    Bonus Song! Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Bonus Song! Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Lyrics:
    Necrotizing Fasciitis/Necrotizing Fasciitis/So much pain/ React or be slain/ Necrotizing Fasciitis
    Necrotizing Fasciitis/Dissolving don’t delight us/Pain out of proportion
    I need a limb abortion/All from a sore shin!
    I’m on the lookout when I see soft tissue/Is it going fast? Are you sick? I asked.
    It feels like’s it’s a shark beneath the surface/The fascia elevator is at their service!
    Oh no doc, is it do or die!?Why yes, TBH, lucky I’m your guy
    Piptazo, Vanco, Clinda after cultures/ toxins swarming like in, like mini super vultures
    What kinda mean bug got me through this wound?/First type’s a party cracking bubbly; stay tuned
    Type two a hitman - strep pyogenes on your knees/ Or maybe Vibrio from the ocean seas!
    >
    Call the surgeon in the middle of the night/Hey good sir could you join the fight?
    What is the meaning of disturbing my slumber?/To Save a life. Glad you had my number!
    CHORUS
    When the surgeon arrives patient has less pain (of course)/ Is it effects of sepsis to the brain?
    When I push he jumps not off the stretcher/Cutaneous anaesthesia is a late sign, I conjecture!
    Youre a genius, hah, to the OR tomorrow!/Uhh good sir, but that could end in sorrow
    Perhaps you could deign to operate stat/Steel and faciotimy would save him like that (snap)
    We wheel him quickly down the hall/A little levofed makes his pressure not stall
    Cut the leg theres necrotic goo/ compartments are relieved two by two
    Thank you docs for saving my life/Everyone lauds you cept the ex-wife
    No problem, mr patient, thats what we do/Watch for nec fash with soft tissue!
    Ohhhh you got to save the day save the day save the day
    Ohhh do serial exams you ll save the save the day
    Ohhhh mr doctor got to save the day save the day save the day
    Ohhhh give good discharge instructions for red flagsssssss and you will save the day
    CHORUS!

Matt Chi ,

So helpful!

Currently in my 3rd year at NOSM and I find your podcasts incredibly helpful! Really appreciate your humour and approach to subjects, especially on long drives around Northern Ontario.
