Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst wrapping hecticest four weeks in Department Anesthesiology, Reanimatology and Intensive Care...! Yeayness!

In the first week, we got Block Course; where you can learn Basic and Advanced Life Support here. We sistematically learned and practiced how to give first medical care to patients with life-threatening illnesses or injuries until the patient can be given full medical care. Maintaining airway patency and supporting breathing also patients' circulation were not as easy and simple as things I read on the guide-line book. In fact, giving the CPR (Cardio-pulmonary resuscication) is really tiring, straining and difficult to maintain over longer periods of time. It's important to seek for help, two rescuer minimum, to keep good quality of CPR!

Also the biggest thank you to our teachers, dr. Anas Nasyitul Himam (NAS) and dr. Erce Darmanto (ERC) for being beyond patient "brainwashing" ours so we can be more aware and alert of the surroundings and able to give the emergency management well. We really hope your residency things go smooth and wish you a great success in your career, sir! Be great anesthesiologists very soon! :)

I also learned that anesthesiology work requires long and hectic hours. Being an anesthesiologist (esp for first year resident) simply means you've been ready for sleepless nights. Those sleep deprivation, fatigue, also practicing in the high stress environment... are another little things to deal with when you decide to become an anesthesiologist. I give my two thumbs up for their hard work!

And we went to Happy Puppy in Grand City for celebrating after-exam madness. Sing 'till we dropped!

"To be successful in anesthesiology, individuals must excel academically, be incredibly detailed-oriented, calm in stressful situations, and warm and caring in order to ease patient’s anxiety." (MHA Health Center)

Thank you The Department of Anesthesiology, Reanimatology and Intensive Care...!
Always hope for the best and prepare for the worst! :)
