sh*t residents say, v2

Maybe it's the part where they're noodley?!

hahaha... i'm going to need more clarification about noodley bones. How does one get a noodley bone??

Mrs. Dr. D said...

Apparently the phenomenon he was referring to occurs when the bone in a limb is broken or shattered to the point where it's not connecting with the other bones it's supposed to. When the limb is subsequently examined in the ER, it gives the entire limb a "noodley" (?!!?) sensation when moved.

Blood, guts, and foreign objects sucked into noses and aspirated into lungs are hunky-dory, but the noodley limbs on D's trauma rotation are apparently out of his comfort zone.
