    Hey, if pts. rave about you months after they were under your care; I'd say you were doing something right

    Good show!

    I think you should go to Med school. Seriously.

    Oh, and the young part (he does this with you because you're young). Enjoy it while it lasts. We all get old and gray. And wrinkled. Even flabby, bald, and so on.

    Hey, in another solar system people might call you a self promotor or even overly proud.

    I'm a pre-nursing student. After reading your story I felt overwhelmed. In the short time that I have to train to be a nurse, will I be as knowledgeable as you? There were so many words and abbreviations I couldn't wrap my head around. I guess it just goes to show how much I have to learn.

    Very nice job! As an ER nurse though, I'm curious as to what her presenting complaint was and why if she was being sent to a cardiac floor she was not evaluated for arrythmia??? it IS possible that she went into a-fib suddenly (lol). Cardizem is the drug of choice, but dig is also acceptable in certain circumstances. This patient would never have left our ER without a full cardiac workup so just curious ..........
    thanks!

    dig is not ineffective, but rather effective in the management of chf, especially if CHF is as a result of A-Fib with RVR. the negative chronotropic and positive inotropic properties of this med helps wonderfully. Add lasix iv, and you have a good combo.
