BLS?? CPR?? It ain't that easy.......

salam & hi all...

Yesterday good & bad things happenned in my life. The good thing first; finally i got my BLS cert, selepas 2 kali try, huh... 1st time on Tuesday fail mcq, alhamdulillah ari ni reseat mcq & pass... Tq kpd cik Lala yg telah meminjamkn hardcopy soalan pastyear, ur help r very much appreciated!! :)
Before going to d BLS session (again), me with my group went to the OT and tagged with d anest dr in paed & uro OT. They were fun, we done a few procedures and we learned a lot too, including some 'not good' stuffs, hehe.. my group will know wut is this. Then we inserted an IV cannula to each others hand! yep, it was a good morning!

* aku mencucuk tgn Lala & it was successful!muahaha *

* bile mfk plak yg buat kat aku, seb baek masuk, haha *

* sesi CPR & defibrillate *

* Lala berusaha menyelamatkan mannequin yg sdg tercekik *

* baby yg unconscious *

* iyas ditendang oleh mannequin sbb salah buat, lol *

* d conclusion, we have fun!! *

The bad thing; real CPR is not that simple...after getting my cert, i rushed to the A&E dept. because i saw a patient that had cardiac arrest being pushed into the resus room. There, i assisted the Dr, nurses & MA in CPR-ing the patient. Guess what, it's very tiring coz it took around 50+ minutes and lastly, the patient died (may Allah bless him). So, d morale of dis story is that, dun take your BLS skills for granted, it may mean life to sumone else, k?

And yesterday night, sumthing nice also happenned, a fun night i suppose, hehe... :)

penang MS conference;cool~~

salam & hi all,

[this is my first post by the way]

Hujung minggu lepas aku dpt pluang utk pegi ke Pulau Pinang utk hadir ke MS conference. Aku pegi sana bersame zairi,nisa ghazali & atiqah.

In summary; it was splendid!! The lectures were nicely done and the best part of it was the workshop sessions. Mase workshop peserta diberi peluang utk buat a few procedures yg normally no medical students would be allowed to do which is CVP insertion, chest tube insertion, laparoscopic surgery and colonoscopy.

So, basically, hari jumaat a.k.a d first day, ader opening ceremony & the one that officiate it was our deputy DG, Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham B. Abdullah. Tp, main highlight utk 1st day ialah d Grand Dinner, makanan dier mmg best & 4 sure aku mkn dengan banyaknyer,hahaha... Then kami kluar berjalan2 di sekitar gurney drive & ambik gmbr but sadly, fon aku abis bateri plak, x dpt la nk ambik gmbr,isk2...

Then, d 2nd day, paginyer ader lecture a bit but i forgot d topics already,lol... D best part of 2nd day ialah workshop,yeah!! Mase workshop ni la aku dpt buat colonoscopy, laparascopic surgery practice, chest tube insertion, CVP insertion, pakai POP, BLS, etc. Slack a bit is dat my time for the lap is 1:33 which is very slow,huish...

Dat nite, we have our BBQ dinner (seriously, gi conference ni cam makan jer lebih,haha). D fud was nice & after that ktorg gi jln2 ke batu ferringhi, komtar & sekitar bandar georgetown.

(kawan2 dari PMC & USIM)

Hari terakhir a.k.a d 3rd day, nuthing much to say, ader lecture lagi & forum, guess what, dr ismail saiboon & prof ted herbosa (from A&E HUKM) ialah panelist utk forum tu,nice...then d closing ceremony & the conference was officially finished! Tp kami sumer x abis jln2 lagi kat Pulau Pinang so, off we went to Queensbay Mall. But, nuthing much there, biase jer, (org penang jgn marah aaaa) haha...

Well, that's about it, xde ape2 dah yg aku nk ckp 4 this post, so, bye & salam...
