I was told by a Miller-3-only user today that curved blade users were p__sies. Is this true? If so, what other anesthesia techniques call into question the practitioner's masculinity? Fanny packs? Wearing gowns in chilly rooms? What about those facemasks with eyeshields?

I was so distraught by this comment, I bought a can of Copenhagen on the way home.

Remember - anyone can muscle it in with a straight blade - it takes skill and finesse to use a curved blade. :D

Wrapping yourself in a warm blanket because you're "chilly" after being in a room for 30 minutes :D

I'd say wearing gloves is pretty wimpy.

Real men use their bare hands and contract every sort of disease along the way!

Remember, they (blades not their users) are all tools, pick the right tool for the right job- I PREFER a certain blade for most "routine" intubations but like to think I am facile enough with most of them to use the right one given the situation I am presented with.

As far as any other practices that call manhood into question, I once worked with a guy who would wrap a blanket around his waist, take the bair hugger hose and stuff it down the blanket and turn it on- had to be one of the pansiest things I've ever seen. Meanwhile the pt under GA is freaking blue from equilibrating with the ambient temperature!

The last guy that told me that something I used was for p*ssies went home with his teeth in his hands.

Wait, I thought we were past the point where it was considered masculine to stuff carcinogenic wads in one's mouth because one is too weak to avoid chemical dependencies brought on by wussing out to peer pressure.

:)

WRT fanny packs, I have it on good authority that these will be all the rage in the future:

D*mn fanny packs. We have to check out fanny packs from pharmacy to get our drugs for intubations on the floor. After hours, the fanny packs are in the pyxis.

Ambu bags are for p*ssies, mouth to tube ventilation really gives you better control of tidal volumes anyway.

Really - in the pyxis???? That seems obsessive even for pharmacy which is an obsessive department. What's in those fanny packs??

I hate to think what might be in them when they're returned to pyxis after being used :eek:

anesthesia machines are for tards,

I just splash sevo on an O.R. towel and hold it over the patients mouth. Night night.


Monitors...same deal.

I shove my fist down the esophagus and feel the heart beat, the temperature, and the ventilation. I can also squeeze the aorta/IVC from there to alter hemodynamics. So yah, IV's are for jerkoffs too.

You need gas? Weenie! A quick karate chop in the right spot is all it should take.

You actually TOUCH the patient? I just scare the **** out them in pre-op to the point that they demand to have the procedure awake! "None of that dangerous poison for me!" The heart transplants work out better when Mola Ram is the surgeon.

You guys SEE the patients, what a bunch of turds. I announce to the surgeons that they will be taking care of both sides of the curtain while I chat up their girlfriends in the lounge.

You guys even bother to TALK to the surgeons? Weak sauce. My surgeons already know -- without being told -- that they will be taking care of both sides of the curtain... that is, if they want their girlfriends back from me after work.

Wearing your stethoscope around your neck. Personal pet peeve. It's just lame.
Where do you keep your stethoscope? Just curious.

I fold it up and put it in the back pocket of my scrubs. Some people have those waist clips, but I'm not sure where to get those, and I'm not sure if I like them. I can't really justify why its wrong to wear around your neck. But a high proportion of med students, when compared to residents or attendings, tend to do that, and I guess that's it.
cause it falls into the pts face, into sterile fields, gets in the way when your intubating, etc. As a result you're taking it off and leaving it all over the place.

I leave the damn thing in the OR, where I'll need it the most. If the pt is lighting up my radar or has a pulm/cardiac hx I'll grab someone's stethoscope in the preop area.
