  2. My attending apparently didn't hear, but since he was actually a fairly cool guy, I ended up confessing to him what happened the next day just to get a laugh.

  3. See, a neurology resident would immediately panic thinking that he'd suffered a spinal cord infarction, ignoring the more obvious diagnosis of "my pants fell down."

  4. Same happened to one of my fellow LEDs residents during a neonatal resuscitation. She kept right on bagging. What a trooper!

  5. Ay, not "Led," "PEDs"! Darn that iPhone autocorrection.
