    Awesome. Did you do the anesthesia?

    Don't forget about Hippa.

    "The recipient was not shown a picture of the donor, and in animal experiments, 'the recipient never looks like the donor,' especially when the injuries are so severe, Siemionow said."

    i overheard a surgeon yesterday saying that it's a requirement that the recipient transplant be made to resemble the donor as close as possible. any validity to this? also, kinda creepy if i was the family of the donor, seeing someone walk around that was once deceased.

    Strictly rumor, but I heard an SRNA/CRNA team did the transplant anesthesia. A resident was doing the harvest. Breaks my heart to think that this is true, it is a sad day for my program, a sad day indeed if it is true.
