The thought of taking a break during a  busy emergency department shift can sound impossible if not contrary to the ethos of our job. The reality, however, is that taking a break is  not only possible, but will likely make you clinically sharper, more efficient, and possibly even happier. In this episode, Dr. Joshua Russell walks us through how to take a break within the constraints of our clinical responsibilities as well as pitfalls to avoid when taking a pause from patient care.
