Well it isn't too often that you have someone with an spo2 of 50 talking to you in full sentences, with no respiratory distress, or complaint of respiratory issues. (I confirmed that with a near perfect pleth and a second spo2 monitor on a different arm. I still don't believe it but it was real. (No cold extremities, good cap refill.))

I had an SpO2 of 69% do the same, just the other night. Granted that her baseline was a steady x2 and she did not make much sense, but -SOB & +full sentences.

Pulmonary Fibrosis patient? I have had some with insanely low saturations, even on ABG, and still pretty asymptomatic

This last week has been a roller coaster. Normal, to really terrible, to really stressful/sort of terrible, to anxious, to hopeful, to excellent in six days.

Let's not do it again, and I'm going to keep the excellent.

The Houston-area red shirt service is on a purge. Beware, applicants, people are getting terminated for extremely sketchy reasons. Extremely sketchy reasons.

Last Sat night after a very rough start, we’re finally slowing down at around 3am. BLS line goes off, a 28 M with anxiety. Everyone rolls their eyes, the run comes in, pt is being triaged, hilarity ensues.

Triage: “what’s wrong ?”
Pt: “I’ve decided to part with life.”
Triage: “do you have a plan ?”
Pt: “I’m allergic to peanuts, so I’ll just eat some peanuts.”

I am in a 100% brain fart mode, it’s my day 5/5. He says “peanuts”, I hear “penis” and am dying...

Is chat gone or just hiding somewhere?
Gone temporarily. (hopefully)

The new version of Xenforo, which is the platform the site uses, has completely different coding, so the old chat room no longer works.
