I have been reading this book written by a nurse that lives in Canada and she has referred to the term: "He has pressure in the boots". I am unfamiliar with this term and have asked a few nurses about it, but all have said they have never heard the term before. The nurse that wrote the book is an ICU nurse. Is this an ICU term, a Canadian term, or what? If any of you know what it means, please advise.
His [blood] pressure is in his boots - it's very low.
Thanks for clarifying that for me Talaxandra. I knew someone would be able to enlighten me on it. Interesting that you're a Billy Bragg fan. So am I. Thanks again.
It's a term we use a lot here in the UK also, "his BP's in his boots" or if it's high we say "his BP's through the roof". It's only slang of course, we don't document it this way :chuckle
Hi CSimon - glad I could help! It's so annoying when there's this one niggling thing...
PS Billy Bragg is awesome :)
Interesting that you're a Billy Bragg fan. So am I. Thanks again.
(Isn't everyone a Billy Bragg fan????? :) )
Well, if they're not they should be!
Thanks to all of you that have responded!! My curiousity has been satisfied!! Yes, everyone should be a Billy Bragg fan, and if not a fan of him, at least a fan of Kirsty MacColl. That bit of work she and Billy did together was great!! I sure do miss her since her death. Thanks Again!!
Wow -- You're a Kirsty MacColl fan, too? I am, also -- only I didn't know she did anything with BB (I'll have to track that down).
