I don’t really like scrubbing ortho cases, but there is something very satisfying about making it all come together and falling into the pattern of pass the drill, pass the depth gauge whilst taking back the drill, taking back the depth gauge whilst grabbing the correct screw and measuring it and loading it onto the screwdriver, then changing the drill bit and passing the drill whilst taking back the screwdriver, drill measure screw drill measure screw drill measure screw.
And I do feel a bit like a badass putting together her sniper rifle or something when I’m putting together the power drivers. They make a very gratifying KACHINK sound when the wire driver or battery locks into place.
Oh. And, um, yes. We do use power tools to drill into your bone to reduce fractures and such. We’re not very gentle about it, either. (We can’t be.) So think twice before doing stupid shit that breaks both your wrists.
