Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science Free E–pub
Atul Gawande ë 5 DownloadAd written NO SHITThe book is full of these minor pseudo epiphianic moments that come off as weak aphorisms However given the audience of this book everyone Charmed Particles he does well to treat people aboutow uncertain medicine really is and Running with the Kenyans how it really comes down to the tricky nature of making decisions andow they should be made in the medical settingBut the conundrum remains if both doctors and patients are fallible
who should decide We want a rule And so we ve decided that the patients should be the ultimate arbitershould decide We want a rule And so we ve decided that the patients should be the ultimate arbiter such ard and fast rule ultimate arbiter such ard and fast rule ill suited both to a caring relationships between docotr and patient and to the reality of medical care where a underred decisions ave to be made uickly The doctor should not make all of these decisions and neither should the patient Something must be worked out between then one on one a personal modus operandi Where many ethicits go wrong is in promoting patient autonomy as a kind of ultimate value in medicine rather than recognizing it as one value among othersAs the field grows ever complex and technological the real task isn t to banish paternalism the real task is to preserve kindness pg 223 4This simply makes sense nothing new Duty hereThe best part of the book is the last two paragraphs and is all you really need to readave said that you ave read the book in my opinionThe possibilities and probabilities are all we ave to work on within medicineWhat we are drawn to in this imperfect science what we in fact covet in our way is the alterable moment the fragile but crystalline opportunity for one s know Dreamland. Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep how ability or just gut instinct to change the course of another s life for the better In the actual situations that present themselvesowever we can never be sure whether we ave such a moment or not Even less clear is whether the actions we choose will prove either wise or elpful That our efforts succeed at all is still sometimes a chock to me But they do Not always but often enough pg 251 2In a way the whole thesis of this book which I think is summed up in the sentence in bold above is pretty remarkable There is so much talk about the fallibility and The Princes Scandalous Wedding Vow humanity in medicine right now fallibility is soot right now However as is apparent in this book the medical community is only at the stage of recognizing this fallibility Gawande doesn t do what I thought Thru Hiking Will Break Your Heart he would suggest what we should do given the increase visibility of the fallibility of the practice of medicine He really doesn tave any good ideas In all Women's Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle his articlese seems to be advocating a technocratic answer using checklists etc The biggest problem I ave with the book is the way Gawande seems to view the profession
Medical Community Of Independently Actingcommunity of independently acting who in the aggregate are not too of an impressive lot In this Gawande is entirely old school He fails to recognize the possibility of alternative ways to approach patient care In a way I think that e is dangerously anecdotal Maybe it is just me being tired of reading anecdotal medical non fiction but it just seems like a lame format don t The Power of the Internet in China hold these words against me because I really don t know what I am looking for or what type of book I would write He treats them like data points I believe that the book could be reduced by about 80% for someone like you or I who are as far in the medical field as we are However I believe there to be value within this book I am really reallyappy that millions of people future patients are reading books like this and Groopman s How doctor s think as it really does educate them to get real about what medical care is all about It will serve to empower people and get them involved in their care and think about ow they want it to go down But to me I really did expect a lot from this guy The reviews that it got are ridiculous they are way over the top It is pretty incredible it goes to show ow easy it is to be eard once you ave written for the New Yorker and got a MD from Havard I will keep reading Caveman Alien's Trap Caveman Aliens his books though for no other reason than thate is so The New World Spanish/English, English/Spanish Dictionary (El New World Diccionario espaol/ingls, ingls/espaol) (Spanish and English Edition) hot right now millions are readingim I at least Do Better have to know other people are thinking about.
