Performing Interventions as an Intern
I am an M4 in interview season. One of the practice questions I was asked was the following: You are on call and a patient needs a lumbar puncture. You have never done one on a patient. But you have practiced on simulation models and have seen attendings do LPs. The physician on call at home asks you to do the LP. Do you do it? Is this a skill interns should be able to do without direct supervision? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

ED Procedures for Med Students
Aloha everyone, and Happy New Year I haven't done my EM rotations yet, but I want to watch some videos to familiarize myself with procedures that are done in the ED so that I can assist/do when needed on my rotations. I wanted to touch base with the forum and get a sense of what procedures I should keep in mind. Could we put together maybe a top 10 or top 20 list? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking definitely venipuncture and maybe abscess I+D, lumbar puncture, intubation & central... ED Procedures for Med Students (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Lidocaine necessary for lumbar puncture?
Lidocaine often messes up my landmarks for LP. Everything gets too squishy and I can't repalpalpate as well for spinous processes to make sure I'm dead center. What are your thoughts on Versed +/- Fentanyl and just using the spinal needle without local? Crazy? Cruel? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Mayo Clinic Arizona IM training program - resident experience
Wanted to let applicants know about the training experience in this program. They do have the Mayo name and that is about it. The variety of cases seen is pretty poor. Just a lot of zebras. Bread and butter cases are not frequent. ICU rotation sucks. You are just a note monkey. Just putting in notes for the patients. Do not get to do enough procedures. They call themselves the safest teaching hospital in the county. You get only one stick for central line placement / lumbar puncture, after...
