There are good phone calls, too

Today, I received a call about a 12 year-old admitted to the ICU. The medical student and resident doctor had thoroughly investigated the case and presented the data and treatment plan in an organized fashion.

The child had ingested an unknown substance and developed severe respiratory symptoms and hypoxia. They started him on oxygen, gave him the correct fluids and initiated the needed medications. They had just a few questions but otherwise were handling the case perfectly.

By the time I arrived at the hospital, the child was alert and speaking comfortably.
