Jealous of Surgeons’ Da Vinci, Anesthesia Demands a Robot of Their Own

  • 1.8K

Kearney, NE – Kind Samaritan Hospital. Growing increasingly dissatisfied with the benefits of a automaton and robotics enjoyed by their colleagues on the other side of the drape, local anesthesiologists are demanding that the hospital procure them a robot of their own.

anesthesiologist billing“It’s not fair!” announced Dr. Anna Stezia. “Surgeons now routinely have robots doing the work for them, while we’re still stuck in the stone age back here”. Her partners Drs. Mark Trendel and Barry Burg added that while automating the vitals charting, did alleviate some of the workflow, plenty more could be done. Drs. Trendel and Burg pointed out that robots could be taught to change fluid bags and put the table in Trendelenburg and even reverse Trendelenburg positions, leaving them with more time to care for the patient.

Local anesthesiologist, Dr. Levi Fed noted to Gomerblog that “Even nephrologists now have those rotating robots that make urine for them…and we’re stuck here in the dark ages, placing our own IVs”. He conceded that while it may be difficult to built robots that would not lose their sh*t from sitting through a 12 hour Whipple case, the technology now exists to make it happen.

When asked if they intended to use the robots’ astronomical computational power to solve Sudoku puzzles, anesthesia categorically denied the accusation. While the anesthesiologists did not threaten a full strike just yet, they made their threat clear by canceling cases if any of the labs are red or if a patient “just don’t look right”.

    Livin La Vida Locum MD chose the most rewarding of all medical specialties and became a hospitalist. Wanting to contribute even more to the medical community, he trialed his hand at clinical research, but quickly realized that peer reviewed articles, R2,, and Odds Ratios will never top the impact of thorough healthcare reporting. So he dedicated his life to delivering the finest, deepest and broadest medical news from around the country. He accomplishes this monumental task by accepting locum assignments all over the country; in towns, villages and “hospitals” you never heard of and will never visit. May all fans of medical satire benefit from his wandering.
