  2. Irregular heartbeat- curiosity
    Maybe- does sinus arrhythmia occur only during deep respiration? If normal respiration doesn't change a rhythm, but deep respiration regulates it- is that within the definition of a sinus arrhythmia?...

  3. The Circumcision Discussion
    ... Would you have your daughters labia removed? Some find that smaller or almost nonexistant labia "look better".

  4. Irregular heartbeat- curiosity
    I'm curious- an irregular rhythm that regulates with deep breathing- is this common for irregularities? Why/why not? What could this be? (This isn't asked to diagnose- not looking at a patient or...

  5. The Circumcision Discussion
    Sorry, but if I carry someone around in my womb for 9 months and then push or have them cut out of my body and am responsible for raising them for 18 years, you better damnwell believe that I'm going...

  8. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    Just another thought... In a widespread disaster scenario- NO ONE can be relied upon to be there in an emergency because no one knows who will be affected by the disaster/emergency. If a bomb goes...

    I guess the bottom line is that there are alot of people who hold both perspectives and neither is going to change the others mind. This doesn't make anyone "less of a (insert healthcare professional...

  10. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    Sorry, but I think you're off base. I know quite a few long standing nurses in a variety of areas of nursing and most are in agreement with the idea that family comes first. As it stands, 30% say...

  11. To those of you who have child care
    TraumaRUs- That's got to be great having family so close by. I grew up in a mining town and DH is a computer geek, so we had to move where the jobs were. *sigh* Dondie- One thing that you could...

  13. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    IMO there are ways that those trained in healthcare professions can help out HUGELY but independantly- not clocking hours at their place of employment. Just because I am not in support of mandatory...

  14. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    No- you are reading me wrong there. I am saying that if the options are between being forced to do something versus being given incentive to do something- it's more effective to give incentive.

  15. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    I entered my profession to help others. Not necessarily to serve them. There is, IMO, a large difference. Florence Nightingale did not have children she was responsible for while she was doing her...

  16. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    Yes- I'm just against forcing people to do things in these contexts on general principle. I tend to find that morale is higher and the job gets done much better/more efficiently/effectively when...

  17. Can nurses be forced to work during pandemic
    Hey- if "they" want to pay the astronomical costs for in-home childcare plus my salary in that situation? Sure- I'll probably do it. Otherwise- they can have my license because yes- my children are...

  20. Would you get the vaccine?
    Yeah- regardless of the point that "you can't catch the flu from the vaccine" I ALWAYS have gotten a flu after I get a vaccine, but NEVER get one (so far) when I don't. Odd coincidence- and not...

  23. Not letting my kid go to school
    I think you're grossly overreacting. From reports, Mexico has seen a hundred or so deaths, the US- one. Singular. Death. I think that if this thing mutates and we start seeing more deaths? OK- sure....
