Charts of information will haunt me FOREVER

Anesthesiology rotation. This is an important rotation. It is important to add this information to my medical knowledge, especially since I am going to be performing surgery in my future career. I remember learning pharmacology two years ago. Why didn’t this information stay in my brain. Local anesthetics, general anesthesia medication, volatile gases, nondepolarizing versus depolarizing agents. Fasiculations, what’s that? I really need this information to stick!

  • Drugs
  • Induction doses
  • Maintenance doses
  • Drug onset
  • Drug half-life
  • any other information that is IMPORTANT

 

It has been a long time since I had to make charts to remember drugs, but I guess it worked for pharmacology. Hopefully it will work for this rotation.

Monday morning is the beginning of something I have been waiting on for a very long time: The time that I no longer have to sit in a classroom and the beginning of 3rd year clinical rotations.

I have my stethoscope, panoptic ophthalmoscope, “Maxwell’s”, “Practical Guide to The Care of the Medical Patient” pocket book, black pens, pin light, different medical apps loaded on my iphone, and “Sanford’s Guide to Antibiotics”.  Should I pack a lunch, do I put snacks in my pockets, do I need a toy since I am going to be on peds? Many, many questions. Guess it will be trial by fire.

Class of 2014 let’s show them what we got!
