Being part of red.
The Red Machine.
The Red Team.
1 EM Attending, one EM resident/physician assistant and one Medical Scribe.
Balancing true sickness with those with hypoxia or hypotension or apnea or cardiac arrest.
Or balancing life and death with rare entities that require icu once the diagnosis is made and the patient is stabilized.
The resus room is a Privilege, and an Honor. Not just watching like an Emergency Medicine Resident Intern. But now participating more than just placing orders but front lines with EMS, rapid response teams, ED triage or whatever falls from the sky when you work this shift.
