    Oh, and SI doesn't excuse overly dramatic behavior. I won't tolerate disruption of proper triage processes because of drama, regardless of the medical complaint in ANY situation.

    way out dated. i worked neuro-trama icu for 8 years and would find old fart doctors using it on occ. we had a 85 year old woman who lost her nipple using this approach. you are looking for a response to noxious stim. nailbed pressure with a pen is quite sufficient , even with this people leave the icu with bruises on nailbeds. try it on yourself, it hurts.
