Medical Student’s Clinical Skills (Auckland Med Revue 2012).
'We shed some light on how to correctly examine a patient as a medical student'.
An incredibly accurate video into just how nerve-wracking and uncomfortable those first few years of medicine are while you develop your clinical examination skills.
I think everyone studying medicine can relate to the awkward introductions and consent, not to mention the difficulties in checking for respiratory rate…
I do have one favourite part though.
'What do you do for a job?'.
I have never had a $100 note to compare with before, so I just noticed how fucking huge it is!! Look how tiny the $5 is!! Mind blown.
Άϊντε γιάλα γιάλα

Goodnight ladies and gentlemons. Rough night. Early sleeping. Possibly.
Wait. … wait…
Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544.
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)
The umbilical cord has two arteries and one vein. The umbilcal vein transports blood rich in nutrients and oxigen from the placenta to the fetus.
The umbilical arteries return unoxigenated blood to the placenta to start again the cycle of O2 exchange.
Through the blood vessels in the umbilical cord that leaves the placenta, the fetus receives all the necessary nutrition, oxygen and life support from the mother.
There’s a new RMO on the antenatal ward, previous work in ICU. He looked at the sheet from handover and almost fainted when he saw how many antenates were suffering from “pulmonary embolism.” Context is very important: PE on an antenatal ward probably doesn’t stand for pulmonary embolism. (Hint: Starts with pre ends with eclampsia)
