The “Big Picture” Diagnosis

Our topic for today: diagnosis using a broad constellation of indicators, not a single red flag.

To mix things up, rather than read about it, let’s talk about it.

Here’s the quote I mentioned, from TOTWTYTR at the CCC blog.


  1. I love your stuff, Brandon.
    The only thing I think pulse oximetry is even marginally good for is to evaluate the effect of interventions- do things get better?
    The more I learn about it, the more interesting I find capnography, as a much better tool.
    Even so, you’re right that a poor general impression trumps most anything.
