Today we take a break from the Generics Act Bill and take a look at other topics in the medical profession.
For example, a lot of people know what surgeons do. But not a lot of people know exactly what it is that anesthesiologists or anaesthetists do. Like most of my colleagues, I take my job very, very seriously so it was to my great delight (and merriment !) that I came across this YouTube video, a lighthearted take on what is normally an intensely serious occupation.
I am having a little difficulty though because I am writing this post from the YouTube page and I do not know how to make a link or edit from there.
Anyway, this video is so true (hehe). I just hope my mentor during my fellowship, Dr. Ambrosio, will not see this clip because I remember she would not allow us to read newspapers or magazines while we were giving anesthesia. We were not even allowed to sit during the entire surgical procedure! (Oh, except for craniectomies and other such super lengthy operations...)
