Crazy clinical day! [Nov. 21st, 2006|11:35 pm]
Recapp of clinical day 11/21/06. Well let me see how do I begin? I got to watch a bone marrow biopsy today and although it was a cool procedure to watch, it was difficult when the patient was in pain. It was the end of the procedure and the doctor was just putting the bandage on. I start to feel a little sick and was planning to sit down after everyone was finished. I was standing the whole time during this procedure, which took approximately 40mins or so. All of a sudden I have this dream, and I wake up to someone calling my name. The first thing that goes through my mind was what the hell am I doing in the hospital, I thought i was asleep! I was pretty much speechless. When I sat up I all of the sudden started shaking and had was hyperventilating. I didn't know what was going on so I started crying. My instructor ran in and told me to try to take slow deep breaths and try to calmn down. I was trying but my body was freaking out and had very little control over it. This made me freak out even more. I had a very unsteady gait and was a little weak and lethargic. I was helped in to a wheelchair and taken to the ER. My BP 110/60 (normal), HR 90 (normal), BS 147 (high). I'm guessing my blood sugar was high because of stress, because all I had in @ 5:30am was half a sandwich and had a few tiny sips of juice after I fainted at 10ish. So after all that they made me wait like an hour to get into the ER. They assessed me and everything. They discharged me in like 5mins, because they felt I didn't need a CT, or labs drawn. Which makes sense because I didn't really hit my head that hard, I actually hit it against the door so it saved my head. I was also breathing regularly and stopped shaking, I also didn't feel as lethargic. So after that I went back to clinical and went through post-conference. Apparently everyone was worried about me even my patient. What a day! It was so weird because this never happend to me before. Oh well I guess theres a first for everything.
