Doctor Reacts to WILD Medical Tweets

1 498 030 Näkymät

I’ve burnt myself out fact-checking dangerous Facebook and Instagram health posts lately, so today I headed to twitter to have a laugh and check out the funniest medical tweets I could find. As they say, there is always “truth in comedy” and these tweets were no exception. For instance, it’s true, you don’t HAVE to get weighed when you come in for a routine checkup. I also talk about sleep apnea/CPAP machines, as well as weight loss surgery. Bear popped in to say hello too :)
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • Hospitals are extra echoey because most of the time the floors, walls and ceilings are made of smooth surfaces like marble or cement or something, and makes it easy for the noise to bounce around. Noise insulators like carpets and thick curtains aren’t used (and hospital curtains are thin and sometimes plastic), but if there was carpet on the floors and walls, and heavy curtains, it would be waaay quieter

  • My thoughts on organ donation: If I am in bad enough shape that the doctors would consider harvesting my organs to give to someone else I probably wouldn't have even remotely good quality of life if I managed to survive so I'd rather save a life. I don't fear death so if I die I die & I hope my death will be able to help someone. The doctor giving himself an appendectomy story sounds interesting. Bear is adorable. Did anyone ever upload a Sim of him to the Sims4 gallery?

  • I did not know about the scrub machine. All of the friends that I have that work in the medical profession have to purchase and launder their own scrubs. Is this something that varies by region, or hospital? I am very curious now.

  • Patient bill of rights? For an MRI I explictly asked for not getting a contrast agent injected. I gave my signature to this. 30min later in the tube the nurse asked me for my right arm as "normally everbody gets this shot". If I haven't complained and refused she would have given it to me. Nobody cares about your rights if you don't speak up. Later it turned out that the pictures were fine and very useful, although no agent was used.

  • I’m not even in the medical profession and I get asked to shut up when my eldest son (8) and his dad are eating. Now my youngest son (6) and I can watch and talk at anytime about any type of medical procedures and not bat an eyelid, even whilst eating. It’s just second nature to me, it never used to be, I used to cringe at the sight of blood. I now have a few illnesses and almost a dozen surgeries and IVF up my sleeve, you get over phobias real quick, especially needle ones when it comes to IVF. Worked out well, neither of my boys are scared of needles.

  • So I know the Antarctica story because I watch a show called QI and it was featured on there. So here's the story: The doctor's name was Leonid Rogozov. In 1960 to 1962 he was part of a research team in Antarctica, he was the only doctor there (which is key to the story). One day in April 1961 Leonid woke up in pain and was feeling weak, had nausea, and moderate fever. Later in the day he started getting pain in the lower right portion of his abdomen. He tried everything but nothing worked. The following day his condition was worse and the nearest hospital was more than 1,600 km away and no helicopters could get there because of snow storms. So he was left with no choice but to operate on himself. The operation took about 2 hours and he survived. I think he wrote about it saying it felt like a million bee stings or something like that.

  • "anything you don't want to do, you don't have to" LIES!! About a year ago, I made an obgyn appointment for the sole and singular reason of getting my birth control refilled (I need it to prevent severe, debilitating cramps). And there I am, waiting for whatever doctor I'll end up seeing that day, and a nurse walks in and tells me to change into a gown for my very first ever pelvic exam. I was not there for a pelvic exam. I was not prepared to have that dropped on me. I did not want a pelvic exam. So I asked the nurse of I could not do that that specific day and she literally told me no, I had to do it, shoved the gown into my arms and left. I was terrified and shaking the whole time. On the upside though, the doctor was super nice and understanding.

  • When I tell people I’m an organ donor they give me weird looks or will be like “why?” Boi when I die I’m either going in the ground or being turned to ash. Why have my organs thrown out (since they do take your organs out when preparing your body for visual at a funeral) when they could be given to someone who has been waiting desperately for a chance to have a better life. If my heart is healthy and I match with someone who has a bad heart and they get it, they could actually be able to live a life without worrying about their heart failing and killing them. There are so many things you can give to help people when you die. Your skin, muscle, eyes, hair, lungs, heart, liver, intestines, bladder, kidneys, why would you let those go to waste when someone could survive with them? I won’t be needing my organs when I’m dead. 🤷‍♀️

  • My stepdad used a CPAP machine the entire time he was with us (passed a year ago) and when I first saw it as a teenager, I couldn't believe anyone would be able to sleep with that head mount and breather, because the hose wasn't very long, the mask looked uncomfortable and if you roll around or toss and turn, like I do while trying to sleep the mask could come off or could potentially choke you out (I know this isn't very likely) but somehow he made it work...

  • LOVE the organ donor information, but how do you get REMOVED from the donor list? The state can't remove it from my driver's license, and I'm a walking pharmacy (plus my organs aren't viable for transplant bc chronic conditions - but I look normal externally). I REALLY do not want them ripping me open just to find out that I'm a wreck, especially if there's a recipient expecting it (they go through enough hell as is). Aside from estate planning, family being aware, and doing all the advance directives at every possible hospital I go to, how can I fix this in case I die elsewhere?

  • I’d love to donate my body to medical science- I don’t need it after I die. I love the idea of it going on to help others- either by organ donation or to help help doctors learn surgical skills.

    • I've had both an advance health care directive that specifies dnr/dni wishes for next medical event and also a bequeathment to a hospital that I used to be a frequent flyer at, for over 2 years now but still receive healthcare sporadically from currently . I have migraines too plus I'm a lightening rod for complications with medications, procedures etc that usually help other people that left me quite disabled and not feeling comfortable being a donor anymore, feeling that my organs would be subpar, so I chose to do a body donation, requesting cremation and my remains being stored where the hospital has a spot for donors who don't want for whatever reason their remains returned to family, after the hospital is done with the body. Depending on how your family is, it's not necessary a fun conversation to have, either end of life wishes and after death ones, I do think it's important though for people to have and not to wait til an emergency situation to have it. I'm hoping though in your case, perhaps there is more they can do for better headache control while you're still here.

  • Given that normal body temperature is based on an average, those of us who have a normal below 98.6 have to tell hospital staff that our normal is lower so that they can tell we actually do have a fever at 99.5. Normal for me is 97.5. I feel feverish at 99, which is not that much higher than 98.6. When my temperature hits 99.5 or higher, then I know I'm in trouble. Your viewers need to be aware of this kind of fluctuation in 'normal' PS I want to hear the Antarctica appendectomy story too

  • One detail about organ donation: You or your estate, or in many cases, your life insurance are charged for every second of ICU care between the moment you are pronounced dead and the moment your care is terminated, if you're an organ donor. This can be _many_ 10s of thousands of dollars taken from your surviving family. Until the laws are changed, this is a very good reason NOT to be an organ donor in the US. The medical/insurance companies have a stranglehold on congress in the US.
