Immunization requirements

Yesterday I handed in the results of my Hepatitis B blood titre, which was done back in February. That was the last thing I had to get done in order to comply with the RT program's immunization requirements. I was given a copy of my school immunization record. At the bottom of the record it says "Status: Complete"

I started completing all of the immunization requirements in July 2008 and had everything finished 7 months later. From now on, I just need a yearly flu shot and TB test.

Math presentation feedback

My Math presentation seemed to be a big hit. I think I was able to make it pretty interesting and entertaining. The professor gave us our mark after the presentation. I was given a 100%. I might just get a final mark in the 90s for that course. I really wish I knew what my mark was, for the test that I wrote last week.

Math Presentation

I'll be doing the presentation for my Math class in about half an hour. I'll be talking about Math associated with skydiving. It should be fun. I'm bringing all my skydiving gear, to use as a visual aid, and I'm showing a few skydiving videos.

Math course almost finished

My Math course finishes this week. I have to do presentation in Math class tomorrow. I'll be spending most of today preparing for that. I'm eager to finish the course, so I made sure that I was the first person scheduled to present.

After doing my presentation, and watching other people's presentation, the course is finished. We've already written all of our tests.

This is the winner of the CSRT video contest. Very Funny.

Change to what an RT can do

In a previous post called "What can a Respiratory Therapist do?" I listed the 4 authorized acts that a Respiratory Therapist, in Ontario, can perform. If proposed legislation is passed, that list will be increased to 5. The 5th authorized act will be: administering a prescribed substance by inhalation.

That addition will allow RTs to administer oxygen without a medical order. It may also allow for the administration of some pharmaceuticals in the near future.

One of my better ideas

I sure am glad that I'm taking an elective course now, instead of in fourth semester. I'm half way finished the course. I write my last test next week and then do a presentation the following week and then I'm finished!

Summer school

I started my last elective on Tuesday. It's called "Excursions in Modern Mathematics". I should be finished the course on the 28th. It doesn't have a mid term or final exam! We have to write 3 tests and do a presentation. The first test is tomorrow. If I wasn't an elective this summer, I would have to take it in fourth semester next year. Fourth semester has a reputation for being very tough.

It's kind of a strange Math course. Our Professor described it as being about Math, without all the Arithmetic. I must admit, it's one of the most entertaining courses that I've ever taken. Next week we start using the textbook, hopefully that doesn't spoil things.
