Perioperative tech is some of the most important stuff that happens in the life of a patient. Our mind and body are always on the lookout for the information that might be out there and will keep us busy for a whole month. We have to be prepared to work with the health of our body if we want to keep our mind active. If we need to think and act, we have to learn to do it for the life of our patient.
It’s also a lot of fun to be a part of the process of getting those medical supplies into the hands of patients. You can’t just buy them. The health-care system is very, very expensive. You have to buy them. And then you have to take them back again. There’s not much room for error, and you have to be in constant communication with the team that provides the supplies. It’s hard to get your head around, but it’s really rewarding.
My friend, Dr. Michael D. Cates, teaches a surgery-based course called “The Perioperative Technology Class,” and he tells me that he’s never seen a patient so happy to be there. He tells me that he’d rather be working on his home-improvement projects than working on his patients, which is a problem when your patients are in pain or near death.
It’s not a bad thing to be able to talk about your work, but let’s say you’re working on a new project or something. Then how do you talk about the work? That can be a real pain.
The good news is that your patients are no longer in pain. The bad news is that you can be too. The perioperative tech class I was in was designed to help people learn how to be better at dealing with perioperative stress. While that is a great thing that helps them become better at their jobs, it can also lead to a lot of self-handicapping.
I’m an obstetrician, so my patients are no longer in pain. But I’m also a mother, so I’m used to dealing with perioperative stress. Having said that, I am not a patient. And I’m not a mother. I’m a doctor. And I’m also an obstetrician. So I’m used to dealing with perioperative stress.
I’ve been around in the perioperative world for a long time. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have to deal with perioperative stress, especially when you have to deal with it for the rest of your life. I imagine it can be very overwhelming, and even though the stresses are different, the same thing can hold true, especially when the situation involves a disease.
Im not a mother. Im a doctor. And Im also an obstetrician. So Im used to dealing with perioperative stress. My advice to you, Im not going to take the time to see your doctor, because it can be really stressful.
When a child is born, there is the very real and very real danger that they will encounter perioperative stress. All the things that can go wrong with a new baby are also present with a newborn, and so it is no surprise that a newborn has the same sort of worries and stress that everyone else does. The difference here is that a perioperative is having to deal with it the rest of your life.
