new residents

I showed my new residents how to put together an IV tubing setup today... they seemed extremely excited. i guess i take the easy things for granted.

Heard from a resident in the ICU

ECMO is easy, you just got to keep them from bleeding to death, and keep them from clotting to death.

(ECMO = Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation... more on ECMO another day... so complicated)

Dang that was a long time ago, I can't even remember what it was like to be that new. Have fun with the Newbies:)
