I had to miss class today, which I hate to do. I had a friend that had a brief episode of syncope (that’s doctor speak for saying she fainted) in class. I had an eventful day with her getting different issues ruled out by EMS and various ER staff. No big deal, she seems to be OK, and I would want someone to be there for me, especially if I was thousands of miles from my family.
So, now I am listening to the lectures on the recording system we have in place. I keep yawning as I am learning about respiratory physiology. I think it is a combination of early mornings and late bedtimes, end of the week tiredness, and power of suggestion.
Total Lung Capacity *yawn*
Inspiratory Reserve Volume *yawn*
