Rashes confuse me, don't interest me and down right scare me at times ... Especially in paeds. Consultant taught me just 2 things that matter clinically:
1. How well (or unwell) is the child? 
2. Describe the rash

If you're like me describing the rash will put fear into your soul. Another tip he gave me was there are 3 categories of rashes:
1. Vascular 
2. Vesicular 
3. Macular papular 
Causes of each are in the photo.  This has helped me so much this week with all the kiddies so thought I'd share .

Getting through this day with my @maevnuniforms EON scrubs and my @doctorinsole multistep insoles 💪🏼 Today we had a practice exam to prepare us for our End of Second Year Clinical Exam. We have 15 minutes to interview our patient, conduct a targeted physical exam, and discuss our impressions and management plan with the patient. We then we have 7 minutes to complete a write-up on our patient. Normally we do these exams on Standardized Patients, which are actors who have been trained to portray patients with certain ailments, and at the end, they give us feedback. But today, we got to be the patients for each other! It was sort of fun being able to memorize a script and get into character! It was really valuable to be able to discuss with another classmate what things went wrong and which ones went well. I spent the rest of the day cranking out some UWorld Questions and also took a walk and enjoyed some fresh air because it was 70 degrees in Boston today ☀️☀️☀️ What did you all do today?

Fresh new pair of lungs about to get transplanted!
Lungs are unique, they are spongy, air-filled, and are the primary organs of respiration. There are many end-stage pulmonary diseases that necessitates lung transplantation, either partially or totally. Common reasons for lung transplantation are COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, and the list goes on. Transplantations aren't extremely common simply due to the small number of donor organs available, making the waiting list longer and longer. During a double-lung transplant, patient is hooked up to a heart-lung machine. Surgery starts from an incision made under the patient's armpit, around to the sternum, and then back towards the other armpit (clamshell incision). In the case of a sequential transplant the recipients lung with the poorest lung functions is collapsed, the blood vessels tied off, and cut at the corresponding bronchi. The new lung is then placed and the blood vessels reattached. To make sure the lung is satisfactory before transplanting the other, a bronchoscopy is performed.

Some days you need a little afternoon pick me up! On call in the NICU today and have a full afternoon and night ahead of me. I never know what is in store for me as you can get no calls or admit 5 premies. 
_______

We have two MS4 med students rotating with us in NICU and they both were talking about submitting their rank order list. I cannot believe match day is less than a month away! I remember when I was in their shoes and was so nervous. However, the majority of students will match in one of their top 3 choices. At this point, my best advice is to enjoy 4th year and try to relax. Please plan a fun trip or spend your free time with loved ones. Do NOT try to prepare for residency. Programs do not expect much of you intern year and you do not need to impress on day one. This is your time to enjoy all the hard work and sacrifices you have made up to this point. Once you start residency you will enter a whole new world (cue Aladdin music) of struggles and hardships. So breathe easy now and just get ready to celebrate come March 16th. #matchday2018 #nrmp

Messy hair don't care! This is how I feel about Mondays, especially when I had to work all weekend and have not had a break. Been on NICU this month and we have been busy. I am on call again tomorrow doing a 28 hour shift. However, I plan to tame this mane post call with a much needed hair cut! Have to regain some humanity and post call days are the best for doing that! I usually try to make much needed appointments on post call days like haircuts, mani/pedis, dentist, eye exam, etc. Just gotta find the time to do something for yourself. However, some post call days I just sleep and catch up on my zzzzs. How do you spend your post call days? #regaininghumanity #postcall #manicmonday

New blog post is now up!! With so many neonates getting cranial  ultrasounds last week and of course being quizzed extensively by the consultant I decided to write about hydrocephalus and the production of CSF.... If only he'd quiz me again on it, might not look so stupid now. Link in my bio

I'm very grateful that I'm not yet at the point in my education where I'm graded on pronunciation... Thankfully, I've still got some time to practice during my preclinical education! 👩🏻‍⚕️

