Medicine Mondays


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today I’m going to just kind of talk about “Shift Work“. Shift Work? Yea. For most medical professions, there is some opportunity to do shift work. However, today I’m going to talk about my particular specialty — radiology. In general, a “normal” schedule for a radiologist is 8-5pm, Monday-Friday affair. Usually, depending on how big your group is, you may need to work 8-12 hours on a Saturday and/or […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Recently, I’ve been talking about Sleep Hygiene, mostly in regards to Sleep Apnea. However, today I wanted to talk about something a little different — Weighted Blankets. Weighted Blankets? Yea. As long as I’ve known my wife, she’s had problems sleeping for any long period of time. Over the course of any given night, she wakes up at least a few times, and it usually takes her awhile to […]

Hey everyone, this post is a combination of Medicine Monday and Whatever Wednesdays. This post is just a “Quick Update“. Quick Update First things first, I’m getting more used to using the APAP mask. I’ve definitely noticed that I can sleep less using the mask while still feeling more rested when I used to sleep longer before. For example, if I get at least 5-6 hours with the mask, I don’t feel horribly tired. If […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays… on Tuesday. Today is just a short post to explore “What is gustatory rhinitis?”. Gustatory Rhinitis? Yea. It’s kind of funny, but ever since I can remember, whenever I ate too much I would start sneezing and my nose would start running. I never really understood why. It’s kind of becoming a running joke between my wife and I because whenever I start sneezing after we eat she would know […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays today (and also Cyber Monday). Today is just a “Quick Sleep Apnea Update”. Quick Sleep Apnea Update I’ve kind of chronicled my sleep apnea journey for a little while now. It’s been rough for a little bit and I can understand why people would get frustrated with the process before ever giving it a chance. That said, it’s been about a month since I started using the machine. I think […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today, I’m going to talk about “The Sleep Apnea Learning Curve“. The Sleep Apnea Learning Curve So I’ve been using my APAP Machine for the last few weeks. The first few nights were difficult, but after switching to the full face mask, I’ve been able to settle into somewhat of a “normalish” sleep schedule. However, it took a good week or so just to get to that level, but […]
