Driving home from synagogue tonight, one of my medic classmates texted me. "just had a great code, 6 or 7 different rhythms, complicated as hell"
I've been out of school for about a year now, and it's funny - a bunch of us "baby medics" talk amongst ourselves whenever we have a "good" call. Part of it goes back to our conversation before class started every day, where we'd talk about what we'd seen in clinical that was interesting. I learned a variety of things from those conversations, including WHY a certain command doc hates Fentanyl. Anyway, I think there are 5 or 6 of us that will make it a point to share our experiences with each other after a really "good" or really "bad" call. We usually learn from it, and we are often the only ones that UNDERSTAND the excitement of having that "cool" call, as many of the old-head medics have seen it all already.
Anyway - I gotta get back to moving. I'm moving across the hall in the apartment, to a room with a WINDOW!
