    Love to see Tim E on the site. Remember when he interviewed me as a medical student. Always check out this site on a slow(er) night shift. Keep up the good work!

    I am having trouble viewing the video on passing the esophogeal temp probe. Would really like to show my nurses as this is a practice change for them. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    Thanks
