Where has all the pimping gone?
Clinical examination is a dying art.
Just spent another frustrating shift attempting to admit a patient with acute appendicitis (clinically) – without a CRP, ultrasound scan, CT scan or a tattoo on their forehead saying “I have acute appendicitis”
Thought it appropriate to share a clip from the olden days…
“Eyes first & most, hands next & least, & tongue not at all”
“To be a successful surgeon – you need the eyes of a hawk, the heart of a lion and the hands of a lady”
