This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for…

After more than a decade of doing the same stupid things over and over again, in the last few years, finally, we have begun to let good sense and logic take over:

  • We have finally moved away from the idiotic “everyone gets oxygen” mentality
  • And the stupid spinal immobilization for insurance neck and back pain
  • Waveform capnography for intubations and hypervents (sorry – don’t really care about the shark’s fin)
  • CPAP
  • Lucas (even if it makes no difference in survival)
  • Timestamps on monitors that get exported to PCRs
  • The media finally got distracted and forgot about Ebola wiping the US off the map

I need to work on my Christmas list.
