Gimme That!

When an attempt to place a feeding tube using fluoroscopy takes over two hours, four doctors, and 30+ minutes of radiation exposure, and it's still not in the preferred position, perhaps it would be worth considering the suggestions of a person who's been assisting with the procedure for over a decade?

Not being an MD doesn't mean that several of us haven't learned what does and doesn't work, and we actually use some of that equipment daily, compared to the once or twice a year some docs work with it.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go put some cream on my radiation burns while my blood pressure returns to baseline.
