Dr. Edlow’s Deadly Dinner Party

04 Dec, 2011

 

Dr. Edlow investigates patient histories on a regular basis to diagnose disease in his specialty of Emergency Medicine.  With an overwhelming number of “mysteries” that he must solve as a physician, he shares with our crew the interesting approach that he takes to solve these mysteries.

Dr. Edlow also enlightens us regarding the lesson of “the blind man and the elephant” and discusses with Avash Kalra the changes that are occurring in medical education and the profession as a whole concerning reliance on technology.  His fascination with the detective side of medicine has helped him avoid taking the easiest route in diagnosing his patients and has also shaped his reliance on patient histories.  “Stay curious,” he reminds us.
