All in Just Another Day

In this episode of the Physician Grind Podcast, Dr. Michael returns to share with us another one of his incredible stories from the Emergency Department. Dr. Michael is in the middle of his shift when a pregnant patient in labor is brought in. After examining the patient, Dr. Michael determines that the delivery is imminent and that there is no time to take the patient to labor and delivery. An OB/GYN intern rotating in the Emergency Department performs the delivery with no problem. However, as she is about to perform an episiotomy tear repair, she is greeted by a "surprise delivery".

In this episode of the Physician Grind Podcast, Bryan shares with us the story of dealing with an "animated" trauma patient. The patient was riding his bicycle when he was hit by a car. The patient is screaming and refusing to answer any questions. One of the paramedics decides to look through his bag to see if there are any drugs that would explain his erratic behavior. Sometimes it's just better not to look through the contents of a Satchel.

In this episode Dr. Todd Feinman shares a personal story where a false positive tumor scare resulted in him having an unnecessary and painful surgery.  Dr. Feinman believed that his experience could have been avoided had there been user-friendly technologies in place that would enable patients/physicians to use the data found in clinical studies to determine the most effective test or treatment for a given medical issue - so he created his own company, Doctor Evidence, to solve this problem.   

Episode 2: Luis shares a story in which he faced two patients who had issues with their "exit tunnels." He first gets called to a patient who is defecating up and down the hospital Hansel and Gretel style. After getting that patient situated he is approached by a different patient who is in agonizing pain... pain that started when he put garlic up his rectum.
