    [–] What do you HIGHLY recommend? GibsonWich 2 points ago in AskReddit

    You can also sell the antlers as dog chew toys, my dogs are obsessed with them. They're a bit overpriced in stores so you could probably get a decent profit on them.

    Totally agree with you. It's a hard thing to convey to patients and even moreso their families.

    [–] Faith in humanity restored GibsonWich 13 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    Sometimes there are cases that are essentially hopeless i.e. Patients that won't survive or if they do, their will be miserable. Additionally, a lot of "life-saving" treatments come with severe complications that may make things worse. "Do no harm" also means withholding higher risk treatments with minimal or no chance of benefit.

    This guy's story is a time investment but an otherwise very low risk therapy. It's great that there was an excellent outcome, but sometimes letting a patient go is the better, more ethical choice.

    [–] Happy VD, fellas. GibsonWich 5 points ago in SpidermanPS4

    Regardless of status I encourage you to share your VD with those you love.

    [–] The best way to train surgeons may be to remove the stress of residency programs and make surgery a “hobby”. Under relaxed conditions outside a formal educational setting, 15 first-year medical students mastered microsurgical suturing and cutting skills in as little as five hour-long sessions.

    Hitting the nail on the head with your comment. Another challenge with the 60 year old teaching the 29 year old is expert bias - the longer you have a skill mastered, the harder it is to remember how challenging it was to learn it. The expert becomes more easily frustrated, and the learner can't focus on correct technique when their expert is saying "how many times do I have to teach you this!?"

    [–] What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand? GibsonWich 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Plus pregnant patients are wayyy more likely to have a difficult airway, acid reflux, and delayed emptying of stomach contents. The perfect storm for aspiration.

    [–] What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand? GibsonWich 13 points ago in AskReddit

    Clear liquids actually improve emptying of your stomach contents in that 2 hour period. Fatty, high volume meals take longer and make your stomach contents significantly more acidic, which is why 8 hours is recommended.

    [–] What's generally the dumbest thing you've done as a child? GibsonWich 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I took the plastic googly eyes off a t-shirt I was wearing at daycare and put one eye up each nostril. Had to tell the supervisor once I realized I couldn't get them out. They called my dad out of work and he came over to help with their removal. During the procedure I promptly sneezed blood all over his suit. I do not have the googly eyes in my nose anymore.

    Let’s be honest. No one has seen world 2 or 3 because of the warp secret in Level 1-2.

    [–] What used to be extra common in movies that you just don't see in movies anymore? GibsonWich 30 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah now it’s always “Meathook Sodomy” or “I Cum Blood.” We get it Cannibal Corpse, you have sex.

    [–] Sister’s dog just sat like this for 20 minutes. His back legs are fully functional, though the photo suggests otherwise. GibsonWich 3 points ago in WhatsWrongWithYourDog

    Yeah this boy is at risk for hip dysplasia as a pit bull but doesn’t show any signs of it other than this. The range of motion on his hips is ridiculous.

    [–] [Serious] Cancer survivors of Reddit, when did you first notice something was wrong? GibsonWich 48 points ago in AskReddit

    I had this reaction when I learned about fecal transplants for C. Diff infections.

    Nurse: “Doctor, he’s shitting uncontrollably and it’s killing his bowels.”

    Doctor, taking long drag on pipe: “Put someone else’s shit in his butt.”

    Nurse: “You cannot be-“


    [–] What is the strangest human interaction you've ever had? GibsonWich 1 points ago in AskReddit

    While working in the emergency department one night a guy came in whose chief complaint was a cough... yesterday. Said it was gone now. No other concerns. I explained to him that while I understand his concern, the ED is not really the place to be evaluated for a health issue like that, especially since it had resolved. He expressed understanding but did not get up. I left the room while the nurse gave him discharge information.

    An hours later the environmental services worker is trying to get in to clean the room. Mentions to me that the door is locked... but these doors don’t lock. I try it and the knob is functioning but the door won’t budge. I realize that I never saw the patient leave.

    Eventually get security who start slamming into the door with significant force. Finally starts to budge and we see that every bit of furniture was stacked against the door. Look in and the patient is trying to sleep wrapped in sheets from the bed. He sits up, apologizes, and helps us move stuff out of the way. Then just leaves the ED. So bizarre.

    [–] This keyboard... GibsonWich 8 points ago in CrappyDesign

    Nope... nursing and anesthesia keyboards. Super safe.

    [–] This keyboard... GibsonWich 97 points ago in CrappyDesign

    I work in healthcare and we have these keyboards on EVERY computer in the operating rooms! It’s infuriating to use.

    What isn’t pictured is on the number keypad there is a ‘00’ key where the normal zero should be, while the zero key is shifted one spot to the right. You’ll be typing a dose of medication in and it will be documented as 1000mg rather than 100mg. Drives me insane.
