For those who are interested in seeing an upcoming CNN documentary "Grady's Anatomy"
"Luis Tumialan, a fifth-year neurosurgery resident and his attending physician, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, will be seen consulting, making rounds and operating. Luis served in the Navy as a Specialist Operations Diving Medical Officer who would augment Navy SEAL platoons on missions in Southeast Asia. Dr. Tumialán will return to finish up his career in the Nav y once his residency training is completed. He will be seen pumping iron, giving his baby a bottle and then racing back to Grady to perform brain surgery with Dr. Gupta."
The name Sanjay Gupta was familiar, so I did a google search, and came up with this: http://www.cnn.com/CNN/anchors_reporters/gupta.sanjay.html
Interesting that their own medical correspondent is in the show...
Yes, Dr. Gupta is an Emory neurosurgeon and CNN's chief medical correspondent. I find him very charismatic and inspiring and I've been trying to shadow him forever but it's just not working. And BTW, he will be delivering a lecture that's open to the public at Emory in April and I plan on attending.
When is this airing? I tried to record it on my Tivo but nothing came up in my search
Sanjay is extraordinary! He is 10 doctors in 1 person Ouch! Did anybody watch his coverage in Iraq... while reporting he volunteered to take part in a surgery! It is either you look good and be dumb or you look crappy and be smart but never in my life have I seen both in one Human being(Sanjay).
Yeah...I cannot forget that report. He makes me proud to want to be a doc.
I cannot but chuckle at this one...but you have a good point.
The report says March 24 and 25 at 8pm and 11pm Eastern.
I once saw Sanjay fight off like 3 grizzly bears while closing a wound; all I could do was stare at his beautiful pearly whites.
Seriously though, he posts great reports. I wish news companies hired more people from the fields they are expected to cover.
So did any of you see the documentary (Grady's Anatomy)? If so, what do you think?
if you click on the "videos" part of the page you can see some of it.
It was alright, but the neurology resident was boring and annoying, I couldn't stand watching her.
I thought so too...but she said so herself at the beginning that it was gonna be boring following her around all day. But I felt bad for her that her relationship fell apart due to the demands of residency. That sucks real bad.
I think Robin was the most fun resident followed by Nii > Tamialan(sp?) > the neurology resident. I learned a lot though.
However, one thing struck me as odd...it didn't seem to bother the attendings (including Dr. Gupta) that the residents had to work those long, grueling hours. It seemed that they were more concerned about preventing "patient hand-overs" and ensuring sufficient clinical exposure. But what good does more exposure and more training do to you after you're physically and mentally exhausted? And like they stated in the report, when you're sleep-deprived that much you're no better than an alcoholic with a BAC (blood alcohol level) of 0.1 - well above the legal limit in most states?
I love the part where the girl says "and i thought things would get better after medical school, little did I know it gets worse". Why do residents work for $8 an hour again?
Crap, I only saw the end of it (when the ER was too full and more patients were coming in). Oh, and also that part with the guy coming off a 30 hour shift and being called right back! oh the fun of medicine!
Does anyone know if it will air again?
sanjay gupta is an actual practicing physician????
i feel bad for that hospital
it was interesting-nothing spectacular though. I never realized how much negative energy there is towards that 30 hour working limit-we're not machines people.
Yeah...he ended up working 34 or 36 hours straight. These kinds of stories are helping to prepare my mind for the challenges ahead.
I'm sure there's going to be a re-run sometime in the near future. If I come across it I will post or PM.
website says 3/31 at 3 pm ET and 4/1 at 2 pm ET
Sweet - thanks! I was bummed I missed it.
This was on all this weekend... i watched it twice... it wasn't much a shock to see what the residents were going through... but it was for my parents.
there's gotta be a DL link for this floating around somewhere...
It wasn't a shock for me either but everyone around me responded with "shock and awe." They didn't realize that doctors had to endure so much to get to where they are. And when I told them it's better now because residency pre-2003 (when the new law was passed) had residents working 100-hours or more in the hospital. They couldn't even fathom how that was possible.
