As I get ready to buckle down for some serious studying (let’s be honest, I have an ideal studying mechanism that I outlined for you all, but I don’t stick to it every day… tomorrow is 6 lectures of catch up) because exams are next week, I just want to leave you with this gem from my favorite professor:
Metabolic acidosis. Now we’ve added acid or removed bicarb. Let’s pretend we removed bicarb for a change. We’re going to have diarrhea instead. Well… let’s not. We won’t. But the patient will have diarrhea. Hopefully you aren’t shitting yourself in fear of acid base.
I keep forgetting I’m on a stream here. This is bad. But you’ll remember it.”
