Guys, look. They finally made a baby stroller for wheelchair-bound mothers. This is so important.

My wife is a physical therapist.  She started tearing up when I showed this to her.

Always think holistically.

Do you know the horrors that happened where you’re standing?

Life goes on, strange isn’t it?

Wow This is fucking brilliant. My new favourite post on tumblr.

This is truly a work out art, props to whoever created this

DUDE — I swear I didn’t take your pulse. Or if I did, I was just gonna borrow it and give it back, man! Honest!

Well, I don’t tend to “take” a lot of vital signs myself anymore — my nurses will “vital” the patient before I come in to examine them. But on the rare times that I do a manual blood pressure (to recheck a patient with high BP during the visit, for example), I tend to do the BP separately from counting the pulse. I must not be multi-talented enough to be able to count a steady beat while also listening for systolic/diastolic sounds and watching the BP cuff dial.

So, why do OTHER people take the pulse and BP at the same time — Probably efficiency? I do know that the “quiet time” during which you are taking a patient’s pulse is a great time to “sneak in” a counting of their respiratory rate, since when people KNOW that you’re observing their breathing they usually breathe in an unnatural and awkward rhythm. So if you can do a BP while also counting the pulse and the respiratory rate, you’ve knocked out 3 of the 5 vital signs already! BAM!

(Now you just need to figure out a way to take their temp and assess their “pain number” (chuckle) at the same time — then you can get the whole process named after you and retire rich.)

Oh wow.

Yeah, this is why I checked “Origami for the Conniseur” out of the library and eventually screamed in frustration trying to make the Kawasaki Rose.  (I can do cranes.  That’s about as complicated as I get.)

Um, possibly relevent to copperbadge's interests, I guess?

please tell me that rarity’s colour scheme was used on purpose
