OK, all psychiatrists know that grandiosity is a defence mechanism to protect oneself from their fears. Well, I’m terrified of failing my licensing exam, and I shamelessly admit that I am choosing GRANDIOSITY as a defence to get me through. Friends, I need all the support I can get here, so please like if you think I can pass this test!
L, thank you for telling me to tell myself to be Doctor Captain Awsome-Pants!
I love it. your pep talk today, inspired this poem.
This poem recounts medical algorithms and rules In The Style Of poetry
You know what’s coming up?
My practical exam
In all of med and surgery
It’s really time to cram
It’s not an easy one, this one
But I think I stand a chance
If I tell myself that I will be
Doctor Captain Awesome-Pants
It’s been long since I really did
Full head to toe exams
But I’m going to do my best that day
So here it is, my plan:
I won’t say: please call Trauma!
Right now! fast as can be!
Cuz who’s the trauma team, Wid?
Oh shoot! I guess it’s me
What types of bleeding are there?
I won’t forget, I won’t!
There’s bleeding you can see
And bleeding that you don’t
What shocks kill trauma patients?
Those that bleed or will obstruct
Compress, reduce, or tournequet
Chest tubes, X-rays conduct
Glasgow, Apgars, ABCs
I’ve got them to the letter
If you are bleeding on the ground
Think I can make it better
Looks like appendicitis
If I have a tiny doubt
I’ll call Gen Surg, my brave old friends
And they will take it out
Wid, please remember, say your name
And smile and wash your hands
Explain what you are thinking
On patients’ right must stand
In every case, do vitals
Inspect, palpate, percuss
And auscultate, and be polite
And get the patients’ trust
Whatever case scenario
Play cool for goodness sake
As Captain Doctor Awesome-Pants
This quiz? A piece of cake
