What a way to end the semester. Patient (not mine) coded while I was in the room with my classmate (whose patient it was), and watching staff swarm all over like bees and do their jobs was just an amazing experience. I cried, shook, laughed and am still on an adrenaline high from the whole thing. My instructor hopped up on the bed and did CPR and I just stood there in a corner and watched, hoping like heck that noone would notice me standing there and tell me to leave the room...it was incredible. Totally reaffirmed my decision to be a part of this profession.
Yes, the woman was brought back, and last I heard was in ICU complaining about the intubation tube.
God I love this.
Sorry for what could be construed as a pointless post...I just wanted to share.
