Annals of B Pod: Winter 2015 Issue!

B Pod and the land of clinical uncertainty

This season's issue of Annals of B Pod we highlight clinical cases from our ED's B Pod to feature some complex cases starting with simple chief complaints, emphasizing the point that the sickest patients evolve from the mundane. Flu season continues to plague us and every day we face the question of how far to take the clinical evaluation when we see generic complaints. The decision comes partly from objective data, partly clinical decision rules, and mostly from a non-quantifiable summation that is clinical gestalt.
