Said at Inservice Tonight

We were discussing possible causes for sycope in paediatric patients:

NA: Could be cardiac. Maybe a congenital heart defect?
Lecturer: Yes, very good. Let’s define that word for anyone who doesn’t know it. For starters, it has nothing to do with the genitals. (collective giggle) This is your heart. Here I’ll make the left ventricle bigger so it’s anatomically correct. And here are the pacemakers.

Face palm. I used to wonder why people make fun of us for being “just BLS.”

I guess that answers that.

  1. >Sad isn't it. I'm not a Cardiologist But judging by the size and shape of the left ventricle in the picture, I'd say that "patient" definitely has some sort of congenital abnormality. so as bad as it is anatomically, they are kinda right 😉
