Shout Outs

Nick Genes is hosting this week’s Grand Rounds at his blogborygmi tumblr.  You can read this week’s edition here.

Hello and welcome to this collection of medical links from across the web, written by providers, patients and analysts that work on the frontlines of modern healthcare.

This is my sixth time hosting Grand Rounds (three prior times on blogborygmi’s blogspot site, twice on Medgadget.com), and my first time with Tumblr.

I’ve been hearing about Tumblr for years, and after finally making the leap a few weeks back, I figured it might be a good fit for Grand Rounds today, as well. .….

@doctorblackbear who blog at Asystole is the Most Stable Rhythm has written a beautiful post: Trust

"So the patient has been temporarily paralyzed by the drugs, and you're the one keeping them alive by squeezing air into their lungs...but...no pressure".

Gulp. 

I was holding the mask as tightly against her face as I could, sealing the rubber to her cheeks in the effort to keep highly oxygenated air from leaking out. Looking down at her from the head of the bed I saw the patient from a different vantage point, a place that made her look so vulnerable.

And she was vulnerable.  …….

H/T to @antidoped who gave me the head’s up on @imapactednurse’s post:  1 shift, 3 stories

From Street Anatomy: A Woman’s Back is Beauty 

Edinburgh-based photographer Diana Eastman shot this gorgeous photograph overlayed with a classic anatomical illustration from what I believe is Grey’s Anatomy……..
