The Indian Intern

Hi! 🤠
While doing procedures as interns, it is difficult to look for concise sources to know how-best-to-do-it.
With the time constraints some details may be missed.

So, we, students of 2016 batch Seth GSMC and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, India have tried to compile information regarding such procedures (both basic and some that we may get a chance to perform).
Reliable sources and tips from our seniors and resident doctors have been used.

With limited resources in India, we can definitely do with a Freakshake🥤 of practical hacks and standard procedures😉🙃

PS: This is meant to COMPLEMENT, and not REPLACE practical skills to improve patient care

From continued efforts of
