Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
From the student nurse holding a patients hand as she patiently leads
the bathroom, to the consultant who takes the time to demonstrate
sign in aortic regurgitation. Wonder is everywhere in medicine, it's just
of keeping your eyes open.
I thank you so much for your very thoughtful and well written article
in medicine. While there might be a lot more to say, there is little more
to add to
your short note, which indeed is a to-the-point piece of excellent writing
communication with the society of professionals in the medical community.
Thanks a lot.
