    Medical Deaths :

    3rd leading cause of death in the US.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...united-states/

    "Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that "medical errors" in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States -- claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer's."

    Interesting topic Talon, you don't disappoint.

    When I was young I was pronounced dead for a while but came back so to speak. The next day I woke up and after my condition stabilized I was taken out to an ambulance to be transferred to a larger hospital. The paramedics gave me something to sedate me but it didn't go well with what they had given me in the hospital and put me into a coma. I'm sure they expected to be sued but that isn't how my Parents were, they just wanted everyone to do their best.

    After waking from the coma a month later I was soon moved to a private room and one afternoon the kidney specialist was by to talk to my Parents about my condition. My kidneys were the only thing that hadn't restarted after my death and coma so I was on dialysis regularly. The kidney doctor said that he was concerned that my sodium level was so low even though he had sodium added during dialysis. My Father was surprised to hear this as they had me on a low sodium diet now that I was able to eat.


    Lots of miscommunications occur and some are fatal but I think that most medical facilities do their best to avoid problems.

      A couple of decades later I was having surgery on my knee. I was given a marker and asked to write "Operate on this knee" on the knee to be operated on and "Not this knee" on the other. When the anesthesiologist came it to sedate me he freaked out because I was already asleep. He woke me and asked if another anesthesiologist had already been in to sedate me. I laughed and told him that I worked long hours and if you left me alone for a few minutes I would catch a nap.

          I've had seven or eight upper endoscopes and always schedule for the late afternoon. I get up early in the morning before and drink about a half gallon of water so I won't be dehydrated. When the nurse asks if I have had anything to eat or drink today I tell them. I enjoy the shocked look on their face but the doctor says it's fine and it makes it easier for them to find my veins.

                  I just read an article where robots are now doing the hair transplant surgery making it cheaper for you guys.

                  Some of you may want to look into that.

                  You're welcome

                  Glad I could help

                    It is. I've watched what can happen when you put too much trust in a doctor/hospital. My daughter lay in a hospital bed for four days, her appendix had been ruptured for at least two of those. The hospital didn't have someone to read the results of a scan and didn't call someone in to do so. She was then in ICU for 6 more days at the hospital that saved her life.

                    I don't fully trust doctors and their ideas now.

                      I hope you made them write off that ICU bill (or better yet, sued their ass over it)
