    Funny how he came rusing in, maybe when he cannulated the aorta he KNEW he had done something wrong. All I can say is.. you need a NURSE to save your life! Good job.

    Re: My patient is tamponading and death is at the door

    I had a CV Dr about 6 months ago yell at me over the phone for 10 minutes about why I called his answering service after 9pm "ANY RESPECTABLE FATHER WOULD BE HOME AT 9PM" instead of helping me with a simple order for some Levo or Neo, NOOO!!! He had to lecture me on "calling that poor little lady at the answering service and waking her up! I just want to know why...." DUDE, your fresh heart's BP is freaking 50/nothing. Shut up and give me an order. After 15 minutes, I finally got an order, hung up....kept the pt alive. (by the way the original phone call was at 10pm). At 2:30am, Dr smartypants called back, and said "Hey just checking how the pt was doing, and wanted to remind you about the full lunar eclipse tonight in about 30 mintes" OK 2 things: what the (*@#&$. and DUDE, I'm working on your stinking heart pt, I don't have time to go check on the moon!!!!! What the )@(#$!??
