New lease of life..
scenes from the OT
Today was my 3rd day of life as a new trainee in Anaesthesia.I am definitely happy here even though i haven't done much. In a way i was a bit shocked with this new life. Definitely less stressful and so easy going. My collegues are wonderful - everybody is helpful , from the MO's to the Consultants. Very very approachable people.
Advantages being in Anaesthesia
1.You work indoors - air conditioned guranteed. No more sweaty days!!( compared to most other disciplines - Government wards very warm oohh... )
2.The working hours are flexible. You work either 8am - 2pm or the 2pm to 6pm. A definite change from my usual routine.
3.You dont get to see patients with attitude problems - good for me ; less sarcasm.
4.U dont have to move around much - sit down and monitor.
5.Be very skillful in clinical skills.
6.Specialists are always around for consultation. They are really-really nice.
7.If you're not oncall then the weekend is yours.
8. Nampak cool... hehehehehehe
1.Weight gain is sooooo much possible if i continue to eat breakfast and lunch everyday !!
2.When problem arises ; you have to be really good at handling it.
3.It can be boring when the surgical procedure is long - eg was today . I was in UROLOGY ROBOTICS and the process was SO SLOW.
I am not complaining however. I was told to tag aroundthis 2 weeks in all sorts of disciplines. I've masked and ventilated 4 patients and no problems so far. Insya-Allah it can only be better !!!
