So far, I've had three really sick people this month--one sepsis, one status, and one angioedema. At the end of each, the staff has said it went smoothly. The last one even said, 'from my perspective, that was like butter'.
Which reinforces my sense that, if an Emergency Doc knows exactly what's wrong with you and knows exactly what to do, you're a sick, sick puppy.
All those other folks that confuse the heck out of me with wierd shooting pains in their foot and some shortness of breath and a headache and oh, yeah, I'm sleepy--nothing too terrible seems to happen to them.
