What is the meaning of disturbing my slumber?/To Save a life. Glad you had my number!
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)

What can't this guy do?
So good! Perfect level of knowledge for medical students and a great balance of basic knowledge and clinical context. Most importantly Aaron has a wicked hilarious personality which always shines through - how likely is this podcast to make you laugh as compared with Medical School lecturers? RR = 1000 (p<0.05)
