Interesting Case

Ever seen an "incarcerated diaphragmatic hernia?"  I have.  Last night.

The guy who had it was in seriously rough shape.  In the CT, his entire stomach was sucked up north of his diaphragm and was sitting next to his heart.

You know who figured out that something way worse than the simple chief complaint was?  It wasn't the doctor.  It was the nurse.

Strong work, Nurse. . . Strong work.