Sometimes your boyfriend wants to procrastinate studying so he makes you take "candids" 📸 And also sometimes your phone keeps autocorrecting candid to candida #medstudentproblems Got to enjoy the epitome of Sunday morning: brunch, apartment hunting, catching up with my old roomie @sabsbeauty, grocery shopping, meal prepping, and netflix binging 🤤But after a long morning/day of errands (which I actually reallyyyy enjoyed), finally about to get some work done! Sometimes a long holiday weekend really just means extra time to catch up on studying 🤓 78 days until I take STEP1, but who’s counting 😟😅🙃

A total knee replacement it is!
The diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thighbone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface. The artificial components of a total knee replacement are referred to as the prosthesis.

An x-ray showing surgical scissors left in the abdomen!
The 6.7 inch pair of surgical scissors were accidentally left in the abdomen of a woman after she had an operation. The scissors were discovered 18 months later because she kept complaining of intense pain in her abdomen.

OSCE Season is upon us! 😰 
For those of you who don’t know, an OSCE, or an Objective Structured Clinical Exam, is a hands-on exam that is used to evaluate the way medical professionals interact and treat patients. You are evaluated on your communication, clinical techniques and procedural skills. 👩🏻‍⚕️ It’s so nice to be able to get out of the classroom and do what we actually came to medical school to do...talk to patients! As much as it’s exciting to learn in this way, I often find it a little awkward knowing that the patients during these exams are just actors. 👀

What do you do to prepare for an OSCE? Any tips?

Get that voice box out!
This is a total laryngectomy surgery due to 4th stage laryngeal carcinoma!
Surgical removal of the larynx is commonly used to treat patients with advanced stages of laryngeal and hypo-pharyngeal cancers, which are malignant in nature and are not suitable for conservative techniques or in case of their failure.
The entire larynx is removed and the airway is interrupted, respiration is being performed through a tracheal stoma resulting from bringing the trachea to the skin in the lower, anterior, cervical area.
The surgery results in voice and smell loss following the complete and permanent separation of the superior part of the airway from the inferior one.
It can be also practiced in a case of post-traumatic laryngeal stenosis or cases of benign, extensive tumours with malignancy potential (recurrent laryngo-tracheal papillomatosis).
Voice functions can be replaced with a voice prosthesis placed in the tracheo-oesophageal puncture created by the surgeon or by electrolarynx, an external device that is placed against the neck and creates vibration that the speaker then articulates.

TIPS FOR TEST DAY! Try to finish your study schedule ahead of your test, so you can use your last few days for brushing up on topics, reading the review tables in First Aid, etc. Something you can do beforehand is register for a "tryout" test at your testing center just so you get used to the computers. This is a set of 150 Step 1 questions (no score or answers, just percentage). If you don't want to pay for this, you can do the 150 questions for free at home from NBME's website. Regardless, drive to the testing center beforehand so you know exactly where it is! Pack your snacks and make sure you have your paperwork all together the night before.
_____
Be kind to yourself. Remember to work out, cook, spend time with friends and family, etc! Relax the night before to get your mind off of things. I watched Lilo and Stitch with friends 😜
_____
I never get testing anxiety, so I went to bed the night before feeling completely fine. About one hour into the night, I woke up, and realized I had racing thoughts and started to panic. Less so about the test, and more just about getting enough sleep! In the end, I only got about 1.5 hours of sleep, and seriously considered rescheduling my test. I was flying out of the country the next day, and starting clerkships the next week, so I did not reschedule (and don't regret it). Luckily, testing anxiety and sleep anxiety haven't bothered me too much since then. 
_____
That being said, do not let rescheduling fees or your school's academic calendar be the reason you force yourself to take a test you're not ready for. If you need more time for ANY reason, talk to your dean and ask for an extension. They're there to support you, and want you to do well too!
_____
P.S. Anyone else jealous that the derm
folks get to be in San Diego right now? ☀️
