Rush it


It was 3 am in the morning and I had one emergency caesarean to do for fetal distress. We were quite busy with 4 OTs running at that same time for various really dire emergencies.

"OT mana staff nurse ?" 12...

So i slowly walked to my OT to set up ; checking my machine and preparing my drugs before my patient arrives. With 4 OTs running and mine being the 5th , there are not many staff for me to work with..

"Mana monitor saya ? "
"Tu.. Dr... "
" Haaa... kita still pakai machine ni ke ? ni tahun berapa punya machine ?"
" Boleh Dr... Ot ni biasalah... " referring to OT 12 which is used mostly for LA eye cases..

It was the old green coloured monitor ; you know the 70's series using the sine/cosine waves osciloscopes...
Can't believe I am half way through year 2007.....
