#TOTW (x10) ‘#AnatomyWeek’

Hey hey hey!

Long time no see! I’ve been away on me jollies so not had a #TOTW for a while! I know right!? Anyways, I thought i’d kick the new school year off with another of my theme weeks (even though i’ve graduated now and am no longer at school!). In previous weeks i’ve covered CPD, addiction, assisted dying, the Society of Radiographers and the NHS. This week I chose to shine the light on and have an #AnatomyWeek. As per, with my theme weeks, below is a summary of all my #AnatomyWeek tweets for your delectation:

  • anatomy
  • #FollowFriday for #AnatomyWeek is @Irr_Anatomist. A great resource for #anatomy via #histmed & #MedicalIllustration @SCoRMembersFrom ‘Tabulae Anatomicae’ by Bartholomeo Eustachi, 1783. Β @Irr_Anatomisthistmed
  • Just happened across this and had ta share. It’s sort of relevant to #AnatomyWeek! πŸ˜‚ @SCoRMembers Not every day one gets a card from students with such a thoughtful and witty personalised anatomical message. Moved. @DocMatthanseminal
  • Other websites are available, but this seems particularly good & it’s *FREE* Β http://www.anatomyzone.com/
  • How many @SCoRMembers know about muscle types, points of origin & insertion? Do we need to know? Should we know? #anatomy #CPD #AnatomyWeek

pelvis

cervical

  • Interested in #anatomy? You’d do well to follow @PastMedHistory to receive Regular doses of #GraysAnatomy πŸ‘ Avit! #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers of the skull from 1918 edition of Gray’s Anatomy by Henry Vandyke Carter skull
  • It’s back to work for me tomorrow & time for another theme week so I have decided upon #AnatomyWeek @SCoRMembers

books

I hope you enjoyed the latest of my theme weeks, as I certainly enjoyed putting it together! In future theme weeks I will probably take a more in-depth look at some body parts/systems. Ah well, something for the future!

Take care and have fun learning! #ReadLearnShare

#TOTW (x17) #MedShift is back!

Ciao!

I know I’m a few days late with this, but i’ve been enjoying my off duty – post #MedShift! As with the last time I did this, I thought it might be an idea to collate all my posts into a sort of journal, and so here they are…recorded yet again for posterity:

Thursday (1/4)

  • After off duty days it’s time to return to #MedShift with 4 long days, 1 x 10-8 shift today then 3 x 8-8 days #NotMyFavourite @SCoRMembers
  • Starting the day in #Outpatients – GP referrals & clinic follow-ups. Can be anything from head to toe! #BringItOn @SCoRMembers #Medshift
  • Time for an early tea then off to A&E for the final part of the #MedShift – quite often the busiest part of the day! #DeepJoy @SCoRMembers
  • #Medshift 1 of 4 done βœ… 3 more to go! Last part of the shift wasn’t all that bad thankfully. Hometime. Shower, tea n’ tele β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘ @SCoRMembers

 

Friday (2/4)

  • Handover from nightshift βœ… Rooms cleaned βœ… Resus trolley checked βœ… Left AED to come to #Outpatients again #MedShift day 2 πŸ‘ @SCoRMembers
  • Am in #FractureClinic this morning and just been shown how to do a standing axial calcaneum βœ… #EverydayASchoolDay #MedShift @SCoRMembers
  • #MedShift ends with a #traumacall – no plain film imaging required as patient going to CT! Handover to nightshift βœ… Hometime! βœ… @SCoRMembers

 

Saturday (3/4)

  • #MedShift 3/4 underway & it’s the weekend so running X-Ray’s from AED. Inpatients, mobiles, theatres the lot! #SeeWhatGives! βœ… @SCoRMembers
  • Halfway through the #MedShift, just finished lunch & theatre have called – just an MUA today βœ… Off I go! πŸ‘ @SCoRMembers #ChangeOfScenery
  • Straight from the MUA to another theatre & an emergency pacing – not done one of those in a while #BitRusty 😱 βœ… #MedShift @SCoRMembers
  • Home at last, after a long #MedShift! Lots of portables today. ITU, amongst others keeping us busy, as per usual! πŸ›€ time! βœ… @SCoRMembers

 

Sunday (4/4)

  • Tired only scratches the surface of how I feel 2day 😴 Let’s hope a large brew & 3 x Weetabix enable me to get to #MedShift 4/4 @SCoRMembers
  • Couple of knees βœ… couple of portable chests βœ… resus trolley checked βœ… #MedShift 4/4 well & truely underway! @SCoRMembers
  • 2 patients, 2 fractures. One the worst fracture I’ve ever seen, the other just a minor one. Shaping up to be a varied #MedShift @SCoRMembers
  • Back from theatre – 2 x MUAs βœ… Time to do the processing from the day’s theatre cases (x5) – #RealitiesOfTheJob #MedShift @SCoRMembers
  • Head-to-toe X-rays βœ… Portables βœ… Trauma Calls βœ… Theatre βœ… #MedShift complete! Now for some off duty days! πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ#OverAndOut @SCoRMembers

 

Monday (off-duty)

  • The β˜€οΈ is shining, yet I still feel like I have a hangover – without the headache! Thankfully no #MedShift today! πŸ˜‚ #shattered @SCoRMembers

 

The great thing about doing this is the interaction I get from my tweets, as well as me being able to share things about what it’s really like to be an allied health professional.

You certainly don’t learn this kind of stuff from a textbook!

I hope you enjoyed. Until the next time.
