s experiences and mpressions the current health care environment Gawande divides his stories nto three sections fallibility mystery and uncertainty The fallibility section demonstrates that doctors can make mistakes Some fallibility arises from there being a learning curve For example No Respect its hard to do a central line correctly the first time But for a doctor to learn how to do a central line he must have a first patient to try The Spirituality Revolution it on The concern then arises as to which patients receive care from thenexperienced versus the experienced Yet fallibility occurs Comptia Cysa+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle (Exam Cs0-001) in even the most experienced doctors Gawande reports on one doctor who became so careless that he was no longer allowed to practice The frightening part of that storys how long his colleagues let him continue when they had concerns The Doctor also brings up this Economies and Cultures issue Its understandable that doctors are reluctant to come down too hard on their colleagues They need each other as a support system and thus need to maintain trusting relationships Further medicine Designing with Web Standards is uncertain andt can take a long time to see a pattern of truly Sadies Surrender (Oyster Harbor, irresponsible behavior as opposed to just having complicated cases Gawande makes the point that discipline of doctors works best whent done by a group outside the doctors peer group or employer because Structure Of The Nucleus its objective Then this outside group can propose a plan of action which the employer can mplement Unfortunately this model has been too expensive to be much of a viable option The mystery section details stories of conditions that cannot be explained by current much of a viable option The mystery section details stories of conditions that cannot be explained by current science like blushing pain and nausea In each of these cases the doctors could not explain why the patient had the condition Much of the time the patient just wanted the doctors to believe them even though there did not seem to be a physiological source of the problem It s nteresting that the patient s willing to accept that there Passage Through Crisis is no medical explanation than the doctors Yet the doctors are the ones with the training and have probably seen many circumstances when they cannot make a diagnosis The uncertainty section deals with how to make the right diagnosis or judgment There are several pointsn this section that have come up Science, Technology and Culture in the other literature reviewed for thisndependent study First The Road to Einsteins Relativity is the declining use of the autopsy The autopsys how doctors can determine what was actually wrong with the patient It Black Boy is the final way to get rid of uncertainty Its purposes to help the doctors recognize such conditions n the future Yet autopsies are done less and less Although many times the family s opposed to the autopsy and will not allow Maternity Bride (Silhouette Desire it Another recurring points the decision making power of the patient Patients have become pro active n their desire for decision making ability but they are much ambivalent about actually exercising t Especially Presunta colpevole in situations where theres uncertainty patients do not feel comfortable or emotionally able it Especially Poisoned Secrets (Murder and Mayhem in situations where theres uncertainty patients do not feel comfortable or emotionally able make the decision Some do not think they can handle the responsibility Safe Words ift turns out to be the wrong decision Gawande notes that doctors also prefer to make the decision One of the things he had to learn as a resident His To Claim (McBain Brothers Alpha, is how to persuade patients to the decision he thinkss best As health care becomes consumer driven the debate over the level of physician agency s likely to continue 45 starsI had a great time rea.
