Post operative teaching can be entertaining sometimes.
I understand when I take care of my patients in the PACU, they are in the fog of anesthesia. I understand they don’t have their wits about them.
But why is it when I ask them to, “Deep breathe and cough for me”.
I hear .. ‘UUHHH HHUMM’
No I said cough, not clear your throat.
Sorry, maybe I just find this funny.
