another one of those “smite-me-on-the-spot-PLEASE” moments…
surgeon: a 49-year-old gentleman presents with severe epigastric pain. how do you investigate?
incompetent sem6 person(s): ultrasound? ogds? cxr? fbcrplfteverytestunderthesun?
surgeon: nooooooo…before all that?
incompetent sem6 person(s): (in a sudden rush of intelligence) ecg to rule out cardiac causes?
surgeon: (sinking back into chair visibly relieved) yes i did say 49-year-old gentleman!
sigh. how la to save lives like this?!
