Stoked

Psych note: Patient noted to be in chain stoking respirations. Ah, yes, stoking the chain while breathing - classic.

It's unbelievable the amount of stuff you can graduate medical school without ever really learning.

Oh dear God. Sometimes people scare me. A lot.

If you don't know what it is or how to spell it, DON'T write it in the frickin' chart!!!

maybe it was the transcriptionist? although it should be proofed before signed.

Most likely not a transcritionist error - as this was hand written and also included this gem: abnormal gait noted. The patient is a paraplegic.

I actually googled "chain stoking respiration" because I would have never thought that would have actually shown up in a chart...

The Girl said...

Seriously??!! Abnormal gait in a paraplegic? Madness.

They do say that you forget stuff pretty quickly if you don't see it everyday or study up on it....
I have heard that seeing ophthalmologists manage Code Blues is a similar mess....
