Anaphylaxis? Come to the ED. Runny Nose? Nope
from Emergency Medicine News (opinion)
Graham Walker, MD, writes, "One-third of patients are sicker than they think they are, a third aren't as sick as they think, and one-third of patients are as sick as they think they are. ... Those percentages might need to be tweaked for your particular ED, but the concept really helped me understand my patients a bit better and see their perspectives, which is often challenging as a specialist who knows sick v. not sick and emergency v. not emergency."
