Guess what I do post-call?

12 noon-1 pm: Meeting on the new computerized medical record system going up in the future. Lots of usability and workflow discussion.
2-4 pm: Hie on over to the Regenstein Library, (finally) get my sticker giving me borrowing privileges, and happily browse the collection.

Findings: a section composed of carillon and bell-ringing books (half in Dutch, a quarter in French, and the remainder in various other languages). Nothing I feel like lugging out at the moment, but I locate a CD of Elgar playing at Woolsey Hall and a CD containing the complete works of van den Gheyn. SCORE!.

Next stop: Crerar Library (sciences). Attempt unsuccessfully to find a book on Unix systems admin, but instead come across an online copy of TCP-IP networking essentials. However, do find a nice big chunk on the second floor devoted to pediatrics.

And I also get very excited when I find out that I have borrowing privileges at Northwestern and UIC. Yay!

4-5 pm: Hang out in the pediatric residency office laughing my butt off about how one of the chiefs plastered her desk with Post-It notes and checking in on a kid I transferred over to the ICU last night (and incidentally scaring the interns-soon-to-be-second-years). Muhahahaha.

Mad Lootz for the Day:
1. CD of Elgar playing in Woolsey
2. CD of the complete works of van den Gheyn
3. First Aid for the Pediatric Boards
4. Primary Care for Children with Genetic Conditions
5. Procedures for Primary Care Pediatricians.

And I have them for MONTHS!!!

On top of all that, I'm going bowling tonight!


Nerdily (and sleep-deprivedly) yours,

PS Anyone know of a company that binds dissertations? It's been 3 years, and I still haven't bound mine...

What was wrong with the kid who went to the ICU?

Pneumothorax. His lung had (literally) sprung a leak and was spilling air into the space between the lung and chest wall (where it has no way to escape). Makes it awfully hard (if not impossible) to breathe.

Ironic thing is that because of that increased pressure on the outside of the lung, it takes more pressure to inflate the lungs via the tube, which increases the chance of springing another leak elsewhere in the lung. Fun, isn't it?

First Aid for the Peds Boards -- is it any good? (As a way of studying for the In-Service exam, which comes up almost right as soon as I arrive. Guess I know what I'm doing with my time after graduation...)

You are not going to have no fun! You will do something other than move and study, darn it! Officiously yours, me.

Hah. Don't bother studying for the in-service intern year.

Everyone's guaranteed to do abysmally.

That's kind of the point. To track how one does over time.
