Not exactly op notes, but some ED limericks I wrote:@MDaware @TirathPatelMD @Skepticscalpel @krchhabra In my previous life I was an "op note writer." I tried to write limericks— Saurabh Jha (@RogueRad) December 30, 2015
Mr. Jones ate some bad guacamole
press on his belly, he shouts "holy moley!"

Mrs. Smith was awoke from her nappy
her belly was feeling quite snappy
white count? twasn't high
a fever? tad shy…
but the CT, of course, showed an appy
there once was a man from Bologna
thought he had caught a touch of pneumonia
he seemed like whiner

A number of Very Smart People (including Rob Huang, Minh Le Cong, Chris Nickson, and Reuben Strayer) have all pointed out that Cochrane is supposed to summarize the data, not editorialize:
@DocBrent @HumanFact0rz @CochraneAnaesth cochrane shud stay away from clinical interpretation - just crunch the data, let clinicians decide— Chris Nickson (@precordialthump) November 4, 2015
Ultimately, this isn't that big deal. Hyperkalemia is bad, but rare. But if we can avoid it without worsening time to onset or intubating conditions, why not?
Special thanks to Minh Le Cong & Reuben Strayer for their prepublication peer review.
