O2 Sat

I made use of the O2 sat machine last night. One of my residents was acting very out of character (trying to get out of her chair and talking to herself). She kept taking her cannula out, so I thought maybe she wasn't getting enough oxygen. After reporting to the charge nurse, I went and tested her.

99%. That was not the problem. And her blood sugar was fine, too.

Wanna know what it was? Double whammy: wild storms all around us and two days out from the full moon. I tried looking at it scientifically, but that obviously wasn't the right angle. We're coming up on the Solstice, too. Maybe it was a triple whammy.

Man, I can not wait to get to work tonight.
