@mari: that they do! pero mahirap din kasi pila-pila rin pala dito. :) parang PGH!

@bonemd: self-ambu bagging is a sight all too common in the med wards. nakakalungkot talaga.

@meloinks: mas british kesa american, but they use harrison's as well, so may kuwenta naman ang libro ko dito. :)

hi koalabear. :-) hi doc claire. and you didn't mention their accent yet. how does the ill speak in OZ English?

do the aussies follow american guidelines?

you know, hearing the stories of my Pinoy friends abroad, they tend to count their blessings and tell the natives, "you ain't seein' nothin' yet."

and you're no exception.

Geez, that scenario of our SD beds patients in med ward doing the self ambubag-ging, makes me sick.

I guess in our country the only ones who are lucky are those in power that haven't experienced the poor man's crisis.

Keep learning Doc!

@rlbates: thanks! :)

@manggy: you said it! it was good training, but it was also frustrating to know what to do but have no funds to do what had to be done.

This post left me both laughing and heartbroken, Dr. Claire. I can just imagine your amazement-- an emotion I look forward to being too familiar with, with any luck (cross my fingers!). We are fortunate to be trained so well back in PGH, that it somewhat makes up for the lack of resources, but I keep thinking about all those patients who could have been saved had the results come in faster/ meds were available/ we were better at avoiding nosocomial infections, etc.



Very nicely said.
