Hope everyone can ride this out intact. It's so strange with all the slowdown this is causing. I'm still working, but those in non-critical jobs are off and probably worrying about how they'll pay rent.

I know two people personally who have been infected, but so far me and the family have avoided it.

CT low dose chest is luckily not that high of a radiation dose on our scanner so the associated risks are very low and it gives 'Some' more information about the type and position of the pneumonia and how far it has infiltrated. They then use it to give more of an idea if it is actually Covid (along with other symptom info).

If it is worth it... Honestly I am not sure, whilst it does increase what we know and help decision making instead of waiting a week for the test results it is is non-specific. I would prefere doing the Chest X-Ray (which is highly useful) then isolate any possible positives regardless... we just lack beds...

Hey Forge, thanks for the warning, appreciate that you cared enough to post about it.

So, if this reaches you in-between naps/work, is a CT scan really worth it if you're showing symptoms? Isn't the risk of complications from the scan more significant than the extra information you'd get over just doing an ultrasound?

So I wasn't going to post this, but know 'roughly' where many of you live I thought I should.

Please all keep safe, stay away from other people and wash hands regularly. I don't want to hear of you getting this virus due to the large numbers of idiots in all our countries who have been ignoring the medical advice and social distancing. Even in younger people, outlier cases can turn deadly. My brother-in-law who is only in his early 40s ended up in hospital last week due to it causeing sudden fever seizures.

You mostly all know I am front line medical staff so I am doing 12 or 16 hour shifts through the nights right now. Every patient with ANY respiratory distress or other symptoms, I get to scan which involves direct touching and positioning.
If they look like they have pneumonia, I then CT them. This is on top of all other scans and work I do in the ER. We are currently in gloves, masks and full face shield at all times except for when eating in out staff room which now has a people limit so no eating together. We then full gown and hat and higher level of mask for any suspected cases but are being told to re-use masks due to possible shortage if this keeps going.

Anyway, good luck and stay safe all.

Not that you asked, but I'll go ahead and tell you what's up in D's life these days.

.. Nothing much really. Just relaxing and having a good time in general, job is unstable right now because of the damn virus so not much to do really, which is a blessing in disguise considering the amount of stress factors that been piling up lately. Nice with a change of pace.

Gratz on the grandkids though! Thats one of the benchmarks of being old (or so I'm told).

Hope the virus haven't messed with your day to day life too much!

Edit: Oh, and I'm also up för a game, should anyone run one.  Been itching to play since I started listening to narrated D&D stories on YouTube.
