Finished With Neuroanesthesia As A CA-2 – Back To Obstetrics
I finished my CA-2 rotation in neuroanesthesia last week and am back on the labor and delivery (L&D) wing providing parturients with labor analgesia (epidurals, spinals, combined spinal-epidurals). This time, I’m a more senior resident and helping coordinate the overall work flow among the junior residents. Fortunately every single one of them was a BCM medical student too, so they already know me fairly well. 🙂
My first day on L&D was a call shift, and truth be told, I was a little uneasy how rusty my neuraxial procedural skills had become. Fortunately, I successfully placed all of my epidurals and spinals without assistance and with great analgesic results. We’ll see how that holds up in the coming weeks.
My days off have definitely been front-loaded this month, so I’ll have a long stretch of consecutive work days and calls shifts beginning next week. That being said, I’m trying to make the most of my time off by catching up on reading and writing fellowship personal statements.
My achievement for the weekend – finally being eligible for competitive matches in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and leading my team to victory in my first match ever. Witness the nerdiness.
Finally, Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s source code is being pushed to the Android Open Source Project tomorrow! Can’t wait to upgrade my developer preview to the official release on my Nexus 6. 🙂
