    There are, in fact, cases of accidental defibrillations. I personally know of one. A nurse went in to a room to do her regular morning equipment and supplies check, when she tested the AED/defibrillator, not knowing it was attached to the patient. It gave him the minimum joules, but it still nailed him pretty hard. Turned out, the night shift nurse forgot to tell the oncoming day shift that the patient was attached to it. The wires were hidden under the blankets.

    I would’ve been way more terrified of angiograms if they were still like in the exorcist. Instead they give me drugs and I go night night and then I get ice cream when I wake up. But the whole laying flat for hours is wack.

    I know it’s not necessarily the topic of the video, but I always get kinda bummed when someone goes in depth into the Exorcism X-ray scene & doesn’t bring up the literal actual serial killer in the scene.

    My mom had an emergency triple bypass after being told doctors didn't understand how she was alive, the procedure took just over 4 hours and she recovered amazingly to live for nearly a decade more despite other health problems.
