Knowing that your efforts in getting a cannula in can make a big difference is someone’s life is a very rewarding feeling. Just today, my patients have been able to have medications for life-threatening conditions and strong pain relief because they were successfully cannulated 🙂

Modafinil: to take or not to take?
