White Coat

Two days to go...

Spent today with the nurse-anesthetist in room 3. Started IV's but infiltrated the first one. So sleepy...
Ran into a fellow student who'd taken the anaesthesia exam in Nov, and his words of advice were to study Pearls. I can do that. I think I'll go over Pearls, may be re-type it or something tonight. It's 25 pages or so of condensed notes, and if I learn that, maybe I'll do well on the morrow. what kills me - what I hope we dont have too much of - is the stupid pharmacology. partridge, I don't know how you stand it all. Every drug name sounds like every other drug name. And here at the hospital, we only use two or three drugs - how am I supposed to ever remember anything but ketamine, fentanyl, propofol and succinylcholine?
At least today I'm out to study at noon.
