Re: Bad medicine: chest examination
9 July 2012
Cursory medical examination can be carried to extraordinary lengths as revealed by one of my relatives presenting to a doctor complaining of cough, not undergoing chest auscultation and being prescribed nose drops. When, an hour later, I took 1 minute of my time to listen to her chest, the obvious inspiratory and expiratory wheeze confirmed the need for more appropriate treament. Bad medicine? Indeed.
