This is interesting.
Tuesdays are slow in our GI lab. So the surgery center has requested to use our fifth room for lithotripsies on that day. I just did the first one this week.
It was actually really boring. You just sit there while they get 3,000 whacks from the lithotripsy machine on whatever side has the stone. Takes about 25 min. or so.
But it's interesting learning something new. Learning to read the x-rays and what not. Also, though this case was just a straight litho, quite a few of them are going to have stents placed. So I'll be learning all that.
Just thought I'd share.....
