See one, do one, teach one

Well, I've seen more than a few, and I've done my share. But last night I lived up to my end of this venerable tradition of medical education by teaching another student to place a Foley catheter -- entirely en español. Turns out I've picked up some Spanish words along the way that I didn't even know I knew....

And I have, in fact, been shown a procedure or two (with explanation in Spanish, natch) and then expected to repeat them. It can be a bit nerve-wracking, especially while sleep-deprived and operating in subtropical heat and humidity. On the other hand, I made a splash with my ultrasonography attempts. ¡Vamos!
