    I haven't seen the movie but it wouldn't be my first choice of venue: too cold, tables too narrow, the videocam feed back to the control desk…

    Or the only real positive of this venue might be the video set-up...
    The lighting would be a bit harsh though.

    :=|:-): (knowing that probably just a minority of us in this forum know off-hand exactly what you're talking about).

    A bean bag could help with the narrow OR table. ;)

    Likewise. Nothing says the opposite of "turn-on" like a cold, hard metal table that has people's body fluids dripping on it all day, and if you're really lucky, maybe a missing sharp hiding out to poke you in a soft, unsuspecting sensitive spot when you least expect it. Then again, you hear stories about people hooking up in the gross anatomy lab, and that's even less appealing, so....who knows.

    Do you do a pre-check when you're doing it in the OR?
    • Right Person
    • Right Procedure
    • Right Position
    • Consent
    • Duration
    • Aspiration Risk
    • Bloodwork/Labs

    I'd be worried if you had to document EBL afterwards...

    And who is going to do the equipment count when you're done?

    Yes. And don't forget to write your initials on the appropriate anatomy of the other person before you start--wouldn't want any mix ups.

    This is a teaching hospital, is it not? Have the med student retract as needed. And it's up to you if the resident can do the critical part, or just get exposure for you instead.

    Nah, no intubation for now. Might need to do an epidural about 37-40 weeks later.

    The problem with medical students is they're all book knowledge, little practical skills.

    Ick. That is bordering on offensive (not the picture so much but the idea of having sex with an anesthetized woman).

    Someone posted a drawing of an anesthetized woman in lithotomy with a comment about how it was perfect for sex. Several people complained (including me), so some of our Super Mods removed it.

    Is Natalie Portman involved in this hypothetical scenario? If so, all of the aforementioned concerns are quelled.

    Nothings included. But the guys on the plastics board probably can make someone look sort of like her.

    Perhaps. It was my assumption that they just didn't realize where the line was and they crossed it. There are a lot of people in medicine who don't understand this.

    Perhaps although not surprising. Medicine has superstar/good at everything types and socially awkward/spectrum disorder types. The majority fall somewhere in between. There is also an awful lot of immaturity, IMHO, amongst medical students which isn't surprising given the fact that most spent their college years studying rather than interacting with a wide variety of people in a variety of social and professional situations. So I am underwhelmed when we are engaging in some sassy salty sex talk here and someone doesn't realize that they've gone too far.

    I could be wrong and in light of the tragedy at UCSB, perhaps the user in question has issues with understanding sexual relations and the idea of consent.

    @Winged Scapula, do you have a special tray to order up for just such an occasion?

    Also how long do you anticipate room turnover will take afterwards?
