00:00 - 00:03It's finally happening
00:04 - 00:05There are too many COVID patients
00:05 - 00:07All departments converting to COVID units
00:08 - 00:12All the GI and Cardiology fellows have been drafted
00:12 - 00:15Even orthopedists are seeing COVID cases
00:17 - 00:19Were protected in Dermatology
00:19 - 00:21We have to screen for melanomas
00:24 - 00:26Sir...
00:27 - 00:28We are...
00:31 - 00:33We are being sent to the medicine floors
00:34 - 00:36We start at 7 am tomorrow
00:53 - 00:58Everyone who hasn't read the entirety of Bolognia please leave the room
01:13 - 01:15How could this happen?!?!
01:15 - 01:17I was told that I'd never step foot on the wards again
01:18 - 01:23I didn't score a 270 on step 1 for this
01:25 - 01:28Do you even know where your stethoscope is?
01:29 - 01:31 It'll be okay
01:31 - 01:34How do you treat pneumonia with a dermatoscope?
01:34 - 01:37Are we going to fill their lungs with liquid nitrogen?!
01:37 - 01:40Or do you suggest we use phototherapy?
01:40 - 01:42Sir there is evidence that the virus can be killed with UV rays
01:42 - 01:46Are you planning to attach an excimer laser to a bronchoscope?!
01:46 - 01:48Sir, I once intubated a patient on my anesthesia rotation as a student
01:48 - 01:52You can't even properly excise a cyst without rupturing it
01:53 - 01:54We're skin doctors!
01:56 - 01:57Seborrheic keratoses...
01:57 - 02:00Actinic keratoses and nevi...
02:00 - 02:03These are things we're trained to treat!
02:04 - 02:08Now you're telling me that I need to manage a ventilator
02:08 - 02:13Tidal volumes, oxygenation, ventilation, AC/VC, SIMV, and PEEP...
02:14 - 02:16I don't even know what PEEP is!
02:17 - 02:21Who here remembers anything about cardiopulomary physiology and the curve of Frank-Starling?!
02:27 - 02:29We'll be forced to wear one N95 mask for the entire shift
02:30 - 02:34How will we re-apply sunscreen to our faces every 2 hours?
02:34 - 02:36This is a tragedy
02:41 - 02:42I purged my mind after step 3
02:43 - 02:47I swore that I'd never do another rectal exam
02:48 - 02:53I don't even know how to replete electrolytes anymore
02:54 - 02:56I'd rather treat an entire panel of prurigo patients
02:56 - 02:59Instead of those damn walking rounds for 4-5 hours
03:00 - 03:02I'll develop severe venous insufficiency after the first week
03:04 - 03:07It's okay we'll wear compression stockings
03:14 - 03:16If the orthopedists have been pulled
03:19 - 03:23Then they must be desperate
03:25 - 03:26We have no choice
03:31 - 03:33I've heard that plaquenil may be effective for COVID
03:40 - 03:46Start everyone on the usual dose of 200 mg BID...
03:46 - 03:49...And if we survive this
03:53 - 03:56Free botox for everyone
