Texas Children’s Hospital Internship

Elaine Schweizer

From her blog about the third week: 

“This was a very exciting week at my internship because I actually got to stand inside the operation room for a large part of the operation that I watched. I also got to see the beginning of the process of setting up for the operation, and I got to meet the anesthesiologist. It was a very interesting procedure, which hopefully the child, who was very young, should only have to have once. She had a heart defect where a connection between her heart and her lung artery which should have closed after birth was still open, so the doctors were going to put a block in the connection. I got to watch most of the operation from the observation room, and watch the X-rays on the computer screens, as well as some of it from the operation room. It was very exciting.”
