The Best Thing I Saw Yesterday :: Surgery Resident

And it’s not like he can only be partially in V-tach, that’s like being a little bit pregnant. You’re either in V-tach or you’re not.

...The Best Thing I Saw Yesterday: 

Annie Onishi, general surgery resident at Columbia University, takes a look at emergency room and operating room scenes from a variety of television shows and movies and breaks down how accurate they really are. Would the adrenaline scene from Pulp Fiction actually play out that way? Is all that medical jargon we hear in shows like Grey's Anatomy and House true-to-life? Is removing a bullet really a cure-all for a gunshot wound?
