One thought on “Medical Misadventures is Alive”

  1. Reading a short story from Medical Misadventures about a misidentified tapeworm led me to reflect upon interesting experiences I have had in my career as a psychiatric physician. The intern experience in the ER was certainly a useful rite of passage even if we might consider it to be abusive now. Perhaps mistakes were made in the ER when we dove into problems above our heads. I remember giving a patient a shot of Thorazine to calm him down. A little later I told him was ready to go. As he climbed off the gurney and followed me out of the room I heard a crack on the hard floor. It was his head hitting it! I never forgot that chlorpromazine can and does cause hypotension.
    The effort to make medical treatment more evidence based and predictable has led us to downgrade the importance of the human factor. Is it part of the problem we hear about with physician burnout?
