Straws! Ventilated Straws!

Apartment is getting the cabinets ripped out and replaced today! This SHOULD fix the mold problem by eliminating all the damaged wood.

We're learning all about ventilators this week. They're scary. The idea that i could personally blow out somebody's lungs? very scary. Especially since half the settings appear to be specifically designed to prevent venous return, especially PEEP settings, which nonetheless sound exceptionally useful for somebody in severe resp. distress.

Besides, our professor is an old ER nurse, and LOVES her trauma. A few of us got in trouble for laughing at her photo of a guy with "BMW" impressed backwards into his chest from hitting the steering wheel.

what? i thought it was funny!
