Hey Murph,
I'm sending you five suggested medical personnel on your private email right now. Four Docs and another CRNA to keep triggerfish company. Let me know how these suggestions work out.

Thanks Jim, I got your list. We are on the way to creating the largest database of dive loving health care professionals there is. (Well, slowly on our way). I like Kamala's phrase. What do you think about "Dive lucky...dive with a health care professional"? :P

NP - I like it!! Diving with a HC Professional is certainly lucky if you aren't one and just as lucky if you are one....Yep...it works!!! Of course you could also say

"Dive Safe...dive with a Health Care Professional" or

"If you can't get lucky dive safe...dive with a Health Care Professional"

or

"Dive Lucky and Safe...Dive with Health Care Professional".

or

"Dive Safe and Get Lucky...dive with a Health Care Professional"

You get the general idea. Hey aren't I supposed to be on a date someplace its 7pm on a Friday night???? Ciao for now....ww

"Dive Safe and Get Lucky...dive with a Health Care Professional"

i am indeed, babe.... a certified registered nurse anesthetist (crna). i also have a background in trauma (care...not cause!). so, like NP, i put folks to sleep for surgery/procedures. UNlike NP, i am NOT a physician, tho i have an MS in anesthesia nursing and was extensively trained to deliver all types of anesthetics. if mark and i worked together, he would be my attending anesthesiologist and is ultimately responsible for the case. and he would be damned lucky to have me.

Putting someone to sleep is not the tricky part. . . . :lol: And I see you are every bit as humble as other CRNAs I know. What is it that makes CRNAs so meek and unable to toot their own horn? Sniffing too much of your wares? :lol:

darlin' (you damn texans are gettin' to me),

the wake up is part of the package. and you're right...we ARE a humble lot!

seriously, tho...i prefer my environment to that of some of my fellow crnas in private practice. ours is a teaching hospital with WAY sick patients. i, for one, am glad to have people around me who know a whole lot more than me. and i hope to god i'm never so arrogant to forget that.

but murph would STILL be lucky to have me.

i give great block.

I'm sure you're right. Although, knowing Murph and with the posts I've seen from you, the OR might be a pretty wild place to be. :cool1: :dance: :wakawaka: :dance:

On a different note. Some of you will appreciate this:

You know it's going to be a bad day in the ER when...


You know it's going to be a bad day in the ER when...
You show up for work and notice bars have just been installed on all the windows
and there is now a metal detector at the hospital entrance.

The paramedics in the parking lot are all using mops to clean up their
ambulances and the EMTs are using a hose.

The off-going shift has a hard time keeping a straight face when giving report,
especially about Room 15.

Your first patient of the day insists there is no way that she can be pregnant.
She's crowning.

Your next five patients and their families all scream at you in different
languages, none of which you speak.

Your next patient screams at you in a language you do understand, but you can't
remember hearing that many obscenities strung together at once.

The intoxicated 250 Kg. transvestite in Room 15 keeps trying to get your home
phone number because you "are just too sweet."

Your next patient has maggots but isn't dead.

The hospital's attorney wants to talk to you but her secretary won't tell you
what it's about.

The hospital has a surprise disaster drill. You were the only one who wasn't
tipped off.

The Department is completely empty and one of the off-going shift says, "It's
been that way all night, hope you have a quiet day!"

No one remembered to buy coffee.

You have writers' cramp and still have 7 hours of the shift left.

The psychiatric patient who thinks he is Jesus was placed in the same room as
another patient who thinks he is Satan.

You get a subpoena for a lawsuit a on a patient that walked out of the
department against medical advice two years ago. You can only hope that is what
the attorney wants to talk about.

The Hospital Administrator left you a cryptic message about a news crew showing
up "sometime today to do a little filming, so everyone act natural."

In the middle of a disaster drill two real trauma patients present themselves.

The paramedics who offered to go out and pick up lunch (and coffee) just advised
over the radio they have witnessed a motor vehicle accident involving a transit
bus versus a minivan. "Stand by for update."

It's the first day for the new medical interns, paramedic and nursing students
all at the same time.

The paramedics tell you the patient you just received with a closed head injury,
flail chest, and positive belly tap is in "much better shape than the one still
being cut out of the minivan."

You hear there is an influenza epidemic traveling like wild fire through the
local convalescent homes.

The psychiatric patient's delusions are beginning to make sense.
