Real life, real time Medicine!

Its true. Whilst we are in lectures or taking advantage of a late morning start, real life, real time medicine is happening all around us. I finally ventured to East Block yesterday morning to sit in on Dr Fardon’s clinic. What did I see…

1 lung cancer and empyema
1 probably lung cancer
1 ?PTX which turned out to be pneumonia
1 ? lung cancer which turned out to be pneumonia
2 cases of chronic cough
1 case of sarcoid

So a mixed bag, and all really interesting.  Breaking bad news and a look at tree in bud CT appearances. There are definitely some things that even Kumar and Clarke cant teach us.

    The clinic was groovy. CT scans brought through customs from Australia, big empyemas, a chronic cough we actually cured, and plenty of time to teach the young Laura.

    I’m on the ward for 2 weeks, so no clinics for a wee bit…
