SCRUBS!

OMG SCRUBS!!


This week I went to Sir Charles Gairdener for clinical orientation. BASICALLY, observe what radiographers do for one whole week! BUT IT HAS BEEN FUN! i gotta take some x-rays by myself, like hands and wrists and fingers coz I haven't learnt much but I got taught some easy ones like feet and chest which I will be learnin later this semester!! I getta call the patient in, take their x-ray and upload em', get em' checkd by radiographer and send the patient back :D

TODAY I WENT INTO THEATRE AND SAW A SURGEON PUT IN A DYNAMIC HIP SCREW
IN THIS LADY!! HELL AWESOME!! THEY CUT HER LEG OPEN AND WIPED THE BLOOD AND HELD THE SKIN OPEN WITH SOME CLAMPS! AND STARTED DRILLIN THIS PLATE IN AND LATER THE SCREWS!! ^^ and then it was stitched up and ta daa new hips! The lady woke up halfway and was like
"What are you guys doing?"
Doc: "Oh we're just putting a screw into your bone"
Lady: "Oh I can feel the vibrations"

haha it was all very surreal and felt like something outta greys anatomy! I gotta wear teal scrubs weeee~~ i want a pair! and a shower cap and mask and lead apron and some neck thingo :) .. loads of fun.

Other things I've seen so far is CTs and Ultrasound and portable machines, pretty rad (ha.ha.)
