Monday September 14, 2009

Just finished reading Every Patient Tells a Story which illustrates how all too often we as physicians rely on test results rather than actually listening to and examining our patients. This morning I was called to see an elderly woman who was transferred in by helicopter from an outlying hospital where she had been admitted after a fall. She had injured her shoulder and was scheduled for surgery later today, but the computer-generated interpretation of a routine pre-operative ECG incorrectly stated that she was having a heart attack, or STEMI, prompting the emergent (and unnecessary) transfer.

Swam at Nitro with Tom and Eric, next to Steve, David, Lynne, Greg, Ron, and Kirk. Clint coached.
