THIS IS THE PORTRAIT OF THE NURSING SHORTAGE

THIS IS THE AMERICAN NURSING SHORTAGE

(via houseblew)

nightdutynurse:

emt-monster:

This is an x-ray of a 79 yo man who had lost weight and was being evaluated for swallowing difficulties.  During the process of having him rapidly swallow barium (dense element that allows one to visualize structures), he aspirated the barium into his lungs.  This led to respiratory failure.

The x-ray showed barium into both right and left main stem bronchi in the left upper and lower lobes.  The barium spread to the smaller airways which produced the tree-in-bud appearance (arrow).
This patient had the barium suctioned out (as much as possible), but he developed shock, his heart stopped beating and he suffered severe brain injury.  He died a short time later.

That’s one way to fail a barium swallow with flying colors…..

i don’t know what to tell you
other than the fact that a giraffe’s
heart weighs 22 pounds and that
somebody once told me when
flies fall in love, their entire brain
is rewired to only know loving each
other. when one of them dies, their
memory becomes blank. i hope you
never think about anything as much
as i think about waking up next to
you during a windstorm at 5 am.

"I either eat too much or starve myself. Sleep for 14 hours or have insomniac nights. Fall in love very hard or hate passionately. I don’t know what grey is. I never did."
