ORS per purge

Please, could someone remind me that I'm no spring chicken, that age is catching up on me, and I could not expect to be the same superhero in uni that can go without sleep.
I'm at home. On a work day. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are unpleasant, but I suppose I'm thankful that I have time to work on my clinical presentation #2. But seriously, the ORS is horrible. And I need to stop skimping on sleep.

i asked dr s why give shohl's and mist kcl but never potassium citrate and he said, have u ever tried potcit? it's horrible. in shohl's... it's not so bad.

dont let the potcit in ors get u down!!

on a more hilarious level, ms e went on grand round in paeds today and told me that dr d got grilled on ors as well, and on the function of potcit in the mixture, and he said citrate is for vitamin c supplementation, whereupon he choked on his own words and said but vitamin c is ascorbic acid.

ok! see u tomorrow, u finger squeezer.
