What Blood Loss??
A good scrub nurse always agrees with the surgeon even if the patient lost a unit or more of blood. I felt just like Nancy when concurring with a surgeon understating the blood loss. I always felt there were 3 categories of blood loss estimates: ABL, anesthesia estimated blood loss - EBL, estimated blood loss by the surgeon and NBL negotiated blood loss after the surgeon vs. anesthetist argument concluded. Actual blood loss was one of the great mysteries.
I promise this is the last of my political foolishness. Blame it on my brain freeze.
