How to Examine Patients: New course from Apprentice Doctor

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Moving forward in expanding my Medical Skill Set. Finished the suturing course; asked the local doctor to check my work and acknowledge what I've learned. He also knows that I'm available to help in an emergency.

 

I also ordered the book Doom & Bloom and will give my review of it on this site.

 

I was highly impressed by the suturing course and so I ordered and just received my new course on Examining Patients. I will begin studying it this week.

 

I will let you all know what I think about it with updates to this thread.

 

Regards,

 

Wolfe

hey good luck DW ! I got into emergency medicine a few years back-started with a volunteer fire dept went back to school, and now working as a paramedic, my son also chose the same profession, both of us love our jobs:D may I suggest Brady's series of books they're great, haven't seen the Doom and Bloom book but its on my list,,even though I have a shelf full of text books on the subject..oh and buy 'real books' those e-books require power an you may not always have that..

Have fun learning!

,,p.s.,,for those thinking about learning this field, you must be able to remain calm, especially when with the pt, ok to lose it later, its just that you can't do anyone any good if your an emotional wreck, try to remember-"it's their emergency not yours", this does NOT in any way mean you don't care or that you won't do your best, and you do have to have a certain level of empathy for your patients, just think of 'duck in the water' calm on top, paddling furiously underneath..hope this helps..sorry to ramble...

Thanks for the encouragement Rayz, much obliged.

 

I will look for some volunteer ops here in France like Red Cross or perhaps even fire dept if it's possible. After I get through this material I will check out the Brady book series.

 

I started taking pre-med in college way back, I even worked a bit with the local paramedics in my teens, but got a bit discouraged at the long years it took to become a doctor. Things worked out anyway but really missed out on the skills....

 

IMHO lots of folks out there who can fix machines, few who can fix people including themselves and their family.....really great skills to have, especially in SHTF situs.

 

Regards,

Wolfe, I admire you for undertaking to learn those skills.

 

Me, I got one of the yellow books with the black banner that says "Surgery for Dummies"

 

Fortunately, I haven't had to use it yet! :o

Thanks Rod,

 

It's a big investment in time and effort but well worth it. Surgery for dummies :D Hey, why not?

 

BTW: I'm also putting in similar efforts learning some tactical skills. I'm considering some tactical training but will wait until I read enough to build up a good body of knowledge so the practical is more useful.

Way to go!!!

Walking the talk.

I have received my Doom and Bloom book. SO well written. Love it!

Good luck on all your endeavours

 

Hi Sherrie,

 

Thanks for the affirmation of my recent book purchase. It will be a lot of fun testing out all these examination techniques on the family, LOL!

 

If we don't have our health and ways to keep it.....we really have nothing.

 

Regards,

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
