For weeks I've been accompanying my Attending for one of my patient's weekly electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), AKA electroshock therapy, treatments. But today, I got the chance to do it myself, supervised by my Attending, of course. Slathered the conductive jelly on the pt's temples, attached the electrodes, analyzed the baseline brain waveform, checked her for loss of reflexes, and pressed the little yellow button which was protected by a hinged plastic cover, sort of like on the buttons to launch nuclear missiles in the movies. The procedure went well.
You know you've got a fun job when you can say that you used something called "The Thymatron Device" on your patient.
