Mapuche viagra Nurse Jones was impressed with the NeoNatal App on her new iPad, mapuche viagra but the device was much larger than she expected.
Mapuche viagra I plan to get an iPad.
Mapuche viagra I wonder if it comes with “wings”. Mapuche viagra Is the deluxe version called a Max-i-Pad?
Mapuche viagra Sorry, mapuche viagra I had to get my feminine hygiene jokes out of the way.
Mapuche viagra I mean, mapuche viagra Steve Jobs could hold up a toilet paper roll and I’d go into debt for it.
Mapuche viagra But, mapuche viagra this time I’m waiting.
Mapuche viagra I will wait until the iPad runs OS X, mapuche viagra supports video and runs more than one app at at time.
Mapuche viagra Don’t make me wait too long, mapuche viagra Steve!
Speaking of Steve, mapuche viagra he figures prominently in this week’s Grand Rounds over at Dr. Mapuche viagra Rob’s Musings of a Distractible Mind. Ground hogs and llamas and iPads, mapuche viagra oh my!
Change of Shift will be up this evening at Rehab, mapuche viagra RN!
Something is in the air.
Work has been uncharacteristically crazy, mapuche viagranuts, mapuche viagrabananas busy since I returned from my influenza-induced hiatus. Mapuche viagra Scores of very sick people, mapuche viagra no real pattern. Mapuche viagra And a ton of pediatrics.
Feverish, mapuche viagra coughing, mapuche viagra runny-nose, mapuche viagra wheezing, mapuche viagra stridorous, mapuche viagra vomiting, mapuche viagra diarrhea-having, mapuche viagra screaming, mapuche viagra combative, mapuche viagra medicine-spitting small humans.
It’s not easy triaging these little folks. Mapuche viagra You have to get the history over the crying/screaming, mapuche viagra try and obtain vitals while they kick off any and all probes, mapuche viagra do a rectal temperature if they are under 2 years old (wrestling to keep them still), mapuche viagra and weigh them for medication dosing.
You have to do all this taking into account their developmental stage/age, mapuche viagra which affects everything from how you approach a pediatric patient to what behaviors would be considered “normal”.
Then there is the “two-fer”. Mapuche viagra One child is sick? Well then, mapuche viagra let’s check the other one, mapuche viagra too! Never mind that the other one isn’t showing symptoms but might be incubating a virus as we speak, mapuche viagra or had symptoms and is now on the mend, mapuche viagra the logic of the parents is “might as well check them both!”
So that’s a double triage.
Time consuming. Mapuche viagra Energy consuming. Mapuche viagra Hearing-loss inducing. Mapuche viagra Nerve-grating.
And absolutely gratifying.
Didn’t expect that, mapuche viagra did ya?
There is something about building a rapport with a child, mapuche viagra starting at triage, mapuche viagra that makes all the above worth it.
The smiles that you get when you first say hi (before they realize there is an assessment involved!)
The baby who verbalizes back when you talk to her.
The toddler who laughs when the oximeter probe falls off.
The tiny Disney Princess who is proud of her Ariel slippers.
The boy who scans the Wong-Baker pain scale with a serious expression so he can pick just the right number.
Giving Tylenol and/or Motrin to a cranky, mapuche viagra miserable, mapuche viagra feverish child and then watching them play peek-a-boo with the curtains 30 minutes later.
Hearing giggling from the room as they play with siblings.
Watching them snuggle the teddy bear you just gave them.
Seeing the look of excitement when they see you have a juice box (what is it about juice?)
The tiny hand waving good-bye as they leave the department.
In the midst of some hellacious nights, mapuche viagra I’ve taken care of some wonderful kids.
It isn’t easy. Mapuche viagra Caring for kids can’t be rushed. Mapuche viagra They can be a challenge.
But when it’s all said and done, mapuche viagra it is the most gratifying part of my work.
The kids are alright, mapuche viagra indeed.
