The other day, I shadowed an anesthesiologist in the OR. The first case arrived. She was a four yr old little girl getting her tonsils removed. I don't know what went wrong with me, but as soon as she was anesthetized, I felt like I was going to pass out or worse !! The surgeon hadn't even began, and I had to put my head between my knees and sit down. I see blood all the time because I work in CT/MRI and I've seen worse when shadowing an IR. I think the main reason was that she is a child and I am a mother. Has anyone else ever experienced this or am I just freaking out???
