Day One

Lived through Day #1. 6 hours down, another 6 tomorrow to go.
Geez, can't believe how anxious I was yesterday. Had trouble sleeping, and woke up at 530am this morning. I suppose the exam went well (touch wood), wasn't as bad as I had thought it to be. Although the questions were at times mind-boggling:
  • Was that really tularemia??
  • Sarcoid, sarcoid and more sarcoid
  • Eaton-Lambert syndrome (I think...)
  • Methanol intoxication (thank God I remember the osmolar gap formula)
  • AML M3

One more day...

here's an interesting thing about methanol poisoning. Parents: this is where you close your kids' eyes.
Poor, homeless people can't afford alcohol (ethanol). so, they gulp methanol or ethylene glycol (antifreeze). get high. come to the ER (cos if they don't they die). And we treat them with?
Yup, you guess it. Ethanol. They get a second high.
