Moyamoya is weird and very unfortunate. There really isn’t a treatment for it and the collateral circulation is a stroke waiting to happen.
That is exactly what we got called out for. Had some emboli that they went after.

A few months ago, I had a patient with moyamoya in my ED. Wasn't a stroke (this time) but that patient was transferred out pretty darned quickly to another facility that has more experience dealing with this. IIRC this one was found during a CT Angio study of the head and stuff moved along pretty quickly after that.

I've worked or been out of town for 23 out of the last 24 days. Today I left our medical bags at a rope rescue training and hit a column at one of the EDs (with the front of the truck while backing...).

This is my own damn fault and I am displeased with myself for not letting my brain get some rest. Stupid mistakes happen when you work yourself into stupid hours.

That sounds like an achievement that will live on forever in drivers training class...
Nah, it's pretty minor (scraped our buckstop bumper which is why we have them). There's pillars on both sides of the spot, so if you cut it too sharp trying to back up and turn the nose will hit.

But, it's bad to have to write this crap up when you're the ONLY probie at the whole place.

I don’t even know who that is. “SOAD” is as metal as I ever got. Saw them 2-3 times in their prime. I did enjoy some Serg Tankian in his prime.

my wife took me to Knotfest this summer.Coming from country western it was a difference. Apparently a fighting circle is a thing?

In the last few days I had a patient who was in a decent SVT. It was refractory to adenosine 6/12/12 and also to 10 of Dilt. However, thanks to a sudden call of nature (not mine), I was quite inspired and the patient's SVT was broken via vagal response. Yes, the patient was on monitor and I saw the conversion happen...

It’s 255am and I’ve been out on a 2 hour long wheelchair adventure.
