possible because of repeated exposure to it on TV etc...???

    NB: Just realized my title was atrociously spelt, i apolagize for any grammatical/spelling errors in this post :P

    The smell thing is probably normal for first time exposure.
