I am still reading with great interest the analysis about evidence based medicine published by Trisha and colleagues, as well as the large number of responses to this article (44 and counting).
I would like to share some data (i.e., evidence) about evidence based medicine and clinical practice guidelines (Figures 1 and 2).
The numbers speak for themselves: evidence based medicine is broken and in crisis.
Raw data, interactive figures, and PubMed search terms are publicly available:

Finally, I would like to congratulate the authors for their excellent analysis of evidence based medicine.
I would like to acknowledge the following persons for providing valuable concepts in data visualization and infographics:
- Maria Fernanda Ramírez. Professor of graphic design. Universidad del Valle. Cali, Colombia.
- Lorena Franco. Graphic design student. Universidad del Valle. Cali, Colombia.
I have no competing interests related to this letter.
