This is a long time ago! More than 24 years:The first IM shot:He was a cachectic old man dying of bony mets and he needed a pain shot. I just remember giving it in the vastus lateralis and hearing him moan when I stuck him. The instructor settled me and said, "you did fine, give the med now."Getting faint because an old ENT used chloroform for his anesthesia agent. The only time I got faint in the OR!First surgery I saw was a pneumonectomy, which is a surgery my dad had had. I also remember "getting" to hold a rectractor in an abdominal surgery. (Old Diploma grad.)Getting to see an autopsy. Lady had had an MI and blew out her LV. Remember that the pathologist disected the coronary artery until we found the clot, we could see the area of necrosis and we could see the blow out. Just how cool it was to see a baby being born.The horror of being a brand new student and having to ask people about their bowel habits.
