Coming soon to a theatre near you

Went into the theatre twice in the past 3 days.

Operating theatre, that is.

And I felt scared. It's scary that in 4 years time, it'll be me poking needles into veins, intubating patients, pushing down LMA tubes, and pushing anaesthetic drugs/cutting them up. I actually got to see all of that stuff going on, and do some of the drug prep and pushing the LMA tube in and opening an airway and putting a patient to sleep.

In the theatre, mistakes could mean the difference between life and death.

It scares me, and I need a hug right now.

Any takers?
