During these past weeks at the Archbold ER, I had the opportunity to put into practice many of the content learned in class. This included but was not limited to the proper placement of a Foley catheter using sterile techniques, insertion of an NG tube, and assessment of patients. Even though I attempted to complete some of my initial goals for this internship, I noticed that I couldn’t complete a few of them due to lack of time and lack of experience in the field. Therefore, some of my goals that I’ll need to address during the following three weeks include improve my assessment skills, have better communication with my patients, and improve my questioning to get a better understanding of the cause that brought them in. One the most beneficial
I have always heard the phrase that as one journey ends another one begins, but I never truly understood how accurate this phrase could be for me. The efforts to discover what was causing my pain was an ironically distressing journey of confusion, bafflement, and disappointment up until this appointment. I will forever remember WellSpan Orthopedics because it provided a reason for my hip pain that was just dismissed by others, but opened up a whole new realm of discovery about my health. On December 11, 2015, as I entered the doctor’s office, I was a ball of nerves. If I could not find a solution here to my hip pain, my career as a runner would have zero chance at recovery.
A few days later, the teams met up with the coaches. There were about 10-13 people on each team, and all of mixed grades from grade 6-8. I didn't really know anyone that well, so I just sat and listened as the coach talked and congratulated all of us for making competitive. Then we started practices that week, and the skill level to me was different then I had imagined from my earlier years of playing. the drills were much harder than I was used too, and I got very confused easily for what I was supposed to do.
Lee. and he had a very serious heart disease. This is explained in the forward on page 16 and says,“He has been down that spring with the first assault of heart disease which will eventually kill him.” The best the doctors could do to help his condition during this time was to give him compressants, and what these compressants would do is limit or tolerate the pain but it wouldn’t completely stop the pain. Since this wasn’t an exterior wound the doctors could rarely do much unlike gunshot wounds. The only problem with this medicine was it didn’t help stop the disease only limit or tolerate the pain, so the patient was still very vulnerable to the disease.
Sometimes I wish the class room were as simple as me being on the field knowing what to do . I tried college without sports and just relying on my knowledge to help me transfer to another school . But it didn't work out too well , my first year of college was brutal ; school just didn't feel like the correct path for me . It was the spring semester
The next type of murmur is an abnormal one. These can be very dangerous and can be linked to an overworked heart valve. There are so many symptoms for this kind of murmur which include: chest pain, breathlessness, fainting for no reason, and heart palpitations. (WebMD Staff “Heart Murmur”).

I was nervous since it was my first time trying to achieve a goal I really wanted. However, I was disappointed since I obviously didn’t make the team and didn’t do my absolute best. The second time after making the team I felt like I had accomplished something for the first time in my life and excitement for a new part of my life. During my first year on the team I still felt these same emotions for different reasons. I believed that even though I had made the team I wasn’t preforming to my best ability and when I was trying my hardest it still didn’t feel good enough.
As is known to all, spinocerebellar ataxia is hard to cure and patients who suffer from this kind of disease will go through enormous pressure. In other words, this disease will affect the patients’ mental and physical health deadly. However the existing medical technology does not work on it well. Therefore, in other words, if nobody really cares about them, this disease will make patients suffer forever, which does not only result in a heavy burden of family but also a burden of society and medical organization. Is it really able to be cured completely?
Tim tried to explain this to the patient; however, the patient still told him how uncomfortable the brace was for him. The doctor was in the facility at the time, and took a look at him. They got him a new brace that could go over his jeans, and crutches to go with them. The athletic training student that was in charge of the patient at the time did a good job in explaining to me that they can say and do all they can, but they cannot force him to wear the brace. Which just shows not all patients are going to cooperate with you
