I want to become an ER Doctor, but i was concerned about was the stress level,
do you have to go into therapy after a severe trauma case or do you eventually get numb to it.

Your ER Doc 02.11.09 at 6:24 pm

It’s very stressful, but most medical specialties have stress. The key is balance in your life. Family, friends, health and work. When I have a tough case, I talk about it, decompress and move on. You do get used to the environment and seeing patients with unfortunate problems.
Thanks for your question!

What may cause a late twenties female, with no previous health problems, to randomly and instantly start sweating rapidly and lose ability to move body yet staying concious? These episodes are not daily and only last ten-twenty mins before I re-gain normal state. I have three children and need to know how serious this could be.

Can you tell me what would cause me to retain fluid so easily? We are talking about pounds of fluid randomly interrupting my life. I feel prone to it since I did have eclampsia years ago as well. Just small elevation changes make it really bad, flying and probably sodium plus other things that I’m not sure of. I do drink lots of water and I just don’t know what else to do to prevent it.

I am the owner/operator of the Cedar Park Emergency Center in greater Austin, Texas. With the help of my colleagues, I am starting an “on line Journal” called “The Journal of Freestanding Emergency Medicine”. This web site is currently under construction but will be up in the next few weeks and the first Issue (collection of 7 articles) by January 2014. I hope to have at least 4 issues out next year (quarterly). This is an invitation for supplying content. If you or someone you know would like to submit content please let me know. I have already tracked down some Freestanding Docs, Nurses, Radiology Techs, hospital administrators etc from around the country and they are contributing content. We are amidst creating some research articles along with discussion articles. Let me know if you are interested in contributing or if you know of someone that may be interested in contributing. As you may imagine it can sometimes be difficult to find contacts. Thanks!
