I wasn't there Monday. Apparently one of the cardiac surgeons almost passed out during surgery. He said he felt weak and they rushed to get him a chair. He sat down and asked them to call one of his partners down to help until he was feeling better. Evidently they wheeled the patient's transport stretcher in the room and he laid down for a bit. And they used the blood pressure cuff to check his pressure. The other surgeon came down and helped for a bit at which point the surgeon got up, scrubbed again and finished the surgery. I doubt he even went to see his doctor.

Now I don't know if this is all true. I'm hearing it second hand. But i heard it from two people.

(BTW, he's a great surgeon)

It's all erroneous the thing you are saying.
