Things Heard From The Nurses Station

Tech 1: “You need to go down on him!”

New Tech 2: “What?!”

Tech 1: (louder) “You need to go down on him!” 

Me: Laughing like teenage boy.

By the way, the term “Go down” does not refer to intimate act, instead it refers to the arterial needle tip facing downwards or towards the arterial anastomosis, this is really the ideal way to place an arterial fistula needle.  

The above picture just shows which one is which, “from machine” is the venous line, the “to machine” is arterial.  

I found it fairly amusing, although it really doesn’t take much for me to be amused.    🙂
