In his own words:

Quote from Dr. David Convissar of Count Backwards From 10

Does Count Backwards from 10 sound familiar?

Woof Pack members might be thinking of our 100% cotton COUNT BACKWARDS FROM 10 scrub cap.



Dr. Woof are huge Count Backwards from 10 fans. In 2020 we decided that we'd like to see one of our caps on the head of one of our heroes. 

When Dr. Convissar mentioned that he only wears sugar-skull designs, we knew exactly what we had to do. We worked with him to make the ULTIMATE sugar-skull scrub cap for anesthesiologists and anesthetists. 

Take a closer look at the design

Cool right? Well,  not nearly as cool as the platform that it is named after. 


Four reasons we love Count Backwards from 10 (and you will too)

1. Advice you can use

Count Backwards from 10 is a no BS zone. Everything Dr. Convissar shares is accurate, practical and useful.

If you'd like an example, here's one of our favorite posts from last month. This little gem is helpful for anyone who does physical exams. (It probably comes in handy for your weekend DIY too. )


2. Lessons that don't put you to sleep

Count Backwards from 10's lessons and White Board Chalk Talks are super engaging and easy to follow. You could listen to one on the bus home from a 14-hour night-shift and still take in every word. 


3. A sneak peek into the life of an anesthesiologist  

If '80s rock-bands can have groupies, why can't medical disciplines? Bon Jovi and Brett Michaels are probably interesting. We doubt they're this interesting:


 4. Joy

There's something about watching Count Backwards from 10 videos that makes us happy inside. It could be the rush of learning something new, the inspiration that comes from watching someone who clearly loves their job, or a little bit of both.
