Double Post Wednesday #illumedati   Recently updated !


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 […]

Over the course of any given night, she wakes up at least a few times, and it usually takes her awhile to […]

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 […]
