CHARLOTTE, NC – Local Respiratory Therapist Val Silver has seen it all in her nearly a dozen years working at UNC Hospital.  If you don’t believe her, just ask her.

That was until this past week when she overheard a third-year medical student getting pimped in the ICU.

Med Students are smart? Who knew?

“They were asking all kinds of questions about sodiums and potassiums and stuff, and the little whippersnapper was getting them right!  I never imagined there were things to know about medicine besides ventilators and their management.”

RT Silver continued, “I know respiration, ventilators, and everything there is to know about the lungs I’m pretty sure.  But they were talking about words that sounded made up like ‘respiratory acidosis.’ My cousin used to do acid, I should tell her it can effect her breathing!”

“I used to think all medical students did was get in the way of us veteran life savers, hell, this one is so smart he should be a doctor some day!
