Hiccups during surgery
Yesterday was my surgical day. My last case of the day, a cataract patient, got the hiccups during the surgery. Under the operating microscope, it was like a series of earthquakes. It made for an interesting few minutes until the anesthesiologist could give him enough sedation to put the hiccups to sleep. The patient looked great this morning, except that the hiccups woke up after the surgery and are still there.
