Another crazy clinical

I did my second 12-hour ER clinical on saturday. It was pretty normal, day-wise...though, a bit more memorable than my first stint. I had a 6 year-old with chin and forehead lacerations (she was in a car that was t-boned) and covered in glass. We had a death there...she had a massive brain bleed. She came in with a blood pressure of 42/12 and required a femoral line. The night ended with a guy on blood thinners (and a recent surgery) with blood everywhere. In other words, it was interesting.

Next up will be my ambulance rides. I think I'm going to try to stick with our local ambulance service (they're pretty busy). Should be interesting as well.
