quirks about your friendly neighborhood respiratory therapist

I can bag with both hands (ambu-dextrous!) elbows, or one limb and any hard surface.
I know fat people are easier to bag in semi-fowler's.
Catlike equipment-catching and fumble-recovery reflexes.
I can draw a blood gas in various contorted positions.
Being able to fit in very tight spaces: such as elevators.
Two words: contingency planning.
So much crap in my pockets that one pantleg hangs lower than the other.
Hospital feet: the phenomenon by which I navigate ICU patient rooms, and avoid tripping on everything.
