I made contact with Dr Segun Olunsanya via Twitter to discuss some of the issues around the fluid management of the sick patient. He in turn persuaded a couple of others involved in ITU. This has led to this fascinating discussion around this issue and it is one of the podcasts I am most pleased with. I have tried to include a lot of the links to the papers and sites we discuss below.
A great conversation and very useful. I am hoping to be able to repeat this type of discussion again.
This weeks TED talk from NPR radio that I want to send you to is one by Margaret Heffernan called “Dare to Disagree” in which she tells the story of Dr Alice Stewart a physician who found a link between cancer and X Rays. This is also about discovering the truth and acting upon it. Well worth listening to.
Margaret has also written a book called “Wilfull Blindness”
