Yeap, I did my first IM injection yesterday!! Isn't that cool?
In case you are wondering who was my first victim, haha it's my dad again.. :P No, I did not simply inject him for no reason la..
After his blood test came back, his Hep B antibody titre was a bit on the low side so he needed another booster shot.. So that's where I come in!! :P
Anyway I think it was much easier (and safer) than taking the blood sample haha.. Was a bit clumsy on filling the syrine tho, coz had absolutely no idea how to do it.. blek. But thanks to dad's guidance, I must say, it went pretty well! =)
Okay granted, IM injection is probably a walk in the park compared to the other stuff we are expected to know. But to me, who is doing relatively nothing these days, it is something alright.
This week I've been to the clinic twice and on both days, there were quite a lot of patients. Saw a few slightly unusual cases.
So here is this week's study list:
- Addisons' Disease
- Grades of Fever
- Types of Angina (esp Prinzmetal Angina)
- Marfan Syndrome
- Beta and Alpha receptors, agonists/antagonists
And nooo, I haven't finished studying the Diabetes chapter!! Been procastinating the whole week! oops.. dunno why but I don't have any 'oomph' these few days. >.<
Okay okay tmr I will study ahhh... *sound fades away*
Time to sleep! tataz~
Countdown: 1 more week! This week passed relatively fast somehow. Even tho didn't do anything remotely useful =/
