BehindTheMedspeak: Learn anesthesia at home in your spare time


Got an iPhone or iPad?

Just download "Essence of Anesthesia Practice: Diseases A-Z" and you're ready to push the propofol and sux.

Just be sure you know how to manage an airway, though, because within 60 seconds your patient is going to stop breathing and become completely paralyzed for about 5 minutes, until the sux wears off.


No ventilation by you = cardiac arrest = Code Blue = CPR, and the outcome is not likely to be good.

I'm just saying.

Bonus: the app is free, the way we like it.

But there's a small catch: for free you only get 5 of the over 300 recipes for anesthesia cooked up by doctors Fleisher and Roizen.


Not to worry — you can be a specialist.

[via Richard Kashdan — I wonder which five he's decided to focus on?]

I do more anesthesia than this at home when I'm picking up women at the bars...
