These on-call shifts really get the juices going. What's the longest period you've ever stayed awake?

85 hours, late on a sunday was asked to prepare a 3 day course for another institution with practices and all of that stuff, had to investigate and prepare all the power points, practice for exercices i was going to show etc etc. Needless to say that once i arrived home i fell in the couch and woke up at 3 am next day...

Longest stretch for me is 84 hours or so. Definitely not healthy or normal, but that's my longest stretch of being awake. I have major sleep issues and at times it can become quite unhealthy. Right now, it's been about 26 hours since I've slept and I'm feeling wide awake. Will likely stay active until night time tonight then I'll crash for eight to then hours and just go with the flow.

I thought I was going to watch a video about daily work of a neurosurgeon, not a video of a neurosurgeon's face talking.

I will be very honest. For some reason, I would feel really, really nervous about having a neurosurgeon who has a vlog channel on TRshow.

Thanks for sharing. I recently had a brain tumor removed and due to the pressure in my head, I do not have any memories of my surgeon making rounds so this video filled in some gaps. We made some videos from a patient's pop if anyone is interested youtube channel sailing Pivo

My thoughts right at the start of the video: "you are a neurosurgeon. You work on people's brains. Your margin of error is a fraction of a millimeter. If you make a tiny mistake, your patient might die. ... You work a _24h shift?"_ 🤨😳😖

Around 8:55 when he says his patient would be admitted for pain management, is he sent to a physiatrist/PM&R doctor? Because that's the specialty I'm really interested in 🙂

I still can't wrap my head around the fact that as doctors you just have to deal with 24-hour shifts like it's normal and you're supposed to function very well and do precise procedures even if it presents in hour 22 or something.. Like how could the body tolerate this and not just collapse. An 8-hour shift can drop me dead WTF are you superhumans or what's your secret

Half of his life gone in making his career, as evident by the receding hairline and other facial features. Still now he isn't a chief consultant. You'll be an oldy baldy till u master this subject. I just wonder if its worth the effort and time invested, because by the time you have good money, you no longer have your youth to enjoy it. Of course its a great thing for your kids and your patients, but not for you.
