thrills and bloody spills.

watched an intubation (Rapid Sequence Induction - RSI) being performed for the first time today, on a victim of an RTA. found it slightly scary and quite thrilling. was holding my breath until the doctor managed to insert the endotracheal tube correctly and the patient's O2 saturation started increasing again. think i hadn't completely understood the meaning of "sedate and paralyse" until i saw it for myself. and i had an epiphany. of sorts. we'll see how these revelations work out next time.

just had to record this day/date down.

boo, third week of posting is going, going, gone cos of the internal audit.
