i have noticed that the EM forum regularly has a large number of 'viewers' (currently there are 47 individuals perusing this forum right now). ive noticed that this is the case at all hours of the day too- other specialty forums will have 1-5, at the most 10 viewers, and the EM will have 30. what do you think it is? are sdn procrastinators unexplicably drawn to EM, or a increased interest in the specialty?

An increased interest. while we self perpetuate the ADD thing, you cant be ADD and keep track of 10-20 patients at a time.... anyways.. we rock others roll....
 
there are also quite a few viewers from the general public who like our things i learned from our pts thread.

EM is great, you have to love it.:love:
 
It's because we are soooooooo sexy.
 
EM does it better
 
I'm not a doctor or student but I do work in a hospital.
that said my husband worked as an emt for years and is now an lpn he loves working in the ed but now is in a clinic.
I look on this site because I now have a better understanding on what goes on in the ed and love you doctors more. I love your humor ( we have our in medical Imaging) plus it is very good reading and my husband loves reading it to.

Just want to put my 2 cents in we thank you all rock.
 
science teacher here- its funny (some threads are)- that's why- and answers the eternal question--'whatever happeded to whatshis name" -we can probably guess who you'll write about when we get them in 9th grade. fortunately i moveed up the feeding chain and teach older students.

BTW: holiday humor: granddaughter (age 9) asked when i was hanging the nematodes in the house. beat me for a while- until i realized she meant 'mistletoe' . thank god for spongebob and his crew.

ya'll have a good holiday, now.
 
A few years ago some of the more viewed threads got linked on some very popular, high traffic, non-medical web sites and the traffic increased to the point where the servers began to bog down. I heard that some of those links were disabled but that's why we get more traffic than the other forums.
 
Yep, a friend of mine sent me a link to the "Things I Learn..." thread. When I said I was on it, and that there were actually two of them, it was like I was a rock star for a day...
 
I'm a pharmacy student, but I read the ER forums for the "things my patients taught me" thread and other funny threads. I skip all the stuff that doesn't apply to me at all.
