Nights Part One

Sometimes, just sometimes, something odd happens. Something brilliant.

It is this.

While minding your own business, you accidentally learn something you didn't know before. (For example; when looking at a 12 lead ECG, what might normally be treated as an NSTEMI (diffuse ST depression) needs much more agressive intervention when there is ST elevation in lead aVR.

You file that away.

2 days later, you go back to work, and stroll past just such an ECG.

The best thing to do is coolly deploy your knowledge, calmly and professionally.

I almost managed that. I think the Cardiologists were underwhelmed.

I saw the fella's angio today, mind.
