Well said! I am currently a resident in Emergency Medicine, and nothing galls me more than to hear a colleague whining about being "post-call" or "being slammed" in the ED. As if this excuses him/her from clinical responsibility. Ask anyone on the street--no one will tell you that medicine is an easy, 9-5 job. If there is a degree of stress injected into ACLS/ATLS courses, GOOD! Someone who spazzes under the pressure of a quiet simulation will surely spazz when the trauma bay or critical room is loud and panic is in the air. The role of the physician is twofold--to make the decisions that help the patient and to LEAD the team! Dr. Mattox, with your permission, I am going to have "Stress is the pabulum of productivity" emblazoned on the residency program handbook! _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp.
