You receive a call from the PACU about a 55 yo patient s/p Whipple procedure.  Seems that his urine output over the past 2 hours is zero, and they're just now getting around to calling you.

(note, all residents should have access to Anesthesiology articles online if they receive the journal.  Many other journals are available with a USF account through MD Consult...just access it from the departmental home page)
