A phrase that strikes fear in a nurse's heart:
"I'm going away..."
Especially when it is accompanied by complaints of chest pain, a decreased oxygen reading, and vomiting...
Don't worry. She was fine. She had just gotten a little too sleepy from her sedatives and I had to reverse her. The reversal gave her a little asthma attack which scared her...
And me when she started telling her husband goodbye.
So, while in my head I knew (read here: was hoping and praying) it was a reaction to my reversal medication, it still scared the crap out of me.
I just thought that if you ever wanted to know how to make your nurse jump up and take notice, this could be helpful to you!
