I’m at work because it’s a Saturday and why the fuck not 😒.
We have a patient that has been screaming ALL NIGHT LONG. They were recently extubated, recently as in dayshift. For some reason NO ONE thought to get a follow up ABG. The RT decided to get an ABG tonight for shits and giggles. Values as follows:
O2 sats 86.5
Oh. *Maybe* we should do something about that!
Guess who ended up reintubated…
