Episode 15: Three Patients, Three Families

As I finish a three-week rotation in the Intensive Care Unit, three patients with three families stick in my memory. Not so much for their individual cases, though each was memorable and heartbreaking in its way, but for how their needs and ours worked together - or failed to. Also, a trip to the mailbag for more questions from Nancy! Enjoy!

Episode 14: From the Newswires

In this week's episode, I go to the front pages of the last week, trying my hand at a little bit of political commentary from the medical perspective and trying to put some scientific sense into our reading of news headlines.

The two issues I talk about are based on articles about Dick Cheney's blood clot and the Walter Reed Scandal.

As always, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this week's episode!
