  1. Diagnosis of Deep Venous Thrombosis About 30% of patients with PE are not found to have a lower extremity DVT. What do you do with those folks? I am not arguing the benefit of ultrasound. I just don't feel it is a necessary skill for everyone to have.
  2. So, how does the fact that a PA and two physicians neglected to consider DVT in their differentials on your friend, compel the rest of us to take an ultrasound course?
  3. The girl chose to stop taking food or fluids, knowing that it would lead to death. She was not euthanized. There was just no medical intervention into preventing her from starving to death, at her request. She was actually denied euthanasia previously.
  4. Agree. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason in the decision making. I am a good example. Spent some of my teenage years in juvie. Ended up getting my GED in my mid-twenties. Messed up and caught another ten months for a bag of heroin in my rectum, at the Canadian border. Parents were able to get a special favor called in at a diploma mill down in the Caribbean. Got a degree in hemp weaving and small engine repair. Took a chance about a year later, filled out some Caspa forms and presto, I'm a PA.

  6. "How many school should I apply to?" Seven. No, wait. Nine. Yeah, nine. You're welcome.
  7. Send me $10,000.00 in unmarked twenties, and I'll take care of things for you. I know some people who know some people. Wink wink. Nudge nudge.
  8. Roughly 38.742% +/- 0.0269%.
  9. Online reviews, and reviews in general, are bullshit on their best day. During the interview, ask for an estimate of currently active patients in the practice. If they have a panel of 3000, and you found 149 negative reviews, it gives you an idea of how many are doing the complaining. Unless I have received exemplary service, I will rarely go out of my way to tell the world about my positive experiences but, forget to put mustard on my hamburger, and heads are going to roll!
  10. Did any classmates get a grade higher than a C? If the teacher is of no help, I would ask a classmate, seek out a tutor, or start a study group.
  11. Is someone wanting to change our title? Guess I need to read a little more.
  12. Having read various stories about animals helping some people deal with anxiety, I asked the clinic manager today if I could bring in an emotional support chicken. She shot me down.
  13. I won't go into detail. Let's just say I've done some things I'm not proud of but, we are talking about ice cream here.
  14. I would do anything for love....but I won't do that.
