24. TUBEX: pre loaded penicillin syringe
Edited on Wed Apr-30-08 02:49 PM by Tyler Durden
Comes in 1, 2, and 4 million units of Pen VK (Penicillin with a booster), stored in a VERY COLD REFRIGERATOR.

4 million is the common Syph/Clap dosage. If you don't give me shit because you're drunk at 4 am and got me woke up to treat you for VD coming home from the bar, I get out the 4 mill TUBEX and warm it in my hand before I shoot you up.

HOWEVER: if you ARE an asshole that got me woke up on my 24 hour duty when you could have waited until morning sick call, then I use FOUR of the 1 mill TUBEX, two in EACH CHEEK, straight out of the fridge. I don't care how much you walk, you won't comfortably get on a pair of pants for at least 2 days.

27. Hey, you know the drill.
If I spent all day in the clinic dealing with Dependents and GOMERS with bruises, THEN I've got the "DUTY" for the next 16 THEN a full 8 until 1600 liberty, You REALLY don't want to wake me up in the Duty room unless you're trying to DIE. Then I cut you a huss.

But you show up, nasty smelly drunk and I get to swab your "Johnson" at 4am, spend the next hour running the tests, treat you, do the paperwork and not get back to sleep before muster...Well, you know what they say: NEVER piss off the Yeoman or the Corpsman.

We never did any initiations. Sewage Pit, I mean Sewell's Point was bad enough. First year there, I oversaw (and picked up the slack) on 3 strikers running the "drawing room." We drew 100 patients an hour, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Minimum.

25. Ah yes. 2 hours in Flouroscopy, squeezing in 10 units of RBC's, 5 FFP, and 5 platelets with pressure
Trying to locate where in his GI tract this guy is bleeding out before he croaks on you, and he's AWAKE with the DT's at the time, thrashing around, spreading blood and other stuff all over the place.

Ah the good old days.

4. In my book, ANY leakage is bad.
Whenever they try to take my blood, I get a nice big vein until the needle gets within a 1/4 inch of my skin. then it disappears faster than GOP morals. I always tell them that it knows it's not supposed to leak.

17. My child.
I hate it when that happens. Especially if it's a gusher and you have to stay in brave parent mode pretending everything is just fine and it's only a little bit of blood.

20. Anywhere on me
I could be elbow deep in someone else's blood (not that I really like to be) and it wouldn't bother me a bit...but if I get even the smallest papercut, it's the end of the world!

22. Fingernails.
I don't know why, but that bugs the hell outta me.

I can watch creepy shit in horror movies like people being cut open or burned or eyeballs popping from heads and all kindsa crazy stuff... but the minute you get a puncture or ripped off fingernail, I cringe and have to look away.

40. ok, orifii are big in this thread but I'm thinking internal via the testicular arteries...
...so that the scrotum fills with blood and distends. Would the pressure relieve through the inguinal canal? THat's a question I hope never to have to ponder too closely.
