- Dec 29, '12 by daviestigsHey there.
Just hang in there - I went straight into ICU fresh out of varsity. It was quite rough, but there is always someone wiser and more experienced that you can ask for advice or assistance.
Stick to the basics and don't be shy to ask for help.
All the best:-)

I'm glad for this thread!!icufaq's.org....a great resource. Yes everyone feel overwhelmed and it will take time....so you drew the lab wrong....thank goodness you didn't treat that sugar. It takes about a year. Actually, it is harder in a small hospital because your resources are small. Take a deep breath and think it out before acting...have faith you'll get there......Good Luck!!!!
