Another "Oh Yeah" Moment
There's a nearby school district having parent-teacher conferences today and tomorrow, meaning the students are off. This means I saw six kids for physicals today with more scheduled for tomorrow.
Scenario: Perfectly healthy 14 year-old boy, tired because he was awake all night at a friend's house ("sleepover" is such a misnomer) has a blood pressure of 120/100 (120/90 on repeat) with both a regular and large adult BP cuff.
How much soda (caffeine) do you drink?
- Very little.
- Cheese, peanut butter crackers, cheerios.
Suddenly the kid says,
Oh yeah! I had an energy drink.Cool. At least he remembered it while he was still in the office. Most of the time it's a call back several days later. We'll still re-check the BP, but at least mine went back down.
