Michelle Kelly Reminders If you are on prescription blood pressure medication, take it in the morning, but only with a small amount of water. Post-surgery care Remember that it’s common to have nausea following a procedure, and the surgery team can give you medication to help with it.

In addition, drinks like ginger ale and Sprite and bland foods such as toast, broth, soup and crackers can help. Pain medications can cause constipation, so you may be sent home with some stool softeners to help alleviate the discomfort.

During laparoscopic procedures, surgeons inflate the belly so eating foods high in fiber following surgery can help get rid of the gas. Eating foods high in protein is recommended following surgery because they help the body heal.

Some people find it is easier to eat small snacks throughout the day instead of big meals. When a patient is going to sleep for surgery and the anesthesiologist is putting a breathing tube down your throat, there’s a risk you could vomit.

If you recently ate, the vomit could go down into your windpipe and lungs (a process called aspiration). One of the least invasive ways to monitor the oxygen level in your blood is with a pulse oximeter.

This is certainly easier than drawing blood from the patient’s artery every time the anesthesiologist wants to check the level of oxygen. The pulse ox needs clear access to the blood vessels in the fingertip and nailpolishcan affect the readings.

“Ten different colors of Wet ‘n’ Wild (Nation; Nyack-on-the-Hudson, NY) fingernail polish were used: red, yellow, dark blue, green, black, purple, fuchsia, light blue, brown, and white.” According to the study, black and brown were the only colors to alter the readings to a statistically significant degree.

When you scrub in for surgery, you aren't supposed to have anything (rings, watches, jewelry, nail polish) on your hands. I know that all those who have direct patient contact in hospitals (nurses, docs, techs) CAN have nail polish.

I guess someone found out that bacteria can adhere more to the chipped area than smooth nail polish. Do not expect to be able to have time to apply/reapply make up while at the hospital or on call, however.

I have to say I got mesmerized a couple of times by some pretty eyes during surgery, and the mask just makes it more charming. I have to say I got mesmerized a couple of times by some pretty eyes during surgery, and the mask just makes it more charming.

As a heads up, no matter what you do as an MS3/4, you really have no significant impact on the medical aspects of patient care. So spend some time learning to actually sit down and talk to your patients about things that aren't in a computer template.

If you look like a slob, male or female, it will come back to haunt you. Patient's and ancillary staff judge you not only on your expertise but also how you present yourself.

The chief of surgery told me that he didn't trust a resident who had scuffs on the backs of his shoes. My chief of surgery told me if you look too polished, people are going to think that you can 't be trusted.

My chief of surgery told me if you look too polished, people are going to think that you can 't be trusted. Agree. I think that Chief is wrong and grossly misunderstands the importance of appearance in practice×.

Only once or twice have I heard a patient express disappointment that I wasn't wearing scrubs in the office. That's not why I dress up or have a nicely decorated office, but that response from patients is a pleasant side benefit.

*that attending may be echoing the aphorism in surgery that you have to look a certain way when you present for the oral boards (e.g., I was told to “nerd it up” a bit and not wear my usual clothes/hairstyle). That's your best retort? People get creeped out by the guy in a perfect suit, tie, shined shoes and slicked back hair.

Focus on becoming a better doctor, not your tie knot and the latest shoe fashion. When you're walking around clinic in a 5 grand suit and wearing a 25 grand watch while your main patient population is on Medicaid then you ARE making them uncomfortable.

When you're walking around clinic in a 5 grand suit and wearing a 25 grand watch while your main patient population is on Medicaid then you ARE making them uncomfortable. There is no need to flaunt wealth, especially in the face of people who have none, but being groomed, clean and well-dressed is always appropriate.

In addition, just as you assume that a Medicaid population will be uncomfortable with an ostentatious display of wealth there is a segment of the population that will also be uncomfortable with their physician looking like they just rolled out of bed. That's your best retort? People get creeped out by the guy in a perfect suit, tie, shined shoes and slicked back hair.

I've been gone a couple of months, forgot who the trolls were, coming back pretty fast. Yeah same here... thought it was some elitist fashion brand given the context of this thread.

I had a PA chew me out in front of an attending for wearing polish today (she was very rude!) I did a quick pub med search and couldn't find anything convincing which is in concurrence with Cochrane database which states there is no evidence that wearing nail polish I'm the OR is associated with increased risk of infections.

Yep, no nail polish (and you're not supposed to wear fake nails, either...they can harbor bacteria) when scrubbing into a case is pretty much standard. The fact that a male attending didn't know is not surprising to me, since most men don't wearnailpolish.

Both hospital systems that I've worked at allow nail polish as long as it's not chipped, but definitely no fake nails. That being said, as a student I would err on the side of no nail polish unless the female surgeons on your service wear it.

I'm looking around the OR right now, seems like most of the nurses and residents wear eyeliner and mascara but not much else cosmetics-wise. None of them seem to have the heavy foundation or blush you see occasionally on other services.

Might have something to do with it all melting into a pink and orange splotch on the inside of your mask over the course of a four-hour procedure. Nail polish and fake nails are banned at my facility. Pretty much the only time we judge female residents around the hospital is when they wear skirts that are extremely short, thigh high boots, six-inch heels, or any combination of the above.

I have had more than one instance of patients completely distrusting their resident on account of her looking like she should be at the dance rather than the med floors. I'm sure the culture varies widely based on hospital and area.

Short skirts are a common faux pas, but I've absolutely never, in all my years, and practice in multiple states, seen a female physician wear thigh high boots. My school differs on the proper attire based on which hospital I'm at.

One hospital has a strict protocol for surgery rotations that are sometimes laughably ridiculous. It goes so far as to require only black or white shoes while wearing scrubs.

I had to stop wearing my normal scrub shoes (all 3) because they were bright green, brown or my favorite Air Jordans in red-pink. I had to go buy a pair of regular shoes to appease them for those 2 weeks.

Looking nice makes sense to myself, honestly. Some of my rotations required you wearing professional attire at ALL times during surgery if you weren't in the OR/OR floor.

Whereas some things may be perceived as taking too much time to be consistent with a hardworking busy learner (extremely done up hair, makeup etc). Also, there are regional, institutional, departmental, and service specific cultures that play a role.

It is important to be clean, to be put together but don't let it take away for you're studying and learning. As for the person comparing themselves to the chief who they felt looked like s***... That department felt the other person was the right person to promote as chief, they should be your standard of what is expected as the balance of appearance versus skill (tack in the fact that they have a greater workload though).

Also, remember that persons work load is far greater than yours...kinda unfair to be comparing their attention to their appearance to yours. Don't forget the cases where they turn up the heat in the, and you're holding up that limb for a few hours.... then you start to sweat and that powder and mascara start to drip and run... fun.

When I wasn't wearing makeup, everyone constantly commented that I looked like I didn't want to be there. Since they control my grades, I am decked out like a peacock. Of course, it doesn't hurt that my surgery attending is hot, so I have ulterior motives...
