I feel awful after taking the CCS today. I took my 1st day yesterday and it went alright (medium in other words). I am sooo tired and sleep deprived that I ended up really messing up on CCS. Realizing only halfway through a chest pain case that I never did cardiac enzymes (!!) or doing a colonoscopy way before the gastroscopy for a patient with severe vomiting, forgetting that I only ordered the NG tube! These are just two examples. I messed up 2 other cases for not finishing and those patients are probably still in the hospital. Anyway....
I know that CCS only counts 25% of the mark, but I would expect that they can fail someone who can't handle a chest pain correctly!
Has anyone had similar experiences and passed or know how much messing up a cardiac case would count against me?
I looked forward so much to fininshing this exam and it's such a let down feeling so awful.
It may not be as bad as you felt. We can't do everything right on CCS. It is normal to forget a little bit here and there.
Good luck and cheer up!
