Dr Synonymous Show 10/23/2012 Humble, Collaborative Docs IBS & Blogs
Starting with information about the issues in the upcoming Presidential election, Dr Synonymous then reviews some information from JAMA about Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and correlation with risk factors for CAD. Then comments on a JAMA article reflecting on small studies showing large effects being exagerated due to sample size. A study about parachute jumps with and without a parachute that will never be undertaken was used to make a point. Large studies seldom find large effects. Docs should be collaborative and humble about uncertainties.
Diagnosis and treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is discussed next from The American Family Physician 9/1/2012.
